Delta Handheld

XRF analyzer

System on Module

Olympus Corporation is an international company operating in industrial, medical, and consumer markets specializing in optics, electronics, and precision engineering.

Olympus offers a range of X-ray-based material characterization machines.

The Application

The Delta Alloys & Metals Handheld XRF Analyzer from Olympus provides highly specific material chemistry analysis to rapidly and accurately identify alloy grades and pure metals. X-Ray Fluorescence is a powerful analytical instrumental method used in a wide variety of industries to determine the elemental composition of various materials. The Delta can determine alloy chemistry and grade identification in seconds, ranging from simple sorting to challenging grade separations. It provides recognition and analysis of 88% of the elements in the periodic table and its use ranges from incoming material inspection to end-product verification.

The Solution

PHYTEC designed a custom Carrier Board supporting the phyCORE-i.MX31 for the first-generation Delta. A nextgen Delta device was based on a phyCORE-OMAP4430 SOM for which PHYTEC likewise developed a custom Carrier Board. PHYTEC also provided customized Windows Embedded CE 6.0 and Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSPs to support the following features of the Delta: LCD, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, accelerometer, GPIO, special interrupts, USB camera, and power management.
