InGaAs photodetectors are based on the band-to-band absorption mechanism, allowing detection in the SWIR spectrum [0.9µm; 1.7µm] with an optional visible extension down to 0.4µm.
The heterostructure, grown lattice-matched on InP substrates (4’’) is specially designed to optimize the component performances: dark current, quantum efficiency and modulation transfer function.
The Snake Module is a very low power and ultra compact SWIR VGA module. This "plug and play" solution is based of Sofradir new generation Snake InGaAs FPA assembly. The Snake Module provides simplified interfaces for an easy and quick integration in your SWiR system, by managing all features of the proxy board and providing data processing capabilities. The Snake Module is well adapted to a large range of applications such as surveillance, airborne gimbals and various scientific and machine vision applications.
