Flir Systems recently announced that it has produced its one millionth Lepton microcamera core. This is the world’s smallest and most widely deployed microbolometer thermal imaging camera module. Additionally, the company announced it is making its highest resolution camera, Lepton 3, available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for product integration. Launched in 2014, Lepton became the industry’s first longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera small enough for smartphone integration, at a price point approximately ten times less expensive than previous traditional thermal camera modules. Lepton features many proprietary technologies, including wafer-level detector packaging, wafer-scale micro-optics, a custom application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), and a low-cost, easy-to-integrate camera package. Since its launch, Lepton has been integrated into more than 20 products, including multiple generations of a smartphone camera attachment, the company’s compact cameras for building professionals, the camera for drones, and the company’s comprehensive line of infrared guided measurement test and measurement products.
