proper optics will be integrated onto the chip before shipping the kit.

Thanks

starting from March 2015.

hopefully some in earlier.

Thanks,

please refer to this slide.

page 53 : accuracy

page 55 : resolution ( two peak separation capability )

 

Thanks

Well that makes more sense, 1nm accuracy within each 10nm filter.  Thanks!

@dt_hayden - i think 10nm is the width of each spectral filter - with an accuracy of 1nm.

Thanks bill. Sounds like a great chip that can do much usefull stuff. At what time do you see it availble to (a) app developers , (b)small custom hardware developers ?


Thanks

"accurate to 1 nm with 10nm resolution"

 

How can it be more accurate than the resolution?

I assume that this chip is used with optics that produces a Field-Of-View (FOV), a rectangular region wherein the spectrum is measured. The assumption must be that the spatial distribution of the color within the FOV must be uniform. Otherwise you will get a combination of the spatial variability of the color and the color-spectrum at individual points within the FOV.

How can we apply for one of the develoopment kits ???

Sorry for lean web page.... We are trying to be lean as a start-up :)


Here is a quick video of a demo which I showed at TSensors Summit.

Brief spec sheet and SDK info will be uploaded soon.

Thank you for your patience.

Very lean, indeed. You could glean a few specs from this slideshow (hopefully the links work): http://www.tsensorssummit.org/Resources/17-Choi.pdf

 

I'm working on receiving additional specs.
