Emberion’s analog VIS-SWIR VGA image sensor consists of 640 × 512 photodetectors elements with a 20 µm pixel pitch. The spectral response range is wide (400 – 2000 nm) and each detector element extends from visible light into short-wave infrared region.

The image sensor comprises a detector array monolithically built on a tailor-made CMOS readout integrated circuit (ROIC). This manufacturing approach allows both cost-competitive component pricing and convenient integration of the sensor component into imaging systems such as camera cores. The ROIC provides an analog multiplexed image data output and enables global electronic shutter.

VIS-SWIR VGA image sensor has various potential applications in the fields of hyperspectral imaging and night and machine vision.
