Fairchild lmaging's new BSI sCMOS 3.0 sensors define the next horizon in professional imaging.
The MST4323 is a high performance 4K sensor employing new BSI sCMOS 3.0 pixel engineering to realize extremely low noise, enhance MTF, boost QE, and reduce dark current. The 87d8 dynamic range of the MST4323 ensures capturing every scene detail under demanding lighting conditions. The MST4323 delivers the performance demanded by today's imaging professionals for pro-video and cinema systems, machine vision, and industrial applications.
Incorporating a backside illuminated (BSI) process implementation enables the MST4323 to achieve high quantum efficiency (QE), and combined with low 1.0e- RMS noise performance, results in outstanding low light sensitivity. The 4344 x 2368 pixel image size provides a 248 x 208 overscan beyond DCl-4K resolution which can be utilized for increased field of view.
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. The new sCMOS 3.0 design techniques combined with state of the art BSI processing dramatically lowers color crosstalk and boosts MTF resulting in high color fidelity and sharpness.
This sensor supports both conventional rolling shutter and global reset operating modes. Global reset mode is perfect for machine vision applications with controlled lighting. Read noise and dynamic range are optimized in either mode.
The MST4323 consumes only 1.8 watts at 120 fps, which is ideal for portable professional camera systems. The sensor is housed in a CLGA package with high quality double-AR coverglass.
