MAZeT introduces Evaluation Board and MTCS-INT-AB5 Development Kit for MTCS-CDCAF Color Sensor

Absolute Color Measurement via integrated True Color Sensor

Jena, (PresseBox) - MAZeT GmbH, the development and manufacturing services provider for embedded systems and optoelectronics, has introduced the MTCS-INT-AB5 sensor board for the fully integrated MTCS-CDCAF sensor chip from the JENCOLOR® product line. MAZeT offers this sensor board as both an evaluation board for system and application tests and as part of a development kit. "MAZeT’s MTCS-INT-AB5 sensor board is another True Color sensor board based on JENCOLOR® filter technology," explains Frank Krumbein, Product Manager for Color and Spectral Sensoring at MAZeT. "The MTCS-INT-AB5 can be directly connected to a light source via optical technology. The color values measured over the sensor’s I²C interface in accordance with the CIE 1931 standard are transmitted to corresponding electronics as input data for color management tasks." The board includes memory for saving calibration data and additional user data related to the application as well as an I2C interface. It works well as an evaluation system for the MTCS-CDCAF. Typical applications for the sensor board include measuring light colors for multispectral LED arrays and calibrating color on monitors. It can also be used for photometric applications.

The MTCS-INT-AB5 sensor board is also available as part of a development kit for system and application tests. The sensor board is mounted in housing and can be controlled via USB. It is easy to configure and calibrate the MTCS-INT-AB5 using PC supported test software. Control files on the PC level take over specifications for the sensor and sensor electronics. Once the development kit has successfully validated an application, the sensor electronics programming can be easily transferred to a microcontroller, and the sensor board from the test kit can be directly integrated into the device electronics via the I²C interface. MAZeT offers software libraries for initial tests as well as mapping. These software libraries contain routines for measurements and color management. MAZeT can adjust basic software in keeping with user requirements regarding used light sources and various target parameters such as light color, brightness, energy consumption, CRI, and much more. MAZeT also offers preliminary simulations for feasibility analyses, and can perform these in a way that supports development.
