SNAKE SW detectors are  very low noise and high speed InGaAs sensors designed for the most demanding SWIR applications from 0.9 to 1.7 μm.

The 640 x 512 VGA format detectors with 15-micron pixels are available in two versions, the SNAKE SW, a hermetically sealed metal package which includes an integral TEC (thermo-electric cooler), or the SNAKE SW TECless, a hermetically sealed ceramic package without a TE Cooler. Both detectors are designed for wavelengths ranging from 0.9µm to 1.7 µm and boast low noise, fast frame rates up to 300Hz, excellent image quality and a pixel operability of >99.9%. 

The SWIR detectors are compact, utilize very little power and are cost effective. In particular, the SNAKE SW Tecless has a footprint of only 0.65” x 0.65” and consumes <160mW in 2 output mode.

SNAKE SWs are well-adapted to a large range of applications such as space/LEO communications, (laser beam profiling),  surveillance (detection through fog and smoke),  hyperspectral imaging and industrial process inspection (agriculture, pharmaceutical, semiconductor,) and scientific R&D.  

Lynred InGaAs technology provides outstanding performances in terms of sensitivity, noise, dark current and operability.
