Lepton® 3 High Resolution LWIR Camera Module

FLIR offers their highest resolution micro thermal camera with 160 x 120 active pixels

Image of FLIR's Lepton 3.0The FLIR Lepton® 3, FLIR's highest resolution LWIR micro thermal camera solution, delivers full 160 x 120 pixel thermal resolution, a 4x increase over earlier Lepton® versions. The revolutionary Lepton® was the first complete longwave infrared thermal camera small enough to be used in smartphones and other mobile devices. The new, higher resolution Lepton® 3 gives users better image detail in a powerful, compact, lightweight package for even greater utility in commercial applications as both a thermal camera and a detection sensor. Smaller than a dime and ten times less expensive than a traditional IR camera, the 160 x 120 resolution Lepton® brings high quality thermal vision everywhere.
