Truesense Imaging launches 1080p and 4MP CCDs based on 7.4um pixels. The KAI-02170 CCD is a 1” optical format device in 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution supporting frame rates up to 60 fps ( with 4 outputs), while the KAI-04070 provides 4MP (2048 x 2048) resolution in a 4/3 optical format at up to 28 fps. When compared to a 5.5um pixel, signal-to-noise and low light performance in 7.4um platform have been enhanced through an 80% increase in light gathering capability of the pixel, and smear rejection has been improved four-fold to -115 dB. Dynamic range has been doubled to 70 dB, and can be extended even further to 82 dB in binned pixel operation.
The KAI-02170 and KAI-04070 CCDs are sampling today, with a full evaluation kit available that allows the performance of the new devices to be examined in detail. Truesense blog tells more about the placement of the new devices in the company's product line.
