Princeton Infrared Technologies Honored by Vision Systems Design 2016 Innovators Program

• Revolutionary 1280SciCam SWIR scientific camera, with the longest integration times and highest frame rates at megapixel resolution, earns Gold Level award.

Monmouth Junction, NJ - May 9, 2016 - Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc. (PIRT) (www.princetonirtech.com), announced today that its 1280SciCam SWIR scientific camera was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design (VSD) Innovators Awards program with a Gold Level award. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.


The high resolution 1280 x 1024 pixel camera is a ground-breaking imaging system that operates in the SWIR/visible spectrum from 0.4 µm to 1.7µm and delivers the highest, full-frame rate available in a SWIR camera, greater than 95 frames per second. The small 12μm-pitch, low-read noise (<35e-), and 14-bit ADC makes the new camera ideal for machine vision applications where sensitivity and high resolution in the SWIR band is critical. Three temperature setpoints of 25°C, 0°C, or -50°C using TECs also support long integration times >5 minutes while maintaining low noise.

The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:
• Originality
• Innovation
• Impact on Designers, Systems Integrators, End Users
• Fulfilling a need in the market that hasn't been addressed
• Leveraging a novel technology

According to Martin H. Ettenberg, Ph.D. and CEO of Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc., "We are delighted and honored to receive this prestigious VSD Innovators Award.
We designed and built the new SWIR1280SciCam to fill a need in the scientific and machine vision markets for a 1.3 megapixel resolution camera that had low noise and high frame rates without image lag, while also allowing long integration times for low- signal-level-imaging applications in semiconductor inspection, fluorescence in biological samples, and moisture detection in processing."
