Pico384 Gen2, one of the first thermal image sensor designed in accordance with JEDEC standards for surface mount technology (SMT) assembly, has been introduced by Ulis, a manufacturer of thermal image sensors for commercial and military applications.
Ulis’ sensors are more compatible with standard industrial integration and handling processes for high volume production, such as robotic pick-and-place and oven reflow. As a surface mount device (SMD), Pico384 Gen2 enables thermal camera makers to further automate their assembly lines, lower the cost of integration and boost production.
Pico384 Gen2 is suitable for outdoor leisure applications, such as nature observation, wildlife watching, tracking game, camping and hiking. With QVGA resolution (384 x 288 pixels) and high image quality, users of thermal equipment designed with Pico384 Gen2 will be able to observe animals in complete darkness from a distance of several hundred metres.
Pico384 Gen2 offers low power consumption (<220mW with integrated ADC and DACs) for improved battery life. This makes the Pico384 Gen2 suitable for other portable applications like thermography, firefighting and surveillance.
