DISB comes with a SPI interface, which makes it ideal for fast and easy integration into your instrument. It offers fast read out – up to 550 Hz for 2048 pixels – and accurate timing control in 200 nanosecond steps with only 10 nanosecond jitter.

“The DISB electronics, in combination with Ibsen’s FREEDOM HR spectrometers, is a great choice for compact, yet high performing LIBS instruments” says Dr. Jens-Uwe Günther from Secopta analytics GmbH.

Ibsen’s new DISB line of electronics supports the S11639 CMOS and S11156 BT-CCD detector arrays from Hamamatsu. More detectors will be added to the list in the future. The current two models are called: DISB-101 and DISB-380 – they work with Ibsen’s FREEDOM 101 and 380 series of spectrometer.

DISB helps instrument integrators avoid the hassle of developing an analogue electronics interface and offers detector array control, analogue to digital conversion (16 bit), fast SPI interface, on-board storage of calibration and also hardware and software triggering options.
