In-Line Angular Spectral Measurements of Displays with the New CubeX-150 from ELDIM

ELDIM’s multi-angle spectroradiometer CubeX-150 is ideally suited for both R&D teams and mass production lines due to its speed, accuracy and multi-application use. The CubeX-150 is based on completely new technology patented by ELDIM.

To understand this technology, imagine that you are moving a spectrometer around the DUT (Device Under Test) and taking a measurement every 2.5° in a viewing cone of +/-60°. The CubeX-150 provides emission data, including flicker information, at all these angles.  The measurement takt time of the equipment is less than 2 seconds, and all of the acquired data can be transferred by ethernet cable or WIFI.  This equipment operates in the visible wavelength range and is used to measure displays including LED, OLED, uLED and Micro Displays in a wide range of sectors including Automotive, Avionics, General displays, Military and Mobile phone applications.
