Silicon Wafer Inspection With SWIR Cameras
Silicon inspection can be a challenging problem for silicon and semi-conductor manufacturers in terms of pattern alignment, pattern defect inspection and edge position bonding inspection. During the manufacturing process, foreign particles and defects may appear on the top, bottom, inside or in between the wafers. It is important to find the location of these defects. Defects do not initially affect the chips functionality, but they do end up...  Continue Reading..

Validating Thermal Protection Before A Space-Shot Launch
Neil Tewksbury and his team at the University of Southern California Rocket Propulsion Lab want to blast a rocket into space. As part of an unof cial space race among international universities, Tewksbury and his team don’t just want to be the  rst team to successfully launch; they want to reach an altitude of 100 km (330,000 ft) above sea level with a rocket made up completely of components that they manufacture themselves. They only...  Continue Reading..

FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras Monitor Stress Levels Of Helicopter Pilots
Flying a helicopter is a stressful activity. Pilots have a high workload and are constantly under pressure. Italian helicopter manufacturer Leonardo wanted a reliable and objective way to measure the stress that pilots experience, so they would be able to design more functional cockpits and train helicopter pilots more efficiently. The company brought in high-end thermal cameras from FLIR to monitor pilots during flight simulations and to...  Continue Reading..

THERMAL CAMERAS PRODUCTS

The FLIR RS8500 MWIR camera is a high-performance thermal science camera combined with an infrared telescope in a single weatherproof housing for long range tracking and measurement. The imaging system is built around a high-resolution 1280 x 1024 midwave indium antimonide detector that can deliver data at up to 180 frames per second.

The UP19K-15S-H5-D0 is a thermal detector designed for laser power measurement up to 15 W. Its modular concept design increases the power capability with five different cooling modules.

The FLIR A400 and A700 Science kits are designed to offer a streamlined solution for accurate temperature measurements. Each standard kit includes a FLIR A400 or A700 image streaming camera, a 24˚ lens with automatic/remote and manual focusing, as well as FLIR Macro Mode.

The Ninox 1280 offers visible extension from 0.4 µm to 1.7 µm to enable high sensitivity scientific imaging using a 1280 x 1024 InGaAs sensor. With cooling to -15 °C, the camera achieves typical dark current readings of <2,000e/p/s at this temperature, allowing for longer exposure times. The 10 µm x 10 µm pixel pitch enables the highest resolution imaging. The camera will offer ultra-high intra-scene dynamic range of 69 dB enabling simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene.

The Owl 1280 from Raptor Photonics offers visible extension from 0.4 µm to 1.7 µm to enable high sensitivity imaging using a 1280 x 1024 InGaAs sensor from SCD. The 10 µm x 10 µm pixel pitch enables the highest resolution imaging. It will offer less than 50 electrons readout noise (rms) and with a high intra-scene dynamic range of 69 dB, this enables simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene.

The Hawk 252 is a cooled HD ultra-sensitive digital EMCCD camera offering back-illuminated EMCCD technology for enabling ultimate sensitivity imaging (<50μlux). The camera features high QE of greater than 95% at 600 nm, and GEN III image intensifier performance and enhanced blue response from 180 nm for low light UV with visible detection.

Allied Vision’s Goldeye cameras are short-wave infrared cameras (SWIR) featuring InGaAs sensor technology making them sensitive in the SWIR spectrum ranging from 900 nm to 1,700 nm. These cameras are available in the Goldeye G/CL-033 is a TECless InGaAs model and the Goldeye G/CL-008 Cool TEC1.

Allied Vision’s Bonito PRO CoaXPress camera series is equipped with 4 x CXP-6 ports enabling bit rates of 25 Gbit/s over four coaxial cables with a maximum communication distance of 68 meters. The two Bonito PRO series models, the Bonito PRO X-2620 and X-1250, support the latest high-resolution ON Semi PYTHON CMOS sensors with 26.2 Megapixel and 12.5 Megapixel resolutions.
