Excelitas Technologies to Present at MEMS and Sensors Technical Congress
Session to Detail the Development of a Lens-less Surface-Mount Device (SMD) Thermopile Solution to Detect Motion, Presence and Temperature from One Compact Unit
WALTHAM, Mass., May 3, 2017 – Excelitas Technologies® Corp., a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, today announced that Applications Engineer Prometeusz Jasinski will present “A Lens-less SMD Thermopile Solution for Near Field People Recognition in Today’s Thin Battery Operated Devices” at the MEMS and Sensors Technical Congress at Stanford University, May 10 – 11, 2017.
Jasinski’s presentation will detail Excelitas’ development of a new range of intelligent IR sensor, consisting of a single-pixel thermopile and a signal processing unit in one package, which is capable of detecting people in a range of up to 3 meters in a field of view of 120° without any optical system. Pyroelectric sensors in combination with a multi-focal fresnel lens have been the best value solution for most applications dealing with motion detection to date; however, this approach is reaching its limitations as devices continue to become smaller and more compact. The combination of an interrupt feature and a very low power consumption of only 50µW make the new sensor ideal for today’s thin battery operated handheld devices.
The key to the CaliPile Multi-Function Infrared Sensor is both high sensitivity and a smart internal background subtraction algorithm to suppress unwanted false triggers and separate the signal from the background. The solution combines motion detection, presence detection and temperature measurement in one compact digital thermal infrared package. It features selectable frequency filters and levels for setting the product into one of the three major operation modes, each of which can be set into individual use cases to achieve custom operations.
Jasinski’s presentation will take place on Wednesday, May 10 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. The complete conference agenda is available at:
