SWIR imaging is now very popular for industrial usage but still many applications suffer from the high cost of current SWIR cameras, where the required budget is not aligned with the expected return of investment. This is the case for many industries where SWIR imaging can bring extremely high value such as food, vegetables, and fruit inspection, molded glass manufacturing, waste sorting… Installing several SWIR cameras on a production line cannot be made only because of ROI on the purchase budget.

For these reasons, NIT has designed a low price point SWIR camera, the WiDy SenS 320, by first redesigning completely the InGaAs focal plane array and making it cost-optimized by leveraging NIT’s innovative high yield hybridization technique and ready for volume production. Then the camera itself has been redesigned with cost-effective components without sacrificing the overall performance.
The end result is the WiDy SenS 320, which integrates our latest dual-mode NSC 2001 InGaAs focal plane array, QVGA resolution, delivering up to 1K fps full-frame, available both with USB3 and CamLink video output. The high dynamic range of more than 120dB with the logarithmic response is also available and can be switched to the linear mode by software to get a high sensitive SWIR camera.
