Amain Electronics, a firm in Nevada, has developed a line of custom visible-through-Infrared cameras for military, medical and industrial control applications. Available pixel sizes are 5.6 microns and up. Amain's camera technology provides an over-sample A/D converter at each pixel, with monolithic integrated circuitry, no micro-lens, and hybrid infrared photo voltaic or photo conductive, cooled and uncooled InSb, HgCdTe and InGaAs. Amain's 640X480 MWIR camera offers f 2.2 optics, sensitivity of 11 milliKelvin, and 14 bits dynamic range 10E8 well capacity, with multiple IR design capability, 120 kframes, and 50e noise.
