PixelCam - Multispectral Cameras
PixelCam multispectral cameras provide live imaging of 3-9 spectral bands at video rates. Simultaneous multi-channel “snapshot” acquisition delivers rich real-time data without scene change or pixel shift. Custom dichroic filter arrays are integrated into the focal plane array at wafer-level to create robust linear and area sensors that extract high-contrast spectral information at specific visible and infrared wavelengths. This breakthrough technology enables easy integration into handheld, mobile and aerial cameras – all with the same frame rate, size, weight, and power consumption as monochrome cameras.
PixelCam cameras are fabricated to user-defined wavelengths. The unique combination of high-speed multi-band imaging and small form factor supports a variety of dedicated applications including agriculture, biomedical, machine vision, surveillance & authentication, and unmanned systems. Customized OEM multispectral camera modules are engineered from the wafer-level to deliver scalable volume production and easy integration into handheld and portable devices. Standard PixelCam camera modules are available for 3- and 4-band SWIR (Short Wave Infrared), delivering intuitive colorized infrared imaging.
Snapshot multi-band acquisition
True simultaneous “snapshot” capture of spectral bands lets you extract real-time data without scene change or pixel shift.
Dedicated application-specific imager
Select the exact bands you want to see (and filter the rest) – extracting high-contrast spectral information in visible wavelengths and beyond.
Custom pixel-level filter array
At the heart of each PixelCam is a dichroic filter array integrated into the image sensor – using exclusive pixel-level filters to create a custom mosaic or Bayer filter fit to your application.
Small footprint & device integration
Form factor, frame rates, operating temperature, and power requirements are unchanged by PixelCam’s passive spectral filtering – enabling easy integration into handheld, mobile and aerial devices.[/pane].
