Forlinx FET3588-C SoM Facilitating the Intelligent Development of Infrared Thermal Imaging

According to Maxtech International data, the global civil infrared market size will exceed 7.6 billion US dollars in 2023, and in the past four years, the infrared industry has maintained a growth rate of over 11%. Moreover, according to data from Huajing Industrial Research Institute, the market size of China's infrared thermal imaging industry reached 65.534 billion yuan in 2021.

With the development of non-cooled infrared thermal imaging technology, infrared thermal imagers have been widely used in civil applications. This statement is attributed to Huajing Industrial Research Institute.

Against this backdrop, manufacturers and institutions that specialize in the research and production of infrared thermal imaging products have begun to lay out strategies for the civilian infrared thermal imaging market, which is a blue ocean market. The breast surgery research team from Peking Union Medical College Hospital in Beijing has applied their independently developed artificial intelligence-based infrared thermal imaging system (AI-IRT) to pre-screening for breast cancer.

The team has also developed a portable AI-IRT system, which includes an infrared miniature camera connected to a smartphone, AI software, and a real-time updated infrared thermal imaging database.

When using this system for pre-screening of breast cancer, the real-time captured infrared thermal images of the breasts are uploaded to the artificial intelligence software, which then provides a risk assessment rating. The system is non-invasive, radiation-free and easy to use, and can be used in families and community health service centers for screening.

RK3588 System on Module(SoM)

Infrared thermal imaging can be used as an electrical equipment monitoring system, which is installed around the transformer, etc. Through optical fiber transmission, the monitoring of equipment can be completed in the monitoring room. 24 hours, all-weather, full coverage of all substation power equipment for real-time monitoring of thermal distribution field, real-time grasp of equipment operation status, found abnormal temperature rise immediately alarm.

In addition to equipment monitoring, it is also widely used in substation inspection, distribution inspection, transmission and distribution cable inspection industry, so that inspectors can grasp the temperature while helping the power industry inspection work become more efficient and easier.

In order to adapt to the development of infrared thermal imaging industry, Forlinx Embedded recommends FET3588-C System on Module(SoM) as the main control of highly integrated infrared thermal imager.
