Intevac’s Core Sensor Technology
Intevac’s EBAPS technology is based on a III-V semiconductor photocathode in proximity-focus with a high resolution, backside-thinned, CMOS chip anode. The electrons emitted by the photocathode are directly injected in the electron bombarded mode into the CMOS anode, where the electrons are collected, amplified and read-out to produce digital video directly out of the sensor.
Light Spectrum Addressed
Delivering Superior Performance
Visible / Near-Infrared:
Selectable by photocathode choice
Resolution / Frame Rate / Low Power:
Selectable by silicon sensor choice
The EBAPS sensor achieves state-of-the-art night vision performance in a compact, lightweight, low power, low cost package by eliminating the complex components associated with traditional image intensifier assemblies.
How the DI² Sensor Works
- Photons are absorbed by photocathode allowing electrons to be emitted.
- Electrons are accelerated by high voltage
- Electrons are collected on megapixel CMOS silicon sensor
- Digital output
