Traditional technologies for image capture devices are based on the three RGB filters for the generation of the color signals. As an alternative, in the last years spectral methods of image capture were introduced with the prospect of several advantages for image quality and color data handling. Most of these solutions are so-called multi- spectral technologies and therefore still use filters. In this paper a spectral approach for image capturing is discussed, which is based on a diffraction grating. The grating is integrated on a micro-mirror device in a linear array structure with very small dimensions. The main design criteria and the important parameters are discussed. Also the influences of MEMS technologies for the production of such devices are shown.
