    MVCam

    This ITAR-free lattice matched InGaAs camera for machine vision and industrial applications provides high resolution 1280x1024 shortwave infrared (SWIR) imagery at high frame rates of 95 frames per second (fps) at 14 bits at full resolution, with higher frame rates for selectable, reduced regions of interest (ROI) possible.  The small 12 μm pixel pitch of the array combined with the high quantum efficiency of lattice matched InGaAs enables impressive imaging in the SWIR and visible wavelength bands.  The standard configuration of the camera stabalizes the image sensor at 20°C using a single stage thermoelectric cooler integrated in a sealed package.  The MVCam has a read noise less than 45 e-, does not have image lag, and is ideal for high speed machine vision and microscopy applications.

    Description

    The MVCam series SWIR and visible camera supports the highest commercially available frame rate at Megapixel resolution with no ITAR restrictions!

    This megapixel InGaAs camera provides 1280x1024 resolution shortwave infrared (SWIR) imagery at up to 95 frames per second (fps), with higher frame rates for user selectable regions of interest (ROI).  With 12 µm pixel pitch, the MVCam InGaAs image sensor yields extremely low dark current and high quantum efficiency providing sensitivity across the SWIR and visible wavelength bands from 0.4 to 1.7 µm.  The standard camera configuration uses a single stage thermoelectric cooler integrated in a sealed package to stabilize the image sensor at 20°C with no moving parts like a cooling fan.

    MVCam’s advanced digital array (PIRT1280A1-12) generates 14-bit digital image data with no image lag and read noise less than 45 e-, which is lower than all other industrial SWIR cameras.  The camera uses medium configuration Camera LinkTM to output the video imagery at the full data rate of 95 fps.  Base Camera LinkTM can also be used at lower frame rates.  Princeton Infrared Technologies’ MVCam is the ideal camera for high resolution machine vision and microscopy applications.

    MVCam Press Release

    Monmouth Junction, NJ – January 9, 2020 - Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc. (PIRT), will premiere the revolutionary, compact MVCam series shortwave-infrared (SWIR) and visible camera that supports the highest commercially-available frame rate at megapixel resolution with no ITAR restrictions. The megapixel indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) camera provides 1280 x 1024 resolution SWIR imagery at up to 95 frames per second (fps), with higher frame rates for user-selectable regions of interest (ROI). At 12 µm pixel pitch, the MVCam InGaAs image sensor yields extremely low dark current and high quantum efficiency, providing sensitivity across the SWIR and visible wavelength bands from 0.4 to 1.7 µm. The standard camera configuration uses a single-stage thermoelectric cooler (with no moving parts), integrated in a sealed package to stabilizethe image sensor at 20°C.

    MVCam’s advanced digital array (PIRT1280A1-12) generates 14-bit digital image data with no image lag and read noise less than 45 e-, which is lower than all other industrial SWIR cameras. The camera uses Medium configuration Camera Link to output the video imagery at the full data rate of 95 fps. Base Camera Link can also be used at lower frame rates. Princeton Infrared Technologies’ MVCam is ideal for high-resolution machine vision and microscopy applications.

    Martin H. Ettenberg, Ph.D., president of Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc., notes, “We are very excited to bring the MVCam to market. With its high frame rate at megapixel resolution and no ITAR restrictions, it is the best imager available for highspeed machine vision and microscopy applications in the SWIR band. Employing our fabless manufacturing model, we can offer these advanced sensors at a fraction of the market price, without compromising image quality, line rate, or pixel resolution.”
