Innovative sensor solution helps manage LEDs for backlighting

May 02, 2014 // By Paul Buckley
MAZeT GmbH has developed JENCOLOR-based products to control and manage LEDs in backlighting and display applications.

The new products will be demonstrated at the SENSOR + TEST international trade fair in Nuremberg from June 3rd to 5th 2014 and at the Lightfair International 2014 in Las Vegas USA in June 2014.

In addition to mixed signal ASIC design and custom base boards for COM modules from different vendors are the application-specific development utilizing the JENCOLOR color and spectral sensor expertise. MAZeT takes over the supply and servicing of customers' products for the entire product life cycle.

With the sensor board MTCS-INT-AB4 MAZeT offers the latest generation of OEM True Color sensor boards based on the JENCOLOR filter technology. The sensor board can be directly attached to the light source via simple optical connectors. The board sends the measured color values to the attached electronic input via I²C interface (XYZ values based on CIE1931). The recorded input data can be used for any color management task.

The board includes the True Color sensor MTCSiCF as well as the analog-to-digital signal converter MCDC04EQ which makes it possible to utilize a real color feedback loop for LED solutions to eliminate color drifts caused by temperature fluctuations, aging or binning.

The MTCS-INT-AB4 OEM sensor board assists companies without their own hardware development to integrate a cost-efficient solution or to provide initial testing options.
