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 :
