Spectral Sensing for Mobile Devices

ams is a leading provider of chip-scale spectral sensing solutions, offering products with a variety of unique filter characteristics. 

These solutions benefit from proprietary ams technology for fabricating interferometric optical filters directly on the wafer, producing spectrometer-like performance in a sensor-sized package. The ams spectral sensors can splice the light spectrum into separate signals which can be read out and analysed.

The ams interferometric filters are designed with spectral characteristics suited to various applications in the visible and Near Infrared (NIR) range. With the development of new sensors offering a higher channel count and resolution, more and more applications can move away from the lab and into mobile and consumer devices.
