DLP® NIRscan™ Nano Evaluation Module


Order now


The DLP NIRscan Nano is a compact battery-operated evaluation module (EVM) for portable near-infrared spectroscopy solutions. Featuring the DLP2010NIR digital micromirror device (DMD), the NIRscan Nano supports Bluetooth low energy to enable mobile lab measurements for hand-held spectrometers. The EVM incorporates the DLP2010NIR DMD, a diffraction grating, and a single element detector to replace expensive InGaAs linear array-based detector designs. With its TI Tiva™ TM4C1297NCZAD processor, databases in the cloud can be leveraged through cellular networks for real-time lab equivalent analytics, which allow food or skin analysis and wearable health monitor solutions. Developers can also create their own data collection and analysis through innovative iOS and Android applications.
