The Oxygen RD0092 digital readout IC (DROIC) is now available as a quarter-wafer, allowing developers to acquire a reduced minimum order quantity of ICs at lower-cost for evaluation and prototyping.
Each fully tested quarter wafer is supplied with a minimum number of guaranteed good die. A full data pack that includes a GUI-based clickable wafer map is also furnished. The wafer map provides color-coded grade information for each die along with a top-level summary (die yield, results of each individual test, and final grade). Clicking any die on the map displays a detailed test summary plot that contains test images, histograms for the test images, pixelwise differences used to reject bad pixels with pass/fail thresholds indicated, bad pixel map image and a bar graph showing the measured supply currents in the screen test state.
To further simplify the evaluation and development experience using the Oxygen RD0092, Senseeker offers an evaluation kit that can be used for cooled or uncooled lab testing. The evaluation kit comes complete with software and is easily connected to a host PC with a frame grabber card for image display. Also included are a chip-on-board Oxygen RD0092 DROIC for uncooled evaluation and an adapter board that interfaces to a Dewar for cooled evaluation.
The Oxygen RD0092 is the world’s first 8-µm-pitch dual-band digital readout IC (DROIC). It supports a 1280×720 frame size at over 500 fps and dual-polarity inputs to provide compatibility with all industry-standard direct-injection detector materials. The solution was designed to optimize infrared imaging system performance through state-of-the-art integrated features and multiple operating modes that offer flexibility for a wide range of high-performance application requirements.
Senseeker’s Oxygen RD0092 product is a candidate for focal plane array developers who want to shorten their development process with a high-performance DROIC that is available off-the-shelf, or customers who want to hybridize new photodetectors and evaluate the results quickly and easily.
In infrared search and track systems, the global shutter mode and windowing capability enables an unlimited number of 32×32 windows at over 8,000 fps to detect and track multiple objects in real-time. For situation awareness applications where threat detection is critical, High Dynamic Range Dual Integration mode can be used to expand the possible dynamic range over 110 dB. This mode runs two integration times simultaneously on a checkerboard pattern of pixels to optimize range, resolution and detection sensitivity of the system.
