Long before IRLAM hit the market with its leading-edge performance, HORIBA required precision signal conditioning that would reliably detect even the most subtle traces of gas. For that technology, HORIBA turned to a tech partner it was quite familiar with—the sensing solution experts at ADI. ADI’s industry-leading signal conditioning technology bridges the physical and digital world, even for tough-to-detect signals in challenging environments, like detecting toxic gases in manufacturing plants.
With a partnership spanning two decades, ADI has been providing critical devices to HORIBA’s key applications, including advanced precision technologies. These technologies have helped support HORIBA’s need for a laser driver circuit for realizing fast and sophisticated control of a light source. Today, HORIBA’s trusted confidence in ADI has grown to a more open and collaborative relationship.
For IRLAM, HORIBA leveraged ADI’s ultralow noise, high speed, and high resolution SAR ADCs for signal processing and was able to create a solution with a unique set of capabilities that is already being deployed in a variety of applications for gas measurement protocols.
When detecting dangerous gases, speed is of the essence. HORIBA’s IRLAM technology achieves both high speed and high accuracy measurement with real-time monitoring, feedback, and control of various systems and processes that previously could only be measured in batches. When you’re operating in a high throughput environment such as manufacturing plants, this capability can be a true lifesaver.
