Hamamatsu Presents Position-Detecting Computational Sensor

Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a new profile sensor with an embedded computing function. This sensor, S15366, is specifically designed to calculate signals from the incident light spot within its processing chip and output incident light position information. Since this new profile sensor can output the incident light positions as coordinate data, it needs no external controller for computing processing.

Sales of this new profile sensor are scheduled to start from September 1, 2021 mainly for manufacturers of surveying equipment and factory automation equipment.

    1. As the company says, "mainly for manufacturers of surveying equipment and factory automation equipment."

      Ning XIE realized her sensor without comparators, but with "Winner-take-it-all" circuitry on the columns and the rows. Her work was intended for a sun detector (satellite navigation) and realized extra-ordinary accuracies.
