BLACKBIRD 1280, 10μm - SXGA

InSb MWIR 1280x1024, 10μm digital

Description Typical Performance Applications Configurations Downloads

BLACKBIRD SXGA is SCD state-of-the-art MWIR High Definition detector, which integrates SCD newest

technology of InSb10μm pixel. This 1280x1024 FPA is based on SCD's mature InSb technology and includes a digital readout circuit implemented in advanced CMOS process. The FPA overall size is ~70% larger than SCD's PelicanD VGA, 15µm format detector. Nevertheless, it is packaged in the same PelicanD Dewar. The proximity electronic board supports Video Engine capabilities at low power consumption. This yields a very large format detector with outstanding image quality, high frame rate, and compact size.
