New Image Sensor for 2-D Infrared Imaging

InGasAs 192 × 96 pixels sensor

  InGaAs area image sensor G13544-01Online  —  The new Hamamatsu G13544-01infrared image sensor has a hybrid structure consisting of a CMOS readout circuit (ROIC: readout integrated circuit) and back-illuminated InGaAs photodiodes.

Each pixel is made up of an InGaAs photodiode and a ROIC electrically connected by indium bump.

The timing generator in the ROIC provides an analog video output and AD-TRIG output which are obtained by just supplying digital inputs.The G13544-01 has 192 × 96 pixels arrayed at a 50 ?m pitch.

Light incident on the InGaAs photodiodes is converted into electrical signals which are then input to the ROIC through indium bumps. (more…)

Near-Infrared (NIR) IP Camera for Surveillance Systems

Both Indoor & Outdoor

Image Comparison under 850 nm illuminationOnline — Digital imaging developer OmniVision Technologies, Inc. and VATICS Inc., a multimedia communication system-on-chip (SoC) solutions provider have collaborated to develop a near-infrared (NIR) IP camera solution,  VATICS’ M5S SoC, for 5 MPixel indoor and outdoor surveillance systems.

VATICS’ M5S SoC combines an ARM Cortex processor core, a CEVA DSP, a SmartHEVC/AVC new generation of image signal processor, a de-warping hard core, and advanced audio and video analytics, according to Joseph Wei, senior marketing director at VATICS. (more…)

InAsSb Infrared Detectors from VIGO Systems

European IR Detector Supplier

Infrared DetectorsOnline — The InAsSb Series IR detectors are heterostructure photovoltaic devices based on InAsSb alloys.

The design of the devices have been inspired by successful architecture of the VIGO HgCdTe HOT devices.

Constant voltage bias and current readout mode should be used for the best performance, large linearity range and broadband operation. (more…)

Sofradir launches the smallest VGA SWIR detector

See Snake SWIR Tecless at SPIE Photonics West | 29 Jan to 1 Feb

Snake SW Tecless
640 x 512 – 15 ?m pitch – InGaAs – The new generation VGA sensor for high performance SWIR applications.

Palaiseau, near Paris, France – Sofradir has announced the launch of Snake SW Tecless, the smallest footprint high-resolution (VGA) shortwave infrared detector (SWIR).

It is designed for use in high-volume industrial, scientific and surveillance applications, such as inspection, sorting, thermography or security monitoring tasks etc.

Snake SW Tecless brings camera makers important cost benefits, whilst offering fast frame rates (300 fps) and an industry-leading signal-to-noise ratio; key factors affecting a camera’s ability to perform at its full capacity.

Snake SW Tecless is the first shortwave infrared detector without a cooler that Sofradir has commercialized. (more…)

Two-Stage, Cooled, Packaged Infrared (IR) Detector

Opto Diode’s New BXT2-17TF 

the BXT2-17TF, a single-channel, infrared (IR) detector with an integrated 4.67 µm optical bandpass silicon filter.CAMARILLO, CA  —  Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, presents the BXT2-17TF, a single-channel, infrared (IR) detector with an integrated 4.67 ?m optical bandpass silicon filter.

The high-performance lead selenide (PbSe) cooled  BXT2-17TF device provides excellent sensitivity for industrial carbon monoxide (CO) detection in harsh environments.

The two-stage, thermoelectrically-cooled, packaged BXT2-17TF device with integrated thermistor joins Opto Diode’s B-Series IR detectors, all of which feature excellent performance and high reliability for long life. (more…)
