Texas Instruments’ Discovery 4000 Starter Kit lets developers create applications based on TI’s digital light processing (DLP) system. Kits start at $4999 for a 1024-by-768, 0.55-in. digital micromirror device (DMD). The kit includes a board with the DMD and support FPGA and ASIC chips. Windows drivers are included. A 1080p version is available. The DMD can operate across the light spectrum from IR to UV, suiting it for many different applications. For example, companies such as Fuji and Hitachi are using DMDs with directimaging maskless lithography.
