Analog, Consumer Physics team to enable material analysis anywhere

The sensor-to-cloud personal and industrial IoT platform analyzes liquids and solids, including food, plants, drugs, chemicals, the human body, and a variety of other materials. The two companies plan to embed CP’s SCiO technology for material sensing into smartphones, wearables, industrial, and medical applications.

The co-developed sensor-to-cloud platform will enable users to detect substances quickly and reliably, control quality, and measure a wide range of characteristics such as calories, fat, sugars, and proteins; sugar content (as Brix the sugar concentration of a liquid), in fruits and vegetables; alcohol content in beverages; and chemical composition of fuel and oil.

SCiO’s underlying science is called near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and has been used in laboratories around the world for decades in diverse industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, healthcare, oil and gas, plastics, cosmetics, geology, mineralogy, and many more. Current devices are large and expensive, making them unfit for current and future IoT applications.

The company’s approach is to miniaturize capture of optical information via optical sensor and signal conditioning. Algorithms use an updatable database to analyze the spectrum and deliver information about the analyzed sample back to the user in real time.

Developer kits will be available for building custom applications. SCiO Eco-System Partners can develop smartphone and wearables experiences now using the SCiO Developer Kit, available immediately.
