Teledyne has released the MicroCalibir, a new compact, low-power camera platform.
This latest uncooled thermal camera platform features the smallest VGA IR core module on the market, making it ideal for OEM drones, handhelds, helmet-mounted and vehicular integration products.
The development of the small and lightweight MicroCalibir is a result of the latest advances made by Teledyne DALSA’s integration of their in-house 12 μm microbolometer pixel technology with a deep-ADC ROIC circuit. This novel ROIC design results in a 1000°C intra-scene temperature range at a sub-50mK NETD.
Its pocket-sized 21 x 21 mm format offers the latest Size Weight and Power (SWaP) optimization for this type of LWIR imager, with a very high dynamic range.
Furthermore, the cameras can reach very low, sub-30mK, NETD levels by utilizing advanced, user-selectable noise filtering algorithms.
The MicroCalibir platform delivers accurate and high-end thermal capabilities and can be configured by resolution, the field of view, and frame rate, to deliver optimal performance in applications such as UAVs, security and surveillance, outdoor recreation/personal vision systems, firefighting and many more.
MicroCalibir cameras and cores are available in QVGA and VGA resolutions and a variety of lens options. Its modular design allows for different interface options, for today and the future.
The currently available interfaces are LVCMOS, and USB2, a CSI2 version that will follow later in 2021.
