Attollo Engineering Introduces Low Cost Miniature QVGA SWIR Camera


Attollo Engineering, global engineering experts and providers of infrared imaging, lidar / ladar and laser detection solutions, presents a quarter VGA format camera (320 x 256 resolution), based on shortwave infrared technology at the indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs). The Phoenix QVGA SWIR Miniature Camera is available at the industry’s lowest price of $ 4,900 (camera core with parallel output). Featuring the smallest SWIR sensor available, the innovative camera is superior for applications requiring reduced size, weight and power (low SWaP).

The new affordable Phoenix QVGA is specially designed for applications that require system-level cost efficiency, compared to competitive shortwave infrared imagers. The lightweight SWIR camera (just 23g without lens) captures snapshots using a high performance InGaAs detector with an extremely small 5 micron pixel pitch that enables short throw optics.

Other features include a global shutter with integration then read (ITR) capabilities and a minimum integration time of 100ns with user-defined presets and options. The spectral response spans a range of 1.0 µm to 1.65 µm. Camera Link or USB-C outputs and a selection of lenses are also available, at an additional cost.

Attollo Engineering’s new low cost Phoenix QVGA SWIR camera is ideal for use in drones or other small gimbal applications. It is also well suited for laboratory applications, fiber optic alignment tasks, precision agriculture, driver vision enhancement (DVE), microscopy, machine vision and any another SWIR imaging application requiring a small footprint.
