Diffraction Limited offers cooled scientific-grade cameras for a wide variety of OEM applications.
We can customize our off-the-shelf products to your specific needs, including custom packaging, mounting, firmware, drivers, and more.
In some cases a fully bespoke solution is required. This may be due to packaging limitations, choice of sensor technology, instrument integration, optical design, or other requirements. We typically base our custom designs on one of our existing SBIG product platforms, so we can quickly create new models to meet your technical requirements, project schedule, and cost targets.
Our customer designed an instrument for detecting trace materials in a sample, by illuminating the target with brief flashes of UV illumination. We designed a custom low-noise cooled camera (pictured above) that could efficiently integrate and detect these extremely faint signals. The instrument is controlled by a custom computer module that has no operating system and a custom hardware interface. By leveraging our existing Aluma® camera platform, we were able to quickly design and fabricate fully functional prototype cameras that met all project requirements – including cost targets. This product is now in full production.
Diffraction Limited has in-house capabilities for all aspects of high performance camera design. This includes mechanical design, thermal design and simulation, analog and digital electronics, FPGA development, embedded software, drivers, and application software.
No matter whether you need a full-custom design, a customized off-the-shelf design, or purchase a model off the shelf, we can help you get to production as quickly and smoothly as possible. Our team of engineers and programmers will assist you with all aspects of your project including mechanical, electronic, and software integration tasks.
Our software drivers are compatible with Windows, Linux, and OS-X. Labview support is available.
