For High Speed, High Resolution Applications
PRINCETON, N.J., July 24, 2007 -- SUI (Sensors Unlimited Inc.) said its newest shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging system based on indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) technology -- the new SU-LDH digital line-scan camera -- is designed for applications including medical research, spectroscopy and machine vision.

SUI-SU-LDHCamera.jpgThe near-infrared (NIR) InGaAs camera increases line rates for 1024 pixels to over 40,000 lines per second, making this linear digital line-scan camera ideal for optical coherence tomography (OCT) and high-data-rate industrial process control, said the company, which is part of Goodrich Corp.

The advanced, high speed, high-resolution SWIR camera is available in a variety of configurations, based on the versatile new LC series of SUI linear arrays. Standard or extended InGaAs wavelength ranges are available from 0.8 to 1.7 µm and 1 to 2.2 µm. Square pixels for machine vision or rectangular pixels for spectroscopy can be selected and configured with optional 256-, 512-, or 1024-pixel arrays on a 25-µm pixel pitch, or alternatively a 50-µm pixel pitch for 256 and 512 arrays, according to the company.

Diverse applications for the SU-LDH camera include biomedical imaging, scientific imaging, agricultural inspection, high-speed spectroscopy, materials classification and sorting, remote ground sensing, telecommunications fiber and waveguide alignment, and the inspection of wood, hot glass and metals processing.

The 14-bit Camera Link-compatible output and control combined with the rugged enclosure ensures low maintenance and easy integration into high performance imaging systems, SUI said. The camera features high sensitivity, room-temperature-stabilized operation and integrate-while-read capability for fast readout speeds with minimal dead time.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
Denoting the use of binary notation; i.e., the representation of data by bits (1 or 0).
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
