Thermoteknix's MicroCAM thermal imager uses less than 1 W power
Thermoteknix's 640 × 480-pixel resolution MicroCAM thermal imaging core with 17-μm pixel pitch draws less than 1 W of power and weighs 44 g (0.55 oz).
The 640 × 480-pixel resolution MicroCAM thermal imaging core with 17-μm pixel pitch draws less than 1 W of power and weighs 44 g (0.55 oz), making it suitable for low-weight, low-power-consumption applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Two models are available: one with a shutter (requiring a nonuniformity correction, NUC), and another version that employs XTi shutterless technology, which allows for a camera containing no moving parts, that is completely silent in operation, and requires no NUC for uninterrupted viewing.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
New 640x480 17micron MicroCAM
Thermoteknix Systems Ltd launch new MicroCAM 640x480 resolution camera core with 17micron pitch at SPIE Defense, Security & Sensing 2011...
Thermoteknix unveiled their new 640x480 resolution MicroCAM thermal imaging core with 17micron pixel pitch at the SPIE Defense & Security Symposium in Orlando, Florida last week. Class-leading MicroCAM 640 draws <1.0W of power and weighs just 44g/1.55oz making it ideal for all low weight, low power consumption applications such as UAV’s.
Two models of the new high resolution core are available – one with a shutter (requiring a NUC/Non Uniformity Correction) and another version which utilises Thermoteknix’ patented XTi ® Shutterless Technology. This technology allows for a camera containing no moving parts which is completely silent in operation and requires no NUC, meaning there is no interruption to viewing.
MicroCAM is Thermoteknix’ range of ultra low-powered miniature thermal camera cores which also include 384x288 resolution models and which are incorporated in a number of Thermoteknix products including Clip On Thermal Imagers (ClipIR), handheld binocular devices (TiCAM) and a wealth of OEM products worldwide.
