Alacron and its affiliate, FastVision, have announced that their ultra high speed camera, the FC300, is to be highlighted at the Advanced Imaging Association’s (AIA) trade show being held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA. Panavision Imaging (PVI) has provided the CMOS Sensor for the camera. Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s patented delta doping process has been incorporated in the new camera.
PVI’s CMOS sensor has a high speed, quiet sensor design. These features are utilized in the 180 fps 3.2 MP camera. The CEO of Alacron and FastVision, Dr. Joseph Sgro, stated that the quiet sensor design technology can be converted into a back-side imager having anti-reflective coating and delta doping. The delta doping-CMOS sensor combination enables a 100% fill factor. It also facilitates sensor sensitivity selection according to the desired wave length within a wide range from near infrared to deep ultra-violet.
PVI’s Dynamax CMOS sensor is based on a patented active column sensor technology. It features ultra-low noise levels even when operated at high frame rates in rolling shutter or global shutter modes. The FC300 camera provides added advantages for applications in manufacturing, military and medical markets.
