I need help in knowing how to input fies onto the software provided. Any information is appreciated.

  • Hello Keerthana,

    Could you clarify what is meant by "input files?  Do you mean batch files or pattern files?

    Do you mean the GUI?


  • In reply to Fizix:

    Yes, I'm having trouble finding a way to input any kind of files intot he GUI.

    Could you help me with that?

    Thank you

    Hello Kerthana,

    There are two places to load "files":

      • Pattern Design files can be loaded on any of the three Pattern Mode tabs:
        • Pre-stored Pattern Mode
        • Video Pattern Mode
        • Pattern On-The-Fly Mode

    The red box in the image below shows how to save a Pattern Design and how to load a Pattern Design once saved:

    For an example of Pattern On-the-Fly file that you can load see this directory on your GUI installation:

    C:\Texas Instruments-DLP\DLPC900REF-SW-4.0.1\DLPC900REF-GUI\LCR6500_Images (or wherever your GUI is installed)

    Find the *.txt files there - a good example is add_400.txt, which loads 400 1-bit images.

      • Batch Files can be loaded on this tab:

    The red box shows the Save and Load functions.  The magenta box enables recording batch files to be Saved and later Loaded.

    For this, record a few simple commands and then save the file.  You can edit the file and then load it.

    Unfortunately both files are *.txt files.  If you attempt to load the wrong type it will give an error message.

    A great deal of this is covered in the DLP LightCrafter 6500 and 9000 EVM User's Guide (Rev. D).
