NIT introduces NITViewerGIGE and new SDK

NIT GigE Viewer is the new updated software provided with our GigE cameras.

It includes all the necessary tools to discover our cameras and offers a user-friendly interface. However, It is only working on the Windows system.

The main interface is divided into 2 windows: a Camera Stream window where you will have the live output of the camera, and the control interface with the commands and post-processing functions.

Currently, supported cameras are:

COMPUTER CONFIGURATION

This table represents the minimum configuration required for the computer to use NIT Viewer GIGE.

System configurationWindows 7 or higher 32 or 64 bit
ProcessorCore i-5 or superior1.6GHz to 3.3GHz (or superior)
Memory RAM 4 Go or higher

 

New SDK: NIT SDK Python

NIT also provides the SDK in Python.

The NITLibrary is a DLL providing all functions to interface with NIT cameras regardless of the connection type (USB or GigE). It contains functions related to the connection, the parameter settings (pixel clock, exposure time…) to interface our cameras in your projects.

NITViewerGIGE 1.0 and SDK Python are available to download in your account page.

NIT has designed a specific “Soft Trigger” mode for its flagship WiDy SenS VGA InGaAs SWIR GigE Vision camera

NIT has designed a specific “Soft Trigger” mode for its flagship WiDy SenS VGA InGaAs SWIR GigE Vision camera

For high-speed industrial inspection solutions, the processing time is critical to increasing production throughput.

To fulfill the need for a fast and precise process monitoring, NIT has designed a specific “Soft Trigger” mode for its flagship WiDy SenS VGA InGaAs SWIR GigE Vision camera. This mode reduces the latency between the beginning of the exposure time and delivery to the host system of the produced image. Therefore, the inspection system increases the checking rate.

About our semiconductor inspection solution

This ITR mode includes the pixel Non-Uniformity Correction, the bad pixel replacement, and the Histogram equalization. The WiDy SenS GigE camera series provide an 8bit image output with reduced latency. The time between the end of exposure time and sending out the header is < 500µs. Hence, the time between the end of exposure time and sending out of the complete image is less than 5ms.

This option makes the WiDy SenS well adapted to your inspection system.

First Commercially Available InGaAs Sensor with a pitch of 7.5um

NIT introduces the First Commercially Available SWIR InGaAs Sensor @7.5um pitch

New Imaging Technologies (NIT) is pleased to announce its first commercially available SWIR InGaAs component with a pitch of 7.5µm, resulting from several years of R&D developing in-house an innovative hybridization process.

This process, which does not use the classical indium bumps technique, allows manufacturing hybrid sensors with very small pitches with high yield at a reduced cost.

The first available component at 7.5µm pitch is a line array with the following characteristics :

  • Pixel Number:  2048
  • Pitch: 7.5µm
  • Line speed: 60KHz @ full line
  • Well Fill: 25 Ke-
  • Readout Noise: <70e-
  • Dark Current: 8 fA @ 15°C

This component and associated technologies will be presented during the OPTRO 2020 symposium on Thursday, January 30th @ 9h30 :

    A thank-you gift from NIT

    Thank you for your support and encouragement throughout the year. Before ending this successful year 2019, let us send you a wonderful gift.

    PoE is now available on all our WiDy Sens GigE cameras.

    Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and GigE are industrial standards allowing to use only one RJ45 connector to both control and power industrial vision cameras. PoE has been now fully implemented in our family of WiDy Sens GigE cameras, thus greatly simplifying cabling and connecting machine vision cameras to industrial networks, while keeping triggering options for system integration.
    Our GigE SWIR cameras deliver high sensitivity and high dynamic range (120dB) at a frame rate of up to 220 FPS in full VGA mode and are compatible with most third-party image players.

    What to see in 2020!

    HiPe New Year!!!!

    The new SWIR camera family is coming soon. We are eager to tell you more, so stay tuned!
    Keep in touch

    Best wishes and see you in 2020

    We will close on Wednesday, Dec 25th, 2019 and Wednesday, Jan 1st, 2020. (CET)
