HEO 6001 Developer Kit

We currently offer 2 versions of the HED 6001 microdisplay. A version for the visible range and a version for the near infrared up to 1100 nm. For both versions developer kits are availalbe including the display, a standard driveboard and all necessary accessories to run the display for testing and evaluation.

The kit is highly programmable and allows a tailored configuration according the specific requirements. The driveboard uses an HDMI interface for addressing images and an USB connection for advanced calibrations. Via the USB connection (UART USB slot) the user can perform various display adjustments like gamma correction, geometrical settings and different sequences can be loaded to the driver. Besides this the driver features a trigger sync output to synchronize the device with external devices.

The driverboard also features a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor. This enables the user to program additional functionality which is directly processed on the driver (e.g. a slideshow from images which are loaded from USB flash (via OTG USB slot) or from internal memory). The dual-core system runs an embedded Linux™ SMP operating system and includes a library which provides full control and supervision of the display and driver itself.

The driverboard provides access through Serial and Ethernet-over-USB2 (RNDIS) interfaces and can be programmed using standard Ubuntu™ cross compile GCC toolchain.
