Digital Camera Incorporates Scientific CMOS Sensor

Hamamatsu has introduced the Orca Flash2.8, a high-sensitivity digital camera based on a next-generation Scientific CMOS image sensor. Designed for low-light imaging at high frame rates, the camera offers high resolution, high sensitivity, high speed and low noise. The company's Orca Flash2.8 cameras are now being delivered to customers incorporating a 2.8-megapixel Scientific CMOS sensor.

The cameras are suitable for a variety of applications, such as life-science microscopy, industrial imaging and sensitive analytical measurement. According to Hamamatsu, 45 frames per second (fps) are output in full resolution, making the camera ideal for fast, low-intensity imaging. The Orca Flash2.8 can achieve a maximum speed of 1,273fps in sub-array mode.

The cooled FL-280 sensor's design keeps readout noise minimal at three electrons, even with very fast readout speeds. The camera's 12-bit output interfaces with a PC via a standard Cameralink base frame grabber.
