A collaborative new product from FastVision, LLC and frame grabber manufacturer, Alacron, the new FC 300 utilizes the new CMOS sensor from Panavision Imaging. “Panavision Imaging now offers one of the quietest CMOS sensor designs in the world,” says Dr. Joseph Sgro, CEO of Alacron, Inc. and FastVision, LLC. “Our new FC300 camera reflects many advantages of this new sensor including low cost and high speed of 3.2 megapixels running at 180 frames per second.”
Sgro explains that this technology can be made into a back-side imager (BSI) with delta doping (DD) and anti-reflective (AR) coating. The FC 300 incorporates Jet Propulsion Laboratory's patented delta doping process.
Possible applications for the new camera include medical, military (used for NIR -- near infrared), and manufacturing, as well as outer space exploration. "With it's anti-reflective coating, the new camera can survive the rigors of outspace, while producing clear images in very low light situations," Sgro explains.
