Electronic Imaging & Signal Processing

CCD camera for scientific, astronomical imaging

Teledyne DALSA


Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company, recently showcased its multispectral, aerospace, IR and custom CCD and CMOS sensors and cameras at the SPIE Optics & Photonics trade show in San Diego, California. In addition, the company unveiled its new large format low light imaging CCD camera, the QuantaPro 2K. The new CCD camera is ideal for astronomical, scientific, and medical imaging.

Offering an economical solution through the use of a front illuminated device, the quantum efficiency (QE) approaches that of back illumination, reaching a peak QE of 70%. In addition, the single output format running at 10MHz allows for higher frame rates without the complications of multi-output tap matching.

Features and benefits of the QuantaPro 2K include: -- Internal cooling to -35C with anti fog feature -- Large 5cm x 5 cm format with highly sensitive 24u pixels -- GigE interface for convenience -- Single output architecture -- Low readout noise and dark current -- No allowed column defects -- Dark current reaches 0.1 e / pix / sec at -35oC -- Linear 16 bit digitization provides dynamic range to 10000:1 (80dB)
