Designer toolkit to prototype PixelSensor-based optical sensors
Largo, Fla. (January 24, 2014) – PIXELTEQ has introduced a multispectral sensor Developer Board that helps OEMs design and prototype optical sensors based on its PixelSensor™ wavelength-selective photodiode arrays. PixelSensor’s exclusive wafer-level optical filters simplify optical designs and enable OEMs to implement precision multispectral measurement in smaller devices. Designers can choose board and accessory options that help them get started with spectral sensing in minutes for a wide range of biomedical, industrial and scientific applications.
The PixelSensor Developer Board includes the essential hardware and a cross-platform GUI interface to configure measurement settings of each spectral band individually, trigger external functions, communicate with other devices, and display and log data. In addition to comprehensive sensor evaluation, designers can program application-specific functions using the Arduino integrated development environment.
It’s exciting to see the breakthrough multispectral applications our clients are developing – biometric monitors, chemical sensing, and precision colorimetry in remarkably small packages,” stated Randel Mercer, Vice President of Business Development. “Our goal is to help developers simplify the optical design and shrink the overall device footprint. The PixelSensor Developer Board helps them deliver rapid prototypes and get to revenue faster.
