Abstract:
At SPIE Photonics West 2013, imec presents a prototype hyperspectral imager for snapshot and video acquisition. Being fast, compact and cost-efficient, imec's CMOS-based imaging systems with integrated hyperspectral filters are suited for multiple industrial vision applications. Imec is currently sampling the line scan version of its hyperspectral imaging solution, offering a ready-to-use evaluation kit to the industry to line scan and analyze specific sample material.

Imec First to Introduce Hyperspectral CMOS Camera for Snapshot and Video: Ideal for next-generation industrial inspection, medical diagnosis and security applications, CMOS imagers with integrated hyperspectral filters enable compact fast hyperspectral imaging

Leuven, Belgium and San Francisco, CA | Posted on January 31st, 2013

Imec's prototype hyperspectral imager for snapshot and video captures an entire multispectral image at one discrete point in time. The imager is achieved by applying a hyperspectral filter in a novel tiled lay-out on a commercially available CMOS-based image sensor (CMOSIS CMV2000, 2 megapixel, max 340fps). The imager and off-the-shelf fore-optics simultaneously duplicates the scene onto each filter tile, acquiring multispectral image cubes of 256x256 pixels over 32 bands in the spectral range of 600-1000nm at up to 340 cubes per second—compliant to normal machine vision illumination levels. Due to its simple cube assembly process, the camera is able to acquire real-time hyperspectral video.

Imec's line scan solution monolithically integrates hyperspectral filters on a CMOSIS CMV4000 imager (4 megapixel, max 180fps). It scans 100 spectral bands in the 600-1000nm wavelength range. The filter bandwidth (Full Width Half Max) is about 10nm across the spectral range, with a transmission efficiency of ~85%. The speed of the system corresponds to an equivalent speed of 2,000 lines per second, significantly exceeding current state-of-the-art hyperspectral sensors.

Imec is the first to sample CMOS integrated hyperspectral imaging sensors, giving the industry access to a compelling innovative technology. Evaluation kits of imec's line scan solution are available now. They are fast and easy to set-up, enabling hyperspectral scanning and analysis of sample material, and delivering relevant test data within a few days after installation. The kits include all required components, from imager to host PC and software, and can be easily rebuilt into different configurations. During the course of 2013, imec expects to also launch evaluation systems compatible with its novel hyperspectral sensor for hyperspectral snapshot and video acquisition.
