DLP2000: Run DLP2000 on Raspberry Pi running windows 10 IoT

Part Number: DLP2000
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDA-00361, DLPDLCR2000EVM, DLPC2607


There arew two thing that I want to do, the first one is as the question states, how can I run DLP2000 (the one that is a beaglebone cape) run on Raspberry Pi and Windows IoT? I've read that it is possible, but I haven't found much information on people actually doing it.

The reason for using windows 10 IoT, is that I want to do something similar with the DLP2000 as the TIDA-00361. I want to use this projector in order to obtain a point cloud. With the DLP3000 EVK is simple because the SDK already supports it, but there is no built-in support for DLP2000. Is Texas Instruments planning on adding the DLP2000 projector to the SDK or will I have to do it on my own? If so, is there any available documentation that could assist me on doing it?

  • Pablo,

    Thanks for your interest in our DLP products.

    For starters, I recommend you review the DLPDLCR2000EVM User's Guide at which features an EVM pinout mapping for your convenience. Please see section 3.2 for the aforementioned diagram.

    To interface the Raspberry PI with the EVM, you will need to use jumpers or print an adapter board. Since most models of the Raspberry Pi have distinctly fewer pinouts compared to the BeagleBone Black, you may need to use a smaller video format. In particular, the EVM normally communicates with the BeagleBone using 24-bit RGB888. Since there aren't enough pinouts on the Raspberry Pi you may need to use, for instance, 16-bit RGB565 instead. This can be accomplished using I2C commands referenced in section of the DLPC2607 programmer's guide at

    I also suggest you search the E2E forums for other threads relating to this topic, which may help:

    As for your questions regarding the SDK, I do not believe that SDK support for the DLP2000 is planned at this time. If you want to develop your own SDK support, you may need to refer to the python sample code provided with the Debian installation used with the DLPDLCR2000EVM.

    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,

    Philippe Dollo

  • Thank you for your response and sorry for the time it tooks me to answer. I have just one question ... where can I find the python code?

  • Pablo,

    The python code can be found in Debian Jessie 8.9, after the OS is installed to the BeagleBone Black.
