Lynred announces the unveiling of 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.
Designed as a ready-to-use product, 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 is particularly suitable for camera makers in industrial, consumer equipment, and safety across a broad range of activities, for example in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for aerial thermal inspection, as its thermal imaging solutions are compact, lightweight, and low power consumption. It provides the calibration, the associated image processing algorithms, and a lens when required.
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). It operates as a shutterless product – providing continuous image viewing – an important function for the leisure, firefighting, and security-surveillance market applications.
In contrast to comparable solutions, ATI320 offers more flexibility in camera designs, since manufacturers can choose and optimize where to place ATI320 within the camera.
