SSOC-A60

Overview

Sun Sensor on a Chip (SSoC), is based on MEMS fabrication processes to achieve highly integrated sensing structures for high accurate sun-tracking, positioning systems and attitude determination.

SSOC-A60 device measures the incident angle of a sun ray in two axes. The high sensitivity is based on geometrical dimensions of the design. The use of a metal shield and a cover glass in the optical eye minimizes the ageing of the device under high radiation levels.
