Low Cost HD SWIR Sensor for Mass-Market Applications
While SWIR cameras have been solving complex vision challenges by utilizing an exotic compound of materials (InGaAs), they have not been available until recently for mass-market applications. TriEye now introduces a CMOS-based HD SWIR sensor that is finally enabling SWIR to enter mainstream usage.
Sensor Spectrum: 0.4µm-1.6µm
Shutter Mode: Global/Rolling
Maximum speed: 120fps (full frame)
InGaAs-based sensors involve multiple complex steps, which reduce the yield and make the technology prohibitively expensive. Therefore, it mainly services niche industries who can afford the high cost and require low volume like the science, aerospace, and defence industries. Due to its high price and the limited capability to scale the manufacturing, InGaAs-based technology is not adopted by mass-market applications which can highly benefit from SWIR capabilities, such as seeing in adverse conditions or remote material sensing.
