Partnership boosts the technical and logistical support needed to seamlessly bring Sofradir’s SWIR sensors to industrial and surveillance equipment makers
Sofradir, the global leader in advanced infrared (IR) detectors for aerospace, defense and commercial markets, today announces it has entered into a distribution partnership with ATD Electronique to extend the European customer base for Sofradir’s Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) detectors based on infrared InGaAs (Indium Gallium Arsenide) technology.
European customers using Sofradir's InGaAs image detectors will now have the option to receive design support and supply-chain management services from ATD Electronique, a renowned distributor of leading brand name innovative electronic components and CMOS image sensors.
Sofradir’s high-speed and low-noise InGaAs SWIR detectors are ideally suited to industrial applications, such as machine vision, where superior techniques are required to support increased production needs and faster inspection speeds. Other typical applications include: semiconductor inspection, sorting of agricultural products, chemical purity analysis, recycling and hot process monitoring for the glass or metal industries. This list is rapidly growing as industrial manufacturers increasingly solve challenges by using SWIR to go beyond the limits of conventional visible light cameras.
