As part of element14’s RoadTest program, I recently got to review Texas Instruments’ DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 pico projector for BeagleBone Black. After finishing the review, I wasn’t satisfied with the performance of the BeagleBone Black, and decided to swap it out in favour of a Raspberry Pi 3B+.
Credits go to Philip Hodgers, whose post I found on TI’s E2E forum, for figuring out the wiring and config parameters to get the projector to work via the Pi’s DPI interface.
