Theuwissen, A. Xie, N. Contributor Cugny, B. (editor) Armandillo, E. (editor) Karafolas, N. (editor) Publication year 2017 Abstract What started as an academic development in frame of the Dutch MicroNed program five years ago should culminate in the introduction of the smallest digital sunsensor available in (and probably outside) of Europe at the ICSO. At the ICSO, TNO plans to show for the first time a working mini-DSS, based on the APS+ chip. The sunsensor has been optimized for low power, low recurring costs and high repeatability in production. In order to achieve this, several innovations have been included and verified in a diverse range of supporting programs. During the presentation, trades performed that lead to the current setup, as well as the properties of the sensor system and interfaces will be discussed.
