Ulis has launched a long-wave 640 x 480-pixel uncooled 17-µm-format infrared detector to upgrade the image quality of the infrared cameras used in surveillance, enhanced night driving and thermography applications, such as detecting heat loss in buildings. Measuring 24 x 24 mm and weighing 10 g, it consumes <0.160 W of power. Operating temperature range is from —40 to 85 °C, typical array operability is >99.9%, typical signal response is >7 mV/K, and standard deviation is ≤1.5%. Spectral response is from 8 to 14 µm, area fill factor is 70%, and thermal time constant is <10 ms. The focal plane array is made of resistive amorphous silicon and features a CMOS multiplexer integrated circuit with ripple imaging operation.
