MicroCube640 serie offers high sensitivity in 22 mm cube side, weighing 22 g and consuming 0.82 W, will open the door of numerous applications. The MicroCube VGA (640x480 pixels) format takes benefits of existing Photonis technology, with key functionalities such as shutterless, automated gain control (AGC) and trigger.

This new state-of-the-art camera core enables OEMs to easily and quickly build their thermal systems with improved Detection, Recognition and Identification (DRI) features. Wide range of interfaces have also been taken-into account to cover the main standards that include the standard MIPI CSI-2.
