United States : LAUNCH of FLIR Lepton thermal imaging camera CORE.

FLIR Systems, Inc. has released the new FLIR Lepton thermal imaging camera core. Lepton uses innovative technology, high volume manufacturing techniques, and commercial scale to deliver a price point that is an order of magnitude below current thermal camera cores. Lepton is the world's smallest microbolometer-based thermal imaging camera core now available. FLIR will use Lepton in new and existing products across many vertical markets.

A first commercial use of Lepton is in the new FLIR ONE thermal imaging smartphone accessory launched at CES 2014. Lepton has also been designed for easy integration into third party products like smartphones, tablets, diagnostic tools, automobiles, toys, building controls, process equipment, security systems, machine vision systems, and advanced gaming devices. OEMs all over the world can benefit from the fully-exportable Lepton core that makes high-quality, fully-processed thermal images through common standard interfaces.

Lepton uses multiple proprietary technologies, including wafer level detector packaging, wafer level micro-optics, and a custom integrated circuit that supports all camera functions on a single integrated low power chip. These and other innovations are reflected in over 100 new patent filings worldwide related to Lepton technologies, processes, and applications.

The new Lepton core facilitates accurate temperature measurements and is fully compatible with FLIR's patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging technology, or MSX that considerably improves the thermal image fidelity with data from a visible-light sensor.
