TriEye and Vertilas demo 1.3µm VCSEL-driven SWIR sensing solutions

A collaboration between TriEye Ltd of Tel Aviv, Israel and Vertilas GmbH of Garching bei München, Germany has led to the development of a joint technology demonstrator that integrates TriEye’s Raven short-wave infrared (SWIR) image sensor with Vertilas’ indium phosphide (InP) vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) technology. Adopting high-volume, scalable manufacturing strategies, the technologies are said to provide cost-effective solutions for both consumer and industrial markets.

The system highlights the capabilities of TriEye’s industry-first CMOS-based SWIR sensor, which is said to be noted for its high sensitivity and 1.3MP resolution. Designed to enhance imaging in industries including automotive, consumer, biometrics and mobile robots, the solution is claimed to represent a significant step forward in sensing technology.

In parallel, Vertilas has introduced its SWIR InP VCSEL technology that provides high output power with high power efficiency. The new VCSEL technology is a complementary innovation that is said to enhance the SWIR camera’s functionality. Deploying 1.3µm VCSEL arrays enables greatly improved eye safety and signal quality while minimizing sunlight distortion. Vertilas’ InP VCSEL array technology also offers wavelengths at 1.55µm and up to 2µm. The new technology is expected to broaden the scope of applications in imaging and illumination across multiple industries.

“Our InP VCSEL technology, combined with TriEye’s exceptional SWIR sensor, marks a significant advancement in the realm of imaging and illumination solutions,” reckons Vertilas’ CEO Christian Neumeyr. “This collaboration is more than just a technological achievement; it represents our shared vision of innovating for a better, more efficient future in both consumer and industrial applications,” he adds.

“We are proud to unveil a solution that not only enhances imaging capabilities across various industries but also does so in a cost-effective and scalable manner, making advanced sensing technology more accessible than ever,” says TriEye’s CEO Avi Bakal.
