French company Photonis announced the broadening of MicroCube range with MIPI-CS2 variant, the smallest European VGA resolution uncooled LWIR camera to be showcased at SPIE Photonics West 2023.

The integration requirements for UAV payloads and handheld devices struggle with trade-off between power consumption, size, image quality and cost. MicroCube 640E solves the equation, offering all at once: Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) and image performance in VGA format at an affordable price. This new technological platform allows integrators to easily and quickly design their infra-red system taking benefit of different type of interfaces. MicroCube 640E series integrates a native interface variant with well-known data format, and also exist as MIPI-CSI2 variant and USB-UVC one.

As MIPI is the most commonly used interface in high performance applications for point-to-point image and video transmission, Photonis is pleased to propose to its customers a new feature. It will bring added value to their systems by integrating enhanced algorithm capabilities.

“MIPI-CSI interface enables smooth integration of electro-optic systems at reasonable cost. But it is also a gateway to many other video interfaces thanks to the large offer of processing platforms”, comments Christophe Robinet, Product Marketing Manager at Photonis.

The freedom of design (flex or board-to-board) and the low power are of special interest for the market segments Photonis already serve: UAVs, payloads and handheld devices as well as embedded multi-camera imaging systems. All are fully made in Europe, which prevents our customers from supply chain shortages and regulation changes, while strengthening technological sovereignty.
