Product News: New OEM 4.0 MPixel Scientific CMOS Board Level Camera from Hamamatsu

04 Jul 2013

Hamamatsu introduces the new C11440-52U board level camera for OEM scientific and industrial customers. It has a unique scientific CMOS sensor and is designed to deliver high performance and cost-effective imaging in a compact, board-level format.

This scientific CMOS camera for OEM customers is ideal for a wide variety of scientific and industrial applications including semiconductor inspection, failure analysis, X-ray scintillator readout, fluorescence microscopy and high speed / high resolution imaging.

The new C11440-52U delivers 30 frames / sec at the full resolution of 2048 x 2048 pixels (6.5 x 6.5 micron), a wide dynamic range of 18000:1 and a very low noise level of just 2.3 electrons (rms), 1.6 electrons (median). These features allow the capture of high quality images at fast speeds, even in low light conditions.

Customers who wish to investigate low-intensity samples or fast moving targets can now achieve results which have not been possible with traditional machine vision or CMOS cameras.

The use of USB 3.0 offers a low-cost communication interface, while the camera’s various external trigger options allow seamless integration with the OEM customer’s equipment.
