ALANews: Lynred unveils the ATI320, its first advanced thermal imager with embedded image signal processing. The product’s embedded features, with a lens available as an option, aim at saving camera makers time and effort in integrating thermal imaging during the development and manufacturing process, enabling them to speed products to market.

ATI320 simplifies the calibration process during camera assembly, relieving manufacturers from performing complex steps. A key motivation underpinning the product’s advanced design is in eliminating tricky integration steps, in order to extend access to infrared technology for newer thermal image market entrants.

 “ATI320 marks a milestone in Lynred’s strategic development towards bringing more ambitious and innovative value-added propositions to key markets,” said Jean-Yves Dussaud, CMO at Lynred. ”This Advanced Thermal Imager is the culmination of our teams’ latest know-how and dexterity in developing image processing solutions, electronics and software for our microbolometer technology, in which we have a 20-year legacy.

ATI320 (16x16mm) is the most compact QVGA (320×240 pixels) resolution thermal imager available and comes with ruggedized housing. It is available in two models: ATI320L (with lens) and ATI320S (without lens).

The key spec:
  • Resolution: 320×240; 12µm pixel pitch
  • NETD (Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference): f/1, 300 K scene, 20°C ambient for ATI320S version: <60mK
  • Scene dynamic >100°C
  • Operating T°C range: -40°C; +85°C
  • Full digital product with power consumption <400mW, when an image signal processing is fully activated
  • Frame rate: 60Hz
  • Standards compliance: Mil-Std-810/883
  • Weight: <3g for ATI320S version; <7g for ATI320L version
