Expanding upon the storied Fairchild Imaging legacy, we offer a wide range of imaging devices that provide our customers with top performance and key features for the most demanding applications. Our sensors enable imaging throughout the full spectrum from X-ray and visible wavelengths, to near infrared (NIR) and infrared (IR), all with excellent quantum efficiency. Our portfolio is suitable for a variety of applications, all of which have the common need for uncompromised image quality to enable highly differentiated high-performance cameras.
Key Sensor Systems Products
As a market leader in thermal imaging sensors, BAE Systems delivers game-changing imaging technology for extreme environments.
Medical & Dental X-ray
Our X-ray sensors deliver superior image quality enabled by high signal response and low noise.
Inventors of the breakthrough scientific CMOS (sCMOS) technology, we continue to push the limits of image sensor performance.
Our sensors target the most demanding imaging applications, and our R&D efforts are focused on developing the technologies that are continually advancing the state of the art in these high-performance cameras.
No one makes sensors with lower read noise. Our sub-electron read noise sensors are pushing the limits of imaging in the lowest light conditions. Through a combination of advanced pixel engineering and innovative analog circuit design techniques, we are now in the realm of being able to detect single photons.
A patented dual-gain architecture leverages the ultra-low read noise to capture low light levels (high-gain), while simultaneously capturing highlights (low-gain) in a large, full-well capacity pixel. The result is a market-leading sensor native dynamic range. This native high dynamic range (HDR) starting point can be extended further with our patented Ultra Dynamic Range (UDR) technique. UDR can extend dynamic range up to 120 dB with a single exposure while mitigating artifacts due to motion and LED flicker.
Our sensors are architected to achieve lightning speeds concurrently with high-resolution output. Amazingly, the high speed and high resolution are accomplished without compromising the sensors low read noise and high dynamic range.
We offer sensors capable of detection across a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Our market-pioneering sCMOS sensors detect visible light with high quantum efficiency (QE), and recently achieved significant increases in near-infrared QE. At even longer wavelengths, we are a market leader in microbolometer detectors and associated thermal camera cores. We also have years of deep experience in developing and delivering X-ray sensors.
