Round TFT LCD Displays

Data Image (Winter Park, FL) has announced new round TFT LCD color displays in two sizes: 3" and 4.2" in diameter. They can be used as digital avionics, power meters, speedometers, rpm gauges, temperature indicators, strain gauges, volt/current meters or a simple clock. The display can show a single gauge or display multiple parameters. The formats for the displays are 432 × 432 for the 3" and 720 × 720 for the 4.2". Both have a brightness of 1000 nits typical and wide viewing angles thanks to the IPS glass technology used on both versions. Both have wide temperature rating. They are available with or without capacitive touch panels for user interface.

InGaAs Imaging Sensor

New Imaging Technologies (Verrières le Buisson, France) introduces the NSC1401, a new analog wide dynamic range InGaAs sensor series in 320x256 pixels (QVGA). The NSC1401 uses a new generation of ROIC with 320x256 pixels at 25um pitch coupled to an InGaAs retina that operates in WDR mode and global shutter. The spectral response range goes from 900nm to 1700nm. The analog front end is designed to achieve extremely low input noise and ultra-fast response time down to 200ns for applications such as active imaging. The sensor operates both in linear integration mode and in log response. The NSC1401 can operate without TEC within an ambient temperature range from -40°C to 70°C.

Camera to SWIR Imaging

A clip-on system from UTC Aerospace Systems converts a camera to a day/night short wave IR (SWIR) imaging system. The Sensors Unlimited Warrior C2S lightweight, field-ready module and covert laser illuminator locks into the front of a Canon EOS 5D camera (Mark II and Mark III models) to provide operators with SWIR imaging capabilities on the battlefield. The system enables identification quality SWIR imagery, even in total darkness. More detail at http://articles.sae.org/13458.
