QuazIRTM SI InSb Camera Cores

For scientific, industrial and OEM applications

IRC’s new family of QuazIRTM SI InSb OEM camera cores are among the most advanced cooled OEM sensor packages produced today. Available in either 320 x 256 or 640 x 512 formats, IRC’s QuazIRTM camera cores provide the superior performance of an InSb sensor in a package specifically configured for scientific, industrial and OEM applications.

The QuazIRTM SI cores can be equipped with a choice of fixed optics, and can be adapted to support custom optical designs for integration with spectrometers and other scientific instruments. Flexible digital and analog outputs, low power consumption and unmatched sensitivity result in a high performance infrared imaging solution. IRC’s unique ability to customize the wavelength response of the QuazIRTM SI allows the camera to be used for SWIR, MWIR and broadband imaging applications.
