Fairchild lmaging's new BSI sCMOS 3.0 sensors define the next horizon in professional imaging.
The BSI sCMOS 3.0 LTN4323 is a high performance sensor with market leading 0.7e- RMS read noise. Outstanding low light performance is achieved through combining extremely low noise with the high quantum efficiency BSI process. The LTN4323 delivers the performance demanded by today's imaging professionals for scientific, machine vision, and industrial applications.
The LTN4323 has 4432 x 2368 pixel resolution and employs new BSI sCMOS 3.0 pixel engineering to realize extremely low noise, enhance MTF, boost NIR-QE, and reduce dark current. The increased MTF is achieved through reduced pixel to pixel cross-talk that dramatically improves sharpness. Compared to typical FSI sensors, an innovative BSI process enhancement delivers a broad spectrum NIR-QE with >2x sensitivity. Dark current at 30C is <2e/sec enabling compact camera designs without the need for TE cooling.
Fairchild lmaging's proven dual gain amplifier architecture results in 16 bits per pixel to encompass the full dynamic range. Low gain and high gain signal paths provide analog to digital conversions at multiple gain factors on a pixel by pixel basis. This process optimizes both dynamic range and low light noise.
This sensor supports conventional rolling shutter, as well as global shutter, and global reset operating modes. Global reset mode is perfect for machine vision applications with controlled lighting, while global shutter enables all pixels to start and stop integration at the same time.
The LTN4323 consumes only 1.8 watts at 120 fps, which is ideal for non-TE cooled applications. However, the sensor is housed in a CLGA package which can accommodate a TE cooler for critical high performance applications.
