(http://rbi.ims.ca/4917-549). Instead of a single sensor, this thermal, infrared imaging camera employs an array of sensors called a Thermophile Focal Array (TPFA). The technique enables high resolution in a power-efficient, smaller and lighter camera for portable applications. After the sensors convert the energy to electrical signals, Analog Devices' Blackfin ADSP-BF533 processor interprets the signals and assigns color scales for a visual indication of temperature. The choice of the ADSP-BF533 processor was based on the unit's industry-standard interfaces with a high-performance (greater than 600 MHz) signal-processing core.
