SKU: TO-nanoboard Category:

Introducing the Board TO-SpectraNano, the newly developed electronic platform for our line of Nano Spectrometers, “Made by Scientist for Scientists” ™ and offered by Thunder Optics. Equipped with a specially designed high-performance instrumentation input, the Board TO-SpectraNano provides an optimal interface between the linear CCD and 16-bit A/D, a 600 MHz microcontroller, and accessory analog and digital I/O ports.

With its extremely small form factor (40x70mm), this controller board offers seamless integration into a wide range of instruments, making it a versatile choice for researchers across various fields. The controller delivers an impressive set of technical specifications, including a frame rate of up to 100 FPS, a data transfer rate of 0.00008 seconds per frame, and an analog resolution of 16 bits. Its sensitivity of 200 V/(lx*s) and dynamic range of over 108 ensure accurate and precise data capture for scientific applications.

The controller’s digital input and output ports, as well as its analog inputs, allow for flexible and efficient experimentation. It offers multiple operating modes, including continuous, clocked, fast shutter, triggered single frame, triggered clocked frame set, and gated modes, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of scientific experiments. The controller’s compact size and modular design, along with its exceptional technical capabilities, make it an essential tool for scientific research.
