The Model 600 will allow the user to capture image spectral data
from any scene and provide CIE Chromaticity Coordinates of each pixel located
in that scene. It can be used to quantify
spectral transmittance, reflectance, as well as output from illumination and display
systems. The Model 600 measures spectral
energy from 380nm to 780nm. This spectral
information can be used to calculate various color coordinates of reflectance
colors under various types of illuminants.
Resulting color units includes: Tristimulus values, chromaticity
coordinates, CIELAB 1976, Hunter Lab, CIE 1976 UCS and CCT (Correlated Color
Temperature). The Model 600 allows, for the first time, the measurement of
color on three-dimensional products that could not be previously measured. Design engineers no longer have to rely on
flat, sample plaques to infer measurements on three-dimensional shaped
products. The application of the Model 600 is only limited to their
imagination. For example, the graphic arts industry does not currently have a
means of directly measuring color of the final printed product. Instead it relies upon indirect or inferred
measurements. They may even rely on
numerous single point measurements. This device can map delta E over an entire
package surface. The Model 600 ground breaking technology allows color
measurements to be performed over large areas. Additionally, the system
performs automatic sample image alignment to a previously stored electronic
standard. This allows high-accuracy, full visible spectrum color measurements
and delta E mappings to be performed over large areas. This single system can be used to measure
reflective, transmissive and radiated color, as well as color differences. All this capability is inherent in a single
system. The applications are limitless. The company says there is nothing
similar on the market today providing full spectrum color measurements over
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
