sCMOS Sensors

Our sCMOS sensors are revolutionary imaging devices, called scientific CMOS (sCMOS) since they are designed with a superior combination of features able to meet the extreme performance requirements of many scientific applications. sCMOS sensors exhibit the following exceptional qualities:

  • Extremely low read noise to preserve small signal levels
  • High efficiency of light collection and conversion
  • Large intra-scene dynamic range
  • High speed operation to capture dynamic events

These sensors can be found inside the top cameras being used today in the scientific imaging market. Our sCMOS sensors allow our customers to collect images under lower light conditions and at higher speeds than are possible with standard technology. Other demanding camera applications that have benefited from our sCMOS technology include professional video, surveillance, and industrial inspection.
