Boson® 320

Compact LWIR Thermal Camera Core

  • The FLIR Boson® 320 Longwave Infrared (LWIR) Thermal Camera Core sets a new standard for size, weight, power, and performance (SWaP).
  • A full-featured VGA thermal camera module just 7.5 grams and less than 4.9 cm³.
  • It utilizes FLIR infrared video processing architecture to enable advanced image processing and several industry-standard communication interfaces while keeping power consumption low.
  • It has a 12 µm pitch vanadium oxide (VOx) uncooled detector, a resolution of 320 x 256, and it is available with multiple lens configurations, adding flexibility to integration programs.
  • FLIR’s expandable infrared (XIR) video processing with embedded industry-standard interfaces empowers advanced processing and analytics in an industry-leading system-on-a-chip.
  • Boson new design lets FLIR bring you high resolution cameras at low resolution prices.
  • COMING SOON! A new release of Boson software (v 2.1) pending within the next couple of weeks will bring about:
    • Improved image quality through various new and improved noise filters for shutterless configurations (also benefits shuttered cameras)
    • USB 3.1 Gen 1 (formerly called USB 3.0 and also called USB 3.2 Gen 1 x 1)
    • External Sync fully validated
    • Miscellaneous bug fixes and optimizations
  • This product has a 1 – 8 week estimated delivery time. Expediting may be possible. Contact us for more information.
