Ulis has introduced 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 and operates at a temperature range 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, featuring a CMOS multiplexer integrated circuit with ripple imaging operation, is made of resistive amorphous silicon.
