Teledyne Imaging, part of Teledyne Technologies, announces the development of a new generation of CMOS sensors and cameras. The initiative involves several groups within Teledyne Imaging, focused on the development, fabrication, and supply of CMOS detectors and cameras for the scientific research and commercial markets including astronomy, soft X-ray, microscopy, spectroscopy, and biomedical imaging.
We are very pleased to launch this new initiative. This is a natural extension of our legacy of sensor and camera development in both CCD and CMOS, and is designed to meet the needs of emerging markets and applications. It represents the strength of the Teledyne organization, and the value of the acquisition strategy we have implemented, by combining our expertise across several business units, from sensor design to cameras and system interface.

These new initiatives will meet the increasing demand for higher performing sensor technology by combining essential elements of both CCD and CMOS sensors in a new generation of devices that are distinctly different from anything currently available on the market. Our customers, in nearly every vertical market segment, are asking for the optimal combination of resolution, pixel size, sensitivity, and speed. These new designs will include multiple imaging formats up to 66 megapixels, quantum efficiency up to 95%, as well as ultra-low noise and high-speed readout. Teledyne will also incorporate their expertise in sensor and electronic cooling to further increase performance
The project will combine the efforts of multiple groups at the Teledyne Digital Imaging segment with over five decades of experience in advanced CCD and CMOS detector and camera technologies. The first sensor and camera prototypes will be available in Q4 2021, with full-scale production in 2022.
