XBN DDCE based on 1280x1024, 15µm pitch "Hercules" FPA

Description Typical Performance Applications Configurations Downloads

HERCULES is the ultimate Mega-Pixel IR detector, and now it's available at high operating temperature.

HOT Hercules is based on SCD’s latest technology FPA which enables a very high FPA operating temperature of 150K without compromising on detector performance. The product developed in response to the market demand for reduced SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) IR detectors. This technology enables the detector to reach high MTBF (>20,000hr).

This is achieved by the combination of the most advanced IR detectors manufacturing technologies available today:

  • 15 µm pitch XBn process
  • 0.18 µm Si-CMOS ROIC Process
  • Compact, Stiff Dewar
  • Compact and light Integral rotary Stirling cooler
