How to make our own DLP projector
Dear Peter Liu,
Welcome to DLP&MEMS forum.
We are more than happy to assist you in this regard. Thank you for considering DLP technology for your 3D measurement application. We are glad to know that you have sucessfully completed proof-of-concept on DLP LightCommander(TM) Kit and moving forward to building your own hardware.
Thanks to your reply,I have understood most of it.But there are still some questions and sths to be comfirmed.
Sorry for delayed response, I was on business travel.
1. No. Cypress USB controller binary file is yet to be put on the web. We are also thinking if a direct programmable EEPROM file image can generated so that you can directly put it on the EEPROM device without needing use CyConsole tool. So if the programmed EEPROM is put on the board the Cypress USB controller would automatically work.
2. DLPR200 firmware is for uprgade only. For the blank flash part we will put another binary file which ~8MB size. Sure, we can recommend TI microcontrollers for you. Please allow some time for it.
3. Yes config file is 'batch file'. If you open a 'batch file' you would see many register configuration details also the images it referring to. Yes, batch file will be stored into the flash. Ideally there is no difference in the images stored in Parallel Flash and DDR2 memory. Parallel Flash as configuration information in addition to the images. So when DLPC200 start configuring from the parallel flash, it will first configure its internal registers then transfers the images from parallel flash to DDR2 memory.
4. For the pricing details you can contact to TI sales people based in China. Based on your need you can consider building a custom board or use the LightCommander(TM) standard PCB .
Our firm has a similar control solution that uses the DLP5500 chipset we call the X3-PM55. You can get some additional detail on it by clicking here. It is backward compatible with LightCommander tools and also supports additional dynamic pattern generation the beyond existing DLPC200 capabilities. We would be happy to discuss possible business solutions with you.

Here are answers to your questions.
2. I will be putting this shortly on the TI web. Since I have your email id let check if i can share the earlier version for you to try.
3. Unfortunately the DLP Sequence Compiler DLL cannot be shared outside. I suggest you to use the GUI to generate batchfile for different exposure timing and have one big project with several solution in it with each solution having one exposure timing setting.
4. Let me know if you are still waiting for TI China sales response.
I'm so sorry to reply to you so late ,because I have a series of classes these days.Now we are preparing to layout the PCB of the project.
We still have some problems:
1.we don't know how to download the binary file to the DLPR200 and where is the 8MB binary file?
2.since you said the DLP Sequence Compiler DLL cannot be shared outside,we have to use your method,but i hope there is another way better than it.
1. Since it is still in the process of putting on the extranet. I will check here if an early beta version can be released to you. I have your email id with me.
2. Unfortunately that is the only method we have at present. That is build the configuration data from the GUI, create the flash image, put on the flash then use UINT8 DLP_RegIO_InitFromParallelFlashOffset (UINT32 offset, UINT8 reset) to switch between configurations.
Thanks so much!
Uhm...It is to say that we can put different configurations in the flash at the same time ?
But we just use the GUI to create the batchfile.And run the batchfile into the flash.
Could you give us a demo to use the UINT8 DLP_RegIO_InitFromParallelFlashOffset?
The threads here help you understand better.
Let us know if you have any questions.
