FlexLight LC4500 EKT Controller
The FlexLight LC4500 EKT controller is a production-ready version of the Texas Instruments LightCrafter™ 4500, with full-featured implementation of the TI DLP4500 chipset, supporting a direct BeagleBone Black cape interface and on-board MSP430 micro-controller.
Like the Texas Instruments LightCrafter™ 4500, the Keynote Photonics LC4500 EKT is based on the TI 0.45” WXGA digital micro-mirror array (DLP4500FQD, DLP4500FQE and DLP4500NIRFQE). With more than one million micro-mirrors, the LC4500-EKT is ideal for advanced light control applications. In terms of connectivity, the LC4500 EKT controller provides a direct interface for the popular BeagleBone Black development platform, with which you can create your own complete spectroscopy solution. It also has a direct SPI interface connector and general purpose IO connectors to support both 3D SLA printers or spectroscopy.
The LC4500 EKT supports the DLPC350 API and LightCrafter™ 4500 software toolset. If you choose to use the BeagleBone Black configuration, you can stream patterns using our LC4500-PEM application. This allows for rapid development of your 3D measurements, or using a variety of structured light pattern sequences for different measurement techniques.
An MSP430 micro-controller is integrated on the main control board, allowing for customized configurations and modes of the DLP chipset. The controller is versatile, offering single-color or 3-color display options. Common applications for these kits are 3D printing, 3D measurement and NIR spectroscopy.
