The DLP® Discovery™ 4100 developer's kit revolutionized the spatial light modulator market with unprecedented speed, control, broad
spectral reflectivity and high power tolerances. The D4100 is a bi-stable (+/- 12 degrees) MEMS device and is capable of over 32,000 binary
frames per second due to its 400MHZ 2xLVDS clock. Control, at the pixel level, is provided through a standard USB 2.0 interface but can be
expanded to utilize the full potential of the Xilinx Virtex 5 FPGA through the Avnet EXP expansion connectors. Based on its aluminum mirror
structure, the D4100 provides high reflectivity throughout the UV-SWIR spectrum. The package design of the D4100 DMD's (digital
micromirror devices) allow for continuous heat dissipation at high incident power levels and ease of mounting heat sinks to help with this
activity. Optical power limits for the DMD's are based on operating within a recommended temperature range and follow the ablation curves
of aluminum.

Discovery 4100 + ALP-4.1 Basic Developer's Kit comes bundled with the ALP-4.1 Basic Controller Suite, which offers the flexibility for
developing a custom interface through C++, .NET, Visual Basic, MATLAB, and LabView. The Discovery 4100 + ALP-4.1 Basic Developer's
Kit allows exploring the main DLP features by a convenient Graphical User interface (GUI). The GUI is used to control pattern and image
upload to the DMD and command processing. Discovery 4100 + ALP-4.1 Basic Developer's Kit also comes with a script processor for
carrying out the GUI commands which integrates with the programming language of your choice.

The Discovery 4100 + ALP-4.1 Basic Developer's Kit Controller Board includes an on-board USB 2.0 for transferring images and patterns
from a PC to the DMD with transfer rates up to 300 XGA patterns/second. The binary DMD array is addressed line by line and partial DMD
updates are supported in block-based operations. With a single-line refresh, users can reach binary frame rates up to 2,000 fps for both
XGA & 1080p, while a full-array can be addressed at up to 300 fps (XGA)/100 fps binary.
