The NSC1401 launched by New Imaging Technologies use a new generation of ROIC with a 320x256 pixels at 25um pitch coupled to an InGaAs retina that operates in WDR mode and global shutter. The spectral response range from 900nm to 1700nm. The analog front end is designed to achieve extremely low input noise and ultra-fast response time down to 200ns for applications such as active imaging. The sensor operates both in linear integration mode and in log response.
This latest SWIR QVGA sensor running up to 300 fps full frame brings also full digital control of image parameters such as software selectable regions of interest (ROI), selectable integration modes (IWR & ITR). The NSC1401 can operate without TEC within an ambient temperature range from -40°C to 70°C. A TEC version will also soon be available from NIT for applications that require a very stable radiometric signal output, such as thermography or laser beam characterization.
The NSC1401 is available for sale in camera (WiDy SWIR compact series), as module which include a complete driving electronic or as a packaged sensor.
