This full reverse costing study has been conducted to provide insight on technology data, manufacturing cost and selling price of the third generation FLIR LEPTON LWIR Camera Module.
- The Lepton 3 is integrated in the 2nd generation FLIR One for Android and iOS. It is an infrared camera system that integrates a fixed-focus lens assembly, an 160x120 long-wave infrared (LWIR) microbolometer sensor array, and signal-processing electronics.
- The new Lepton 3 LWIR core shares almost the same dimensions than the previous Lepton core but offers a four times improved resolution of 160x120 pixels (versus 80x60 pixel for the Lepton 2). Despite this improvement, it consumes slightly the same power with 160mW versus 150mW. This achievement has been made possible by the reduction of the pixel size, from 17µm to 12µm in the Lepton 3. This new pixel size has been accompanied by new processes for the ROIC, the microbolometer and the wafer-level window (new technology node, new pixel integration with the ROIC and a simplified window which no longer needs an SOI wafer…).
- On the optical module side, strong efforts have been made to improve lenses resulting in a wider field of view (FOV). The lenses are still wafer-level silicon optics but area has been enhanced thanks to hexagonal shapes compared to square shapes previously.
- The report also includes a comparison with the Lepton 2 core integrated in the FLIR One 1st Generation and a comparison with solutions provided in the Seek Thermal camera (Raytheon microbolometer) and in the Opgal Therm-App camera (Ulis microbolometer).
