C-RED 3 ultrafast SWAP optimised InGaAs SWIR cameras

The C-RED 3 by First Light Imaging, available from Scitech, is the
fastest VGA uncooled camera in the market for short wave infrared (SWIR)
imaging. Designed for short exposure time applications, the camera is optimised
for low SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) and low cost.

The camera is based on a TECless InGaAs sensor sensitive from 0.9 to 1.7
µm with more than 80% QE typical response. The C-RED 3 SWIR camera captures
full frame images at 600 FPS. With <50 electron readout noise, the camera is
ideal for applications such as semiconductor inspection, quality and production
control, waste sorting, non-destructive testing, environmental monitoring, welding,
laser alignment and UAV and security surveillance.

C-RED 3 SWIR camera incorporates a TECless 640 x 512 InGaAs PIN photodiode
detector with 15 μm pixel pitch for high resolution imaging. This detector
embeds an electronic shutter with integration pulses shorter than 1 μs. C-RED 3
supports a unique high dynamic range mode (HDR) providing 93dB dynamic range
and true 16 bits linear response, which simultaneously offers a low noise below
50 electrons and a full well capacity of more than 1 million electrons. The
camera can also work in AGC mode (automatic gain control) with standard dynamic

Operating from 0.9 to 1.7 µm, C-RED 3 SWIR cameras are capable of
windowing and multiple on-board functionalities. The software allows for real
time applications, and the interface is CameraLink full or USB3.The software
allows real-time applications and is perfect for stable temperature
environments. The C-RED 3 SWIR camera also exists in OEM module for easy
integration in larger systems.
