ULIS, a renowned manufacturer of innovative thermal sensors, has launched Atto320. It’s the first model in the lineup of 12-micron, stand-alone, image sensors. The 12-micron pixel pitch is the new industry standard for thermal image sensors for market applications requiring low cost and size of the camera. The key sectors include outdoor leisure/observation, surveillance, and thermography.
The Atto320 bring the advantage of sharply focused images, compact size, and long-battery life to handheld-cameras. Besides, it has system integrators with ultimate flexibility in configuring designs that meet their specific performance needs, offering true product differentiation to the end-users.

It’s a 320 x 240 thermal image sensor designed with the company’s unique 12-micron technology for sensor miniaturization. It offers ease-of use with simple calibration and has a high frame rate of 60 Hz that helps in generating high quality moving images. This would allow end users to view fast moving objects or scenes at distances of several hundred meters easily. Furthermore, the sensor consumes less than 220 mW at 60 Hz allowing extended autonomy of more than 10 hours for the handheld systems.
Moving on, the Atto320 makes use of the new 12-micron technology that can reduce the size of its optics by as much as 50%, equating to a cost reduction of up to 20%. It’s even compatible with the company’s 17-micron GEN2 imaging sensor line thus eliminating the need for users to switch to the 12-micron technology. Other key features include: high uniformity and stability, easy implementation, low power consumption, state-of- the-art performance in temperature difference detection a(60 mK thermal sensitivity).
