Millimeter-wave Camera to be Demo’d
SOMERVILLE, Mass., Oct. 12, 2010 — In collaboration with microcontroller supplier Renesas Technology, Walleye Technologies demonstrated its millimeter wave camera technology at Renesas developers’ conference in Garden Grove, Calif. on Oct. 11, 2010.
Shown to the general public for the first time, the Walleye camera incorporates Renesas’ microcontroller to process the electronic and optical circuitry. The camera is capable of “seeing” into and through solid objects, showing the image on an LCD screen that can be readily displayed, stored, analyzed and transmitted.
It works like a battery-powered digital camera that uses invisible wavelengths to see into and through objects. Combining proprietary optical components with millimeter wave circuitry, it creates images of objects behind opaque materials.
Walleye Technologies develops next generation handheld portable imaging systems capable of “seeing” into and through objects.

- digital camera
- A camera that converts a collected image into pixels that are black or white digital or shades of gray. The digital data may then be manipulated to enhance or otherwise modify the resulting viewed image.
- That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
