NIT starts production of its SWIR SXGA image sensor

NIT is pleased to announce the sampling and production of its latest high definition SWIR image sensor

NSC1901T-SI is the latest generation of NIT SWIR sensor having a pixel resolution of 1280×1024 pixels at a pitch of 10um, with the extraordinary low readout noise performance of typically 25e-, thanks to its innovative input stage and in pixel CDS.

NSC1901T-SI delivers up to 120 frames per second, operates in IWR and ITR mode, and can be combined with ROI readout. This first member of the SXGA family has a linear response only. The dual-mode Linear and Logarithmic response will be available in Q3-2021.

NSC1901T-SI is manufactured using the advanced NH process developed by NIT. This in-house technology allows the production of hybrid components without using the traditional Indium bump technique leading to high yield manufacturing.

NSC1901T-SI will be integrated first into the NIT SenS camera line – the SenS 1280 camera is due to be out in May 2021.

  • Recording of raw and filtered streaming (PTW and AVI formats).
  • Analyzing and profiling tools.

You will soon be able to download our software directly from the Download page (May 2021).

Lytid, NIT and the National French Research Agency have partnered to develop SIRIS the ultimate cooled SWIR camera

Lytid, NIT and the National French Research Agency have partnered to develop SIRIS the ultimate cooled SWIR camera

Lytid has released the SIRIS SWIR camera – a deep cooled SWIR camera based upon a Lin/Log InGaAs sensor from NIT and image processing algorithms from the French Research Agency (CNRS).

SIRIS exhibits the best performance on the market for read-out noise (<10e-) and dynamic range (>120dB) simultaneously, thanks to NIT Lin/Log 1601 SWIR sensor. SIRIS is deep cooled down to 50K with a long-life cryocooler allowing a drastic reduction of dark current. Exposure time over one hour can be easily obtained. Everything is fully integrated into a compact and plug-and-play casing based on Lytid’s advanced photonic system integration.

Moreover, SIRIS incorporates advanced noise reduction algorithms developed by ENS-CNRS, among which non-destructive read-out noise reduction is embedded. The resulting noise performance is drastically reduced and the final readout noise is less than 10e-.

Applications for SIRIS cover high-end imaging such as astronomical research, bio-medical imaging, bioluminescence…

LiSaSWIR is born

NIT announces a brand-new line of SWIR InGaAs camera – LiSaSWIR.

This family features SWIR line-scan array camera. This SWIR camera is optimized for applications requiring short exposure times and high accuracy line rates.

The LiSaSWIR delivers high SWIR image quality whilst maintaining size, cost, and integration advantages in any quality control system. With the short-wave infrared spectrum, getting more invisible data during real-time monitoring is simple.

The first version available is LiSaSWIR 2K –  LiSaSWIR 2048M-STE
The technical specifications are:

    • Pixel Number:  2048*1
    • Pitch: 7.5µm
    • Line speed: 60KHz @ full line
    • Readout Noise: 250e- (HG)
    • Interface: CameraLink
    • GenICam compliant

Partnership on SWIR quantum dot sensors project

Partnership on SWIR quantum dot sensors project

NIT partners with the French National Research Agency on SWIR quantum dot sensors.

NIT and the French National Research Institute at Sorbonne University have entered into a research partnership, with the aim of producing SWIR sensors using HgTe quantum dot materials deposited on read-out circuits (ROIC).

The Institute of Nano Sciences from Sorbonne University is currently researching and producing quantum dot materials of HgTe sensitive in the SWIR to MWIR wavelength range. Preliminary tests of QCD deposition on NIT ROIC’s have shown impressive results. 

This strategy is promising to design low-cost and small pixel pitch focal plane array, as well as to expand the spectral range of the SWIR camera up to 2.5 µm.

This collaborative program is funded by the French National Research Agency

“After 10 years of researching infrared imaging nanocrystal films we have been able to obtain impressive SWIR images when coupled to a NIT ROIC. Through this project, we now enter into a new step of collaboration to bring this proof of concept to a SWIR commercially available camera.

Emmanuel Lhuillier – CNRS researcher and NITQuantum project principal investigator

“This is a major breakthrough in the life of NIT as this partnership will allow us to offer a full line of SWIR sensors and cameras in large volumes and at low price. This technology benefits from the overall imaging sensor market as it shares its common manufacturing platforms. No doubt this novel sensor technology will become the standard in SWIR sensors in 3 to 5 years”

Pierre Potet – CEO, New Imaging Technologies (NIT)

“The project is built upon some impressive preliminary results that demonstrated the feasibility of the technology and its potential to produce low-cost SWIR sensors for numerous applications. The continued partnership between NIT and the Paris Institute of Nanosciences enters now a phase of technological consolidation that will result in a device ready for industrialization.”
