Multispectral Photodiode Arrays from PIXELTEQ at Compamed

8-band spectral sensor for portable OEM devices

Duiven, Netherlands (November 11, 2013) – PIXELTEQ will demonstrate its PixelSensor™ multispectral photodiodes at the 2013 Compamed exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, Hall 08b, Stand N15.  The PixelSensor photodiode array packs 8 wavelength-selective photodiodes into a tiny 9mm square package that enables precision multispectral measurement in smaller devices.  PixelSensor typically replaces 10-20 optical components – simplifying optical designs for scalable production assembly of biomedical instruments from application-specific spectroscopy to fluorescence detection.


Customised OEM versions of PixelSensor are also available with user-defined spectral bands.  A new PixelSensor Developer Kit provides hardware and software tools that help designers get started with spectral sensing in minutes, free to experiment and configure purpose-built optical sensors.  “Detecting targeted narrowband colours and optical wavelengths in such a small footprint is a powerful benefit for a wide range of medical devices,” states Marco Snikkers, Marketing & Sales Director at PIXELTEQ.  “It’s exciting to see how our clients are using PixelSensor to create application-specific sensors that improve health and quality of life for people worldwide.”  PixelSensor and its optional accessories are now available online at

PIXELTEQ provides micro-patterned spectral filters, sensors, and cameras – helping users shrink multi-wavelength devices into a single package, enable new optical features, and deliver application-specific sensors and cameras.
