InGaAs-Based Ultra-Compact Vis-SWIR Camera
UK-based Raptor Photonics has launched an OEM version of its OWL 1280 with Serial Digital Interface (SDI) connectivity for high sensitivity imaging from 600-1700nm.
The camera produces uncompressed, mono, progressive scan, digital video output to HD-SDI SMPTE-274M 1080p30 standard. SDI connectivity reduces system complexity, maximizes interface bandwidth and expands the usable operational range.
The Owl 1280 is an InGaAs-based camera combining the best resolution of pixels (1280 x 1024) and pixel size (10um pitch) on the market. With less than 50 electrons readout noise, it offers the best Vis-SWIR HD detection limit available. The camera core is ultra-compact, low power (< 8W) and rugged, making it the perfect camera for integration into any electro-optical system.
