Ann Arbor Sensor Systems has developed a new ultra low-cost uncooled thermopile array.
A recent press release by the Malaysian company MEMS Technology Bhd has caused a flurry of activity recently in the world of infrared. The company had claimed that it had signed a multi-year contract with Bullard for infrared FPAs to be used in a firefighting camera to be introduced in September.
Ann Arbor Sensor Systems has used an old technology to make very low cost uncooled cameras (less than $5K). The company’s AXT100 Thermal Imaging Camera makes use of 32 x 31 thermopile arrays that the company designed and are manufactured for it by MEMSTech.
