12-Micron Uncooled Thermal Camera Core Captures Images At 60 Hz

Thermal camera core reduces pixel size to 12-microns inspiring new class of infrared imaging systems.

The latest addition to BAE’s MicroIR product family, the TWV640 thermal camera core, sets a new standard in thermal imaging technology by delivering the first commercially available uncooled 12-micron pixel device. Further advancing the technology developed for the 17-micron MIR640 thermal camera core, the 12-micron module allows imaging system manufacturers to reduce lens size and decrease optics costs, without compromising image quality. Capturing images through fog, smoke, dust, and haze at 60 Hz, the camera core includes customizable settings, a software development kit, onboard image storage and display drivers. Its high speed video capture allows users to observe dynamic environments, revealing details that 30 Hz offerings miss, while also eliminating the disorientation that comes from using slower video. Compatible with off-the-shelf lenses from leading optics providers and using standard interface protocols like USB, NTSC and CameraLink, the uncooled TWV640 module is a drop-in 640x480 thermal camera core best suited for thermal vision system applications including day/night security cameras, firefighting vision systems, process monitoring, handheld targeting systems, automotive cameras, and thermography systems.
