SWIR LineCam InGaAs linescan camera LineCam12 SWIR LineCam12 OEM SWIR sensor

    LineCam12

    The LineCam12 is a digital linescan camera for imaging in the SWIR and visible bands (0.4-1.7μm).  It has two digital output formats USB3 Vision and Camera link. The device can even be powered by USB3 in most applications.  The LineCam12 utilize a 1024x1 state of the art InGaAs linear array imager on 12.5μm pitch that was built for both machine vision and spectroscopy.

    The LineCam12 also is available in an OEM version stripped of its housing.  This camera can be customized to fit in various user systems.  We can also add custom filters to the array.

      Description

      The LineCAM12 is an advanced linescan camera with 14 bit digital data at 37klines/s on USB3 or Camera Link outputs.  The camera currently comes in two varieties: 250um tall pixels for spectroscopy and 12.5um square pixels for machine vision applications.  The camera has incredible versatility enabling full wells from 75ke- to 100Me- with 128 steps of variation as well as integration times from 10ms to 150s.  On chip optical pixel binning (where every other detector is disconnected from the ROIC thus signal is captured by neighboring pixels) is available by command to trade spectral resolution for increased signal level.  Pixel skipping or binning is also available allowing for 48klines/s at 512 resolution in the same camera platform, activated by a simple command structure.  The TEC stabilized camera has 31 non-uniformity correction (NUC) tables with 15 factory set and 16 user defined tables to enable flexibility for the given environment.

      This lattice matched InGaAs array is backside illuminated enabling detection from 0.4 to 1.7um with no bond pads or wires in the way of your signal and minimize stray reflections found in front side illuminated arrays with many wire bonds near the active imaging area.  The array can be customized to allow optical filters to be placed on the active detector area something that is nearly impossible in front side illuminated devices.  We show this device working with Metaphase's light sources,
