Using DLP® Development Kits for 3D Optical Metrology Systems
Structured light is the process of projecting known patterns of pixels onto an object. When combined with a synchronized camera, a structured light pattern generator can enable highly accurate 3D optical measurements. This application note presents the operating theory of structured light systems, as well as the key components and design considerations. Special attention is given to hardware selection (pattern generator and camera), and choice o...
Whitepaper: The role of multicore in the evolution of communications
In the last decade we have experienced huge changes in the way we communicate. We have moved from fixed and wired plain old telephone service (POTS) to briefcase-sized mobile phones, and more recently to smartphones. Behind the scenes we have moved seamlessly from the circuit switched technology of the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and early cellular networks to the packet switched technologies of the Internet.
