Integrated colour sensor helps stabilize LED lights

March 14, 2016 // By Julien Happich
The MTCS-CDCAF colour sensor from MaZet features a true colour filter function, integrated signal amplification based on charge-to-digital conversion, and an on-chip temperature sensor.

The sensor combines the functions of the company's Jencolor MTCSiCF detector and the digital signal converter MCDC04. Additionally, it is optimally tailored to the specific requirements of applications such as lighting, allowing the sensor to precisely measure the colour coordinates of light as XYZ signals in the CIE 1931 color space.
Areas of application include the measurement of color temperature (CCT) and chromaticity, brightness, and other light-related parameters such as PWM frequency and flicker in LED lights and monitor backlight systems. The sensor is available in a QFN16 package and is intended for direct installation in lights.
