This high-speed indium gallium arsenide camera is designed for applications including machine vision, pulsed laser beam profiling, high-speed motion analysis and other image-tracking tasks. Its spectral response from 900-1,700 nm offers high speed and regions of interest. It captures images at 109 frames per second on a 640 x 512-pixel focal plane array on a 25-micron pitch, and can image smaller regions at over 15,000 frames per second with 100 percent fill factor. It has a single 14-bit digital Camera LinkŪ-compatible output and a simultaneous analog video NTSC output. Serial commands control ROI window size, position and integration time. It also has user-programmable exposure times, anti-blooming protection, non-uniformity corrections and external triggering of full-frame or ROI acquisition.
