ON Semiconductor announces a new 16.2MP CCD for astrophotography and scientific imaging application. The KAF-16200 APS-H (34.6 mm diagonal) CCD is said to provide best in class image uniformity and dark current, and uses 6.0µm pixels with a transparent gate electrode for high sensitivity, high DR, and integrated overexposure protection.
“This new image sensor targets opportunities directly identified by our camera manufacturing customers,” said Herb Erhardt, VP and GM, Industrial and Security Division, Image Sensor Group at ON Semiconductor, “The KAF-16200 provides a 2x increase in resolution compared to our current device addressing this segment, without sacrificing the CCD-level image quality required for these applications. This is another example of ON Semiconductor’s ability to leverage a broad technology base to provide the highest quality image sensor devices regardless of the underlying technology.”
The KAF-16200 is available in both monochrome and color configurations.
