Large Pixel Imager Delivers 35dB at 1 Lux f/1.2 Color

Las Vegas, April 10, 2013— Fairchild Imaging by BAE Systems, the premier supplier of large format, high performance CMOS image sensors, today announced that it will be demonstrating the extreme low light performance of its scientific CMOS (sCMOS) image sensor products at ISC West 2013.  Designed with mission critical performance in mind, Fairchild Imaging’s sCMOS image sensors deliver best in class low light performance with 35dB at 1 lux f/1.2 color, making them ideally suited for security, surveillance and intelligent transportation applications. 

Fairchild Imaging’s sCMOS family delivers stunning <1.5 e- RMS readout noise and greater than 86dB intra-scene dynamic range via a proven 5T, 6.5-micron sCMOS pixel.  The sCMOS products offer rich feature sets and operational flexibility, making them ideally suited for high performance security cameras.

“sCMOS sensors utilize efficient light collection, combined with low noise electronics, to achieve high sensitivity, which enables the sensors to deliver images in low light situations where other imagers cease to be useful,” said Vern Klein, Director of Marketing for Fairchild Imaging.  “Our sCMOS sensors, including the CIS1910 1080p sensor and the CIS2521 5.5Mpix sensor, also provide high intra-scene dynamic range, without the need for multiple shots over time.  Such high dynamic range is made possible by an innovative dual digitizer approach combined with deep full well capacity.”
