Technical Note: Auto Gain Control And Non Uniformity Correction

Source: Raptor Photonics Limited

In SWIR cameras, the InGaAs FPA sensor can be difficult to manufacture so that all pixels are fully functional. As a solution, Raptor Photonics cameras use Non-Uniformity Corrections (NUC), or gain and dark current corrections, in order to obtain the same quality as a single A/D device. In addition, Raptor’s family of SWIR cameras is also capable of continuously performing Auto Gain Control (AGC) on the onboard FPGA. This application note goes into detail about the NUC and AGC features included in Raptor’s new SWIR cameras. Download the full technical note for more information.
