Hamamatsu C12880MA MEMS u-Spectrometer

The Hamamatsu C12880MA MEMS micro-spectrometer detects wavelengths of light (i.e. colors) and their intensities. Its spectral response of 340-850 nanometers lies mostly in the visible spectrum yet extends to near infrared with 15 nm of resolution. The internal CMOS image sensor and optics are hermetically sealed to increase humidity resistance.

With its small size, light weight, and relatively low power consumption, it can be integrated into compact systems to detect fluorescence responses for organic compound analysis and do basic passive color matching (LED's, paints... ). Check out Dr. Peter Jansen's Open Source Science Tricorder to see a micro-spectrometer put to portable use.

  • Teledyne FLIR Boson

    The FLIR Boson™ longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera core is a giant leap forward in thermal imaging performance, size, and price. With its embedded Movidius Myriad 2 12-core image processor, wide range of lens options, physical shutter, and FLIR's XIR™ expandable infrared video processing architecture, it allows system integrators to take their thermal applications to far greater heights. Perform on-board video analytics, drive external sensors and peripherals, and communicate over multiple standard

  • Teledyne FLIR Lepton

    The FLIR Lepton® is a radiometric-capable LWIR camera solution that is smaller than a dime, fits inside a smartphone, and is one tenth the cost of traditional IR cameras. Using focal plane arrays of either 160x120 or 80x60 active pixels, Lepton easily integrates into native mobile-devices and other electronics as an IR sensor or thermal imager. The radiometric Lepton captures accurate, calibrated, and noncontact temperature data in every pixel of each image.

  • Teledyne FLIR ADK

    The FLIR ADK™ is a cost-effective way to develop the next generation of automotive thermal vision for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AV). Thermal infrared cameras are the best sensor technology for pedestrian detection, reliably classifying people in cluttered environments and giving analytics the critical information needed for automated decision making. The ADK’s rugged, IP67 rated enclosure incorporates a heated window for all-weather driving. With the GMSL and USB interfaces, installation is plug-and-play easy.

  • Teledyne FLIR Tau 2

    Tau® 2 thermal imaging cameras by FLIR® offer an unmatched set of features, making them well-suited for demanding applications like Unmanned Airborne Vehicles (UAVs), thermal sights, and handheld imagers. Improved electronics provide powerful image processing modes that dramatically improve detail and contrast. Its options include full radiometry, increased sensitivity (<30mK), and 640/30Hz frame rates. Since the Tau 2 640 and 336 configurations share electrical functions, common integrations can be designed that work seamlessly with both formats.
