Tachyon data sheet - .PDF file.

New Infrared Technologies’ new Tachyon range of medium-wave infrared imaging detectors and plug-and-play imaging modules — available from Pacer — is suitable for industrial applications including civilian and military infrared sensing systems.

The focal plane arrays (FPAs) allow image acquisition frame rates of 2kHz for the new larger-resolution 80 x 80-pixel-format device and 10kHz for the 32 x 32-pixel version.

The FPA sensors are built directly on top of the Si-CMOS readout circuitry (ROIC) so 8in (20cm) substrates can be used, reducing the cost per device.

Acquisition speeds are very high as most of the processing is made at pixel level, and all pixels are read simultaneously (snapshot acquisition).
