High-Sensitivity Digital Camera Based on CMOS Image Sensor
As part of their long-term development program, Hamamatsu’s ORCA Flash2.8 cameras are now being delivered to customers incorporating a unique 2.8 M pixel Scientific CMOS sensor.
A combination of high speed, low noise, and ease of interface with external peripheral equipment makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications, such as life-science microscopy, industrial imaging, and sensitive analytical measurement.
It achieves 45 frames/second output in full resolution, making it ideal for fast, low-intensity imaging. The ORCA Flash2.8 can achieve a maximum speed of 1,273 frames/second 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 framegrabber.
