Cardinal 640 is a state-of-the-art SWIR detector. The FPA consists of the digital SNIR ROIC and InGaAs technology. The package includes a Thermo Electric Cooler (TEC) that can be utilized for cooling the FPA for Low Light Level scenario.

The low power proximity board provides the ROIC timing and sensitive power supplies. It has a Camera Link interface similar to Pelican-D. TEC control electronics are incorporated as well.
