Texas Instruments DLP® Pico(TM) Projector Development Kit Available from Digi-Key

Kit includes power supply and video cables for connecting to a Beagle Board

(PresseBox) (Thief River Falls, Minnesota, ) Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, announced today that it is stocking Texas Instruments' DLP Pico Projector Development Kit, a fully integrated and miniaturized light projection solution that can be quickly and easily integrated into the design process for new industrial, medical, and consumer products.

Priced at $349 and available now exclusively on Digi-Key's global websites, the Pico Projector Development Kit (Digi-Key part number 296-23836-ND) is a new way of enabling developers to integrate digital projection into their own innovative applications. Potential applications for this kit include simple 3D measurement applications, virtual cosmetics, augmented reality, battery or USB powered display applications, projection of video and images, and miniature applications that do not have space for a large display.

The Pico Projector Development Kit includes an HVGA resolution, DLP projection device with a light engine that uses three solid-state color LEDs as a low power light source. The kit also includes a power supply cable and video cable specifically for connecting to a BeagleBoard, a development board that contains the OMAP35x processor and is supported by an open-source Linux community. The Pico Projector Development Kit is specifically designed to interface with the BeagleBoard to expedite development.

"We are very excited about offering TI's DLP Pico technology to our customers. The Pico Projector Development Kit will enable the development of a wide array of embedded systems in the high-growth medical, industrial and consumer segments, creating flexibility and options on how information and content is shared. With regard to the pairing of the pico projector and the BeagleBoard, it will be fun to see what engineers come up with using these two gadgets," said Mark Larson, Digi-Key president and COO.
