Ames launched the world's first multi-channel spectral on-chip sensor solution
in order to greatly reduce the cost and size of spectral analysis, widely apply to food safety, product certification, routine testing and other applications, and help better protect people's health and living environment, on January 17, 2017, Amsag, a leading high-performance sensor solution and analog IC supplier, announced the launch of the world's first cost-effective multi-channel spectral on-chip sensor solution, opening the way for a new generation of spectral analyzers for consumer and industrial applications
using 4.5x4.4mm small array package, ultra-low power as721 published articles reported that the lumbar artificial intervertebral disc 62 visible light sensor and as7263 near infrared sensor both provide six calibrated spectral channels. The competitive price advantage makes this new multi-channel spectral sensor open a door for the testing and use of consumer products and various applications in the real field. Its main solutions include material and product certification, product quality and integrity, and material content analysis in near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) and visible spectroscopy
jeanfrancoisdurix, market director of emerging sensor systems of Ames semiconductor, said: "The increasing integration of sensors into smart and tablet computers has formed a new wave of mobile applications. The introduction of as7262 and as7263 has made chip level spectral analysis widely used, bringing revolutionary development to spectral sensing innovation in industrial and consumer applications. The new spectral sensing solutions have greatly reduced the cost and size of spectral analysis, and are widely applicable to applications such as food safety, product certification, routine testing, etc To help better protect people's health and living environment. "
the multispectral sensor adopts new manufacturing technology, making the nano optical interference filter extremely accurately and directly attached to the CMOS silicon wafer. The interference filter technology used in this sensor has extremely high accuracy and stability, and is not affected by the use time and temperature. For example, the components commonly used in various spectral analysis instruments today are smaller in size and more cost-effective
the integrated intelligent as7262 six channel visible light sensor can provide calibrated digital output through I2C or UART interface. It can measure the light intensity of six different wavelengths within the visible light range: 450nm, 500nm, 550nm, 570nm, 600nm and 650nm. As7263 can detect the infrared characteristics of near-infrared spectra of 610nm, 680nm, 730nm, 760nm, 810nm and 860nm. Both products include an electronic shutter with LED driver circuit, which means that the device designer can accurately control the light source and spectral detection function through a single chip
the new multispectral sensor has the characteristics of small size and low power consumption. The OEM of measuring equipment can easily realize the development of new products with these characteristics. For example, bulky laboratory level analytical equipment can now be replaced by convenient handheld devices. In the factory, the samples produced today have to be sent from the production line to the laboratory for chemical analysis. In the future, the quality detection will be completed on the production line through a new compact and robust spectral analyzer based on multi spectral sensors
