    BLACKBIRD 1280 Imager

    Blackbird SXGA Video Core is SCD state-of-the-art MWIR High Definition detector, which integrates

    SCD newest technology of 10μm pixel and Video processing capabilities. This 1280×1024 FPA is based

    on SCD’s mature InSb / XBn 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 dimensions of Pelican D Dewar. The proximity electronic board

    supports Video processing capabilities at low power consumption. This yields a large format detector

    with outstanding image quality, high frame rate, and compact size.
