    This non-ITAR reduced weight (3000g) lattice matched, InGaAs camera allows for high resolution SWIR imaging 1280x1024 at high frame rates up to 95 frames per second (fps) at full frame size or long integration times of more than 2 minutes. This fine pitch array,12 μm  pixels, combined with the high quantum efficiency of the lattice matched InGaAs enables impressive performance with no image lag in the SWIR and visible spectral bands from 0.4 μm to 1.7 μm.  The camera has the capability of three temperature setpoints, -20°C, -40°C (fan cooling) or -60°C (water cooled), using a 3 stage TEC integrated in a vacuum package. This advance digital array (PIRT1280A1-12) on board is a product of Princeton Infrared's decades of experience in InGaAs processing.  The photoresponse uniformity and low dark current over the 1.3 MegaPixel FPA is truly unique.  SciCam provides a 14 bit digital output with low read noise of <45e-; lower than any other cooled SWIR scientific imager on the market.  Medium based Camera Link outputs the fast full frame rate and is compatible with several preferred production frame grabbers.  Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc. offers this powerful camera system with software that allows for camera control and image capture.  PIRT's 2nd Generation 1280SciCam is an excellent choice for high speed machine vision and life science applications, as well as astronomical and low signal photon emission systems.  Standard lens adapters are available for easy microscope and telescope integration.
