FAQ

What is a “DLP Design House”?

A DLP Design House is company recognized by Texas Instruments as a 3rd party resource to assist Texas Instruments customers in the development of DLP based systems.  The distinction is afforded to a few companies worldwide who have demonstrated the knowledge and abilities required by Texas Instruments to qualify as a DLP Design House.

So, Keynote Photonics is a DLP Design House?

Correct.  Keynote Photonics also holds the distinction of being the only DLP Design House that started and is still staffed primarily by former DLP staff members ranging from top DLP technologists and development engineers to DLP Business Unit Managers.  You will not find a 3rd party organization with more DLP experience than Keynote Photonics.  In addition, Keynote’s headquarters and assembly site are just a couple of miles from DLP Headquarters in Plano, TX.

What are Keynote Photonics products intended to do?

Keynote Photonics is a developer and provider of DLP® tools and solutions for photonics applications including machine vision, biometrics, spectroscopy, 3D metrology, and lithography.

What are the differences between the products sold by Texas Instruments on the TI eStore and the Keynote solutions?

TI provides basic reference designs and modules to allow developers to explore and understand the fundamental technology. Their products are neither intended to be integrated into a production solution nor are there features or capabilities needed for a complete solution. For example, the TI LightCrafter includes a thermal sensor on the LED, however there is no way to read it through the included API. Our LC3000 products include this, and several other features essential for a complete product. We also offer variants that support a brighter solution (the LC3000PRO, very shot focal distances, and UV LED’s. We also can offer other customized solutions.
