SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Senseeker Engineering Inc. in Santa Barbara, Calif., is introducing the Neon RD0033 advanced digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC) for low-light applications in high-operating temperatures.
The Neon RD0033 DROIC offers low-noise performance, triple-gain modes, and a 10-micron pitch pixel with a capacitive transimpedance amplifier (CTIA) front-end circuit. It is for shortwave infrared (SWIR) and low-current detector technologies such as quantum dots-based detectors.
The Neon RD0033 has a 640-by-512-pixel format and a frame rate of 700 frames per second. The chip has low noise of 15 electrons at room temperature in high-gain. A DROIC integrated circuit reads detectors of a particular type -- in this case for electro-optical applications.
The RD0033 digital readout IC is a global shutter chip with internal synchronous integration control modes and external asynchronous integration control and can be used for range-gating applications.
It contains on-chip and off-chip correlated double-sampling modes, and operates in integrate-then-read and integrate-while-read modes. The RD0033 also offers sample-up-the-ramp, on-chip temperature monitoring, and programmable high-speed windows to observe and track targets at thousands of frames per second.
The Neon RD0033 has support from an electronics kit and a thermoelectric cooler sensor test unit that together enable testing and evaluation of Neon-based focal plane arrays. For more information contact Senseeker Engineering online at www.senseeker.com.
