Poised for volume OEM apps, FLIR Systems’ latest thermal imaging core, dubbed Muon, is designed for integrating uncooled FPAs into camera designs. The core is described as a thermal subassembly that generates calibrated CMOS video out using industry-standard interfaces. It is calibrated for TEC-less operation, eliminating the need to develop elaborate factory calibration equipment or processes. Muon is a thermal engine operating on standard imaging device power and communication protocols. It is based on the company’s 17µ pitch Vandium Oxide (VOx) 640x512 or 336x256 FPAs, offers frame rates from 9 Hz to 60Hz, and has a form factor of 22 mm x 22 mm x 6 mm with a mass of less than 5g. Depending on configuration, power consumption is less than 300 mW. To learn more, visit http://www.flir.com/cvs/cores/view/?id=64979
