PixelCam 4 Band NIR+SWIR

SWIR Camera with NIR+SWIR Channels

The PixelCam 4 band NIR+SWIR multispectral camera, spectral response shown below, has 4 unique bands in a custom “bayer” type filter. Each filter is positioned over a single pixel and uniformly patterned across the array. The camera is uniquely designed to be used for chemical detection, but also can be used for many other applications across multiple industries. From medical to military, this snapshot multispectral imager is a unique tool for researchers and developers. Users can also use a “pre-filter” to further define the bands to utilize the camera with narrower bands. Reach out to our applications engineers for details.  BUY NOW




PixelCam multispectral cameras provide live imaging of 3-9 spectral bands at video rates. Simultaneous multi-channel “snapshot” acquisition delivers rich, real-time data without scene change or pixel shift. Custom dichroic filter arrays are integrated into the focal plane array at wafer-level to create robust linear and area sensors that extract high-contrast spectral information at specific visible and infrared wavelengths. This breakthrough technology enables easy integration into handheld, mobile and aerial cameras – all with the same frame rate, size, weight and power consumption as monochrome cameras.

PixelCam cameras are fabricated to user-defined wavelengths. The unique combination of high-speed, multi-band imaging and small form factor supports a variety of dedicated applications including agriculture, biomedical, machine vision, surveillance, authentication and unmanned systems. Customized OEM multispectral camera modules are engineered from the wafer-level to deliver scalable volume production and easy integration into handheld and portable devices. Standard PixelCam camera modules are available for 4-band and 6-band RGB+NIR and SWIR wavelengths.
