DLP® Discovery™ Development Kits  
DLP Discovery™ provides highest performance and flexibility by a direct mirror control interface at 50 Gbit ⁄ s data rate. DLP LightCrafter™ comes with a simplified controller interface for repeated display of one pre‑loaded pattern sequence.
The purchase of the DLP Discovery™ 4100 Development Kit gives customers access to all the technical details of the chipset and thus enables application specific FPGA logic design for the 400MHz DDC4100 interface. The DLP KnowledgeBase information is also required for launching the PCB development of a custom DLP controller board.
Typically, Development Kits are the starting point of a comprehensive hardware ⁄ firmware design and implementation. ViALUX offers the ALP‑4.1 Controller Suite also for use with the Developer Kits enabling rapid launch of proof of concept and basic investigations. High‑end use cases can be tested by ALP‑4.1 with the full performance of  the Discovery™4100 chipset even before customers have finished their own PCB and FPGA development.
