FLIR has released what it calls the world's smallest microbolometer-based thermal imaging camera core. A microbolometer is a type of thermal sensor.

The FLIR Lepton can be used in security systems, tablets, smartphones and other electronics, according to the company.

"Lepton utilizes multiple proprietary technologies, including wafer level detector packaging, wafer level micro-optics, and a custom integrated circuit that supports all camera functions on a single integrated low power chip," reads a FLIR press release. FLIR has more than 100 patents associated with Lepton.

"Not only will Lepton support an array of new imaging applications, but its revolutionary price, size, and low power consumption will open new markets for the useful information and data that thermal technology provides," said FLIR CEO Andy Teich.
