TellSpec incorporates Texas Instruments DLP technology in food scanner

FBR Staff Writer Published 19 March 2014

Canada-based consumer food scanners provider TellSpec has partnered with Texas Instruments to incorporate Texas Instruments’ (TI) DLP device into the TellSpec food scanner.

The tool will help consumers identify calories, macronutrients, ingredients, allergens and chemicals in food and beverages. It combines spectroscopy and a mathematical algorithm and no longer uses lasers.

TI's DLP device supports one million programmable micro mirrors and a broadband lamp, the company noted.

TellSpec CEO Isabel Hoffmann said, "Food technology companies can now provide access to promising new threads of knowledge for consumers - and TellSpec is leading the movement when it comes to food ingredients and safety."

TI DLP Embedded Products manager Mariquita Gordon said, "TellSpec is taking advantage of DLP technology's capabilities in exciting new ways, by applying the DLP device to an advanced consumer food and health solution."

TellSpec expects to provide the first line of food scanners to beta food testers and developers in the second quarter of 2014.
