At SPIE Photonics West 2018, ON Semiconductorwill showcase its KAE-04471 EMCCD image sensor. The KAE-04471 is a 4.4 MPixel, 4/3” format interline transfer ECCD image sensor that features large 7.4 µm pixels and reaches a frame rate of 30s and provides exceptional imaging performance in extreme low light applications, according to the company. An intra-scene switchable gain feature samples each charge packet on a pixel-by-pixel basis, which enables the camera system to determine whether the charge will be routed through the normal gain output or the EMCCD output based on a user-selectable threshold. This feature, according to ON Semiconductor, enables imaging in extreme low lighting, even when bright objects are within a dark scene, allowing a camera to capture quality images from sunlight to starlight.
