PixelSensor allows for smaller-scale multi-spectral sensing

PixelTeq has rolled out its PixelSensor, an 8-band multi-spectral photodiode array that integrates eight wavelength-selective photodiodes into a 9mm square sensor for smaller-scale multi-spectral sensing. Integrating spectral filters at the sensor level simplifies optical designs and lowers device integration costs, according to the company.

The PixelSensor photodiode splits the visible spectrum into eight discrete colour bands. The device's standard 20pin LCC package can be surface or socket mounted. Common cathode operation provides low noise and fast response time. Customised OEM versions of PixelSensor are also available with user-defined spectral bands. Using PixelTeq's exclusive micro-patterned optical filter technology, narrowband filters deliver improved sensitivity and contrast for multi-spectral applications from portable colour monitors to industrial and scientific instruments.
