Product Details

C12880MA MEMS u-Spectrometer
Mfr. Part #
Product Description

The Hamamatsu C12880MA is an ultra-compact spectrometer head developed based on MEMS and image sensor technologies. The spectral response ranges from visible to near infrared (340-850 nm) with a maximum resolution of 15 nm. It is an updated version of the popular C12666MA that has done 11 GroupGet rounds along with many store orders. The C12880MA has more pixels (288 vs 255) and a greater near-IR response range than the C12666MA. We therefore recommend this sensor for future designs however we will continue to carry and support the C12666MA.

Why GroupGet?

The previous generation C12666MA was super popular on GroupGets but now we want to offer the '880 due to its greater sensitivity range and resolution. It's also hard to get in single quantity.

How it works

This is a group buy campaign that needs to acquire at least the stated minimum amount of pledges from backers like you before the Unit Deliverable and any Add-Ons ship. We do not charge anyone until the Progress above hits 100% or greater, otherwise there is no charge. All campaign products are vetted as existing and functional so your order will be fulfilled within the Factory Lead Time if the campaign succeeds. Please see our FAQ page for more details on our billing process.

    Hi there, :-]
    maybe there are enough people interested in a
    which is the normal C12880MA with an adapted
    SMA connector for a fiber cable.
    See page 9 on data sheet (can't post a picture).
    Can you get a prize for a (10 pieces) GG-round ?
    & NEVER mind the import-tax :[

    have a sunny day

    Interesting idea Hurtz. We love input from the community - we'll definitely look into this.

    Hey Hurtz, we finally got a quote on the "-10" SMA option and it is really pricey. We'd have to sell it for just over $500 ea with an MoQ of 10. I'm happy to fire up a campaign for it if you will back at least one. We have had a couple of others ask since you have so maybe it will fly.
