Thermal Cores

Our uncooled microbolometer based thermal camera cores enable designers of thermal imaging solutions for commercial, civil and military markets who seek class leading performance at an affordable price. Our thermal sensors enable the capture of images through fog, smoke, dust, and haze for applications including security cameras, firefighting, process monitoring, automotive safety, and thermography.  We’ve set a new standard in thermal imaging technology by delivering the first commercially available uncooled 12-micron pixel devices. The 12-micron modules allow imaging system manufacturers to reduce lens size and decrease optics costs, without compromising image quality.
