The FPA0640P15F-17-T1X from Chunghwa Leading Photonics Tech (CLPT) is an InGaAs NIR Image Sensor with a spectral range of 0.9 µm - 1.7 µm. It has a quantum efficiency fill factor (QEFF) above 70 % (at 1 µm - 1.6 µm) and an effective pixel array of 636 (H) x 508 (V). This SWIR sensor uses planar InGaAs PIN sensor technology with pixel operability up to 99%. It has an image size of 9.6 mm x 7.68 mm and a pixel pitch of 15 µm.
The FPA0640P15F-17-T1X has a dark current of up to 20 fA and readout noise floor of less than 35 e-. It has a charge capacity of 0.041 Me- (at high gain, 46.2 µV/e-), 0.118 Me- (at mid gain, 16.2 µV/e-), and 1.380 Me- (at low gain, 1.39 µV/e-). This SWIR sensor has a noise equivalent irradiance of less than 1.8 x 1010 ph#/cm2-s and mean detectivity greater than 3.5 x 1012 cm-&radicHz/W (at 1.55 µm). It has an output swing of 2.25 V and a minimum integration period of less than 1 µs.
The FPA0640P15F-17-T1X has a built-in temperature sensor with single-stage high current thermoelectric cooler. It has 2, 4, or 8 outputs with up to 18 MHz pixel rate and three readout modes: snapshot ITR/IWR & IMRO. This SWIR sensor is available in a 28 -pin metal SDIP package that measures 36.1 mm (L) x 25.4 mm (W) x 7.3 mm (T) and is ideal for near-infrared imaging, covert surveillance, semiconductor/solar panel inspection, medical science & biology, fiber optic telecommunication, see through fog/smoke, ice/slush/moisture mapping, industrial thermal imaging, & astronomy and scientific applications.
