New Digital Readout IC Developed for SWIR Solutions

July 10, 2023
The global shutter chip has been designed for use in high-operating temperature conditions.

Senseeker Engineering has announced the availability of the Neon RD0033, a low-noise advanced digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC) with a 10 µm pixel pitch, which was developed for low-light applications such as short-wave infrared (SWIR) technologies. The Neon RD0033 is a global shutter chip with 640 x 512 resolution and a frame rate of 700 fps. It features triple-gain modes with programmable well capacities of 22 ke-, 160 ke- and 1.1 Me-. The chip boasts a read noise of 15 electrons at room temperature in high gain. The RD0033 has both internal synchronous integration control modes and external asynchronous integration control and can be used for range-gating applications. Currently in production, the Neon RD0033 is supported by an electronics kit and a thermoelectric cooler sensor test unit that, together, enable testing and evaluation of Neon-based focal plane arrays.
