SWaP+C features

Innovative SWIR technology in a compact camera design at an affordable price

Our compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications.  Thereby, the industrial grade Alvium SWIR cameras and drivers provide a plug & play feeling whenever setting up your system solution. 

Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates at small Size, light Weight, and low Power consumption, including low Cost (SWaP+C). This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical. 


Reduce your overall system costs

Imaging in the visible and SWIR spectrum with a single camera

Alvium SWIR cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows you to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with  a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs!

Thanks to the innovative InGaAs sensor architecture, the SenSWIR sensors offer a quantum leap in terms of pixel size (5 µm) and image homogeneity. In combination with a high-precision sensor alignment at production time, you can realize inspection systems supporting high requirements for image quality, resolution, and precision.
