JENA, Germany, Dec. 8, 2010 — A new member of the multiple color sensors family manufactured by Mazet GmbH is the integrated TIAM4 module. In addition to the spectral operating detector, it contains the entire sensor electronics on-chip.
The photocurrents of the detector are converted into voltages and are available via S & H on a multiplex on the output side as an analog voltage signal for digital conversion. The transimpedance amplifer is individually programmable over eight levels and is characterized by good linearity in the amplifier stages and by low noise.
The compact sensor solution, when combined with an appropriate light source, is suitable for fast and/or portable color measuring. The company offers this new sensor together with an extensive software library for highly accurate and fast color measurement. For initial test measurements, evaluation boards are available that can be optionally integrated in their own test software using dynamic link libraries if needed.
With the TIAM4, the company expands its family of long-term stable color sensors that can be used even at higher temperatures without drift phenomena.
