Hyperspectral imaging sensors

  • Off-the-shelf hyperspectral image sensors, all based on CMOSIS CMV2000 image sensor, have been designed, manufactured and available from imec in quantities of 1 to 1,000+
  • Custom hyperspectral imaging sensors (with different image sensor base, filter specification, pattern layout, etc...) can be designed and manufactured based on specific application requirements.
  • Please contact us for more information on OEM or custom developments inquiries


Hyperspectral imaging cameras

Hyperspectral imaging camera demo-kits including imec HSI sensor(s), camera housing, lens, tripod mounts, reflectance calibration tile, lighting solution, storage box and imec HSImager™ hyperspectral imaging software license are available from imec directly to ease your application work.

Explore all cameras

All camera demo-kits come with HSI STUDIO™, the most advanced hyperspectral imaging software developed by imec's integrated imaging & vision system team, to ensure the highest quality hyperspectral imaging datacubes reconstruction. Custom configurations of hardware and software packages are possible and can be discussed.
