JULY 30, 2009--The monochrome DS1-D1312 Camera Link cameras are based on the newly developed, third-generation A1312 and A1312I CMOS imagers, optimized for applications in the visible as well as NIR (up to 1100 nm) spectra. The cameras deliver up to 110 frames/s at full resolution. Speed may be increased to thousands of frames per second by reducing ROI through horizontal and vertical windowing. Sensor resolution is 1312 x 1082 pixels, with 8 x 8-µm square pixels and greater than 60% fill factor. The sensors do not have a cover glass, making it possible to reduce the number of elements in the optical path.

New CameraLink camera series from Photonfocus
With the new monochrome DS1-D1312 and MV1-D1312(I) cameras, with CameraLink interface, Photonfocus is introducing 9 new CMOS cameras, based on the newly developed 3rd Generation CMOS imagers A1312 and A1312I from Photonfocus. All cameras are based on the newly developed A1312 and A1312I image sensor from Photonfocus, which were optimised for applications in the visible as well as the NIR (Near Infra Red up to 1100nm). The new MV1-D1312(I) camera series provides a high dynamic range of up to 120dB with the well known LinLog technology patented by Photonfocus. The new cameras are equipped with a standard or an extended feature set, depending on the camera model and your vision application needs whilst offering an outstanding image quality.
The A1312(I) image sensor series is designed and fabricated in a 0.35µm CMOS technology optimized for image sensors to achieve an outstanding sensitivity and quantum efficiency. The resolution of the new sensors is 1312 x 1082 pixels, with 8µm x 8µm square pixels and over 60% fill factor with an excellent image quality. The new A1312(I) CMOS sensor has an extended spectral range covering 350nm to 1100nm. Besides the overall excellent image quality it's worth pointing out the remarkably high Near Infra Red (NIR) responsivity (Quantum Efficiency ca. 30% at 1000nm) of the new A1312I image sensor.
The new DS1-D1312 and MV1-D1312(I) camera series deliver up to 110fps @ full resolution. A major benefit of the new camera is the possibility to further increase the speed to thousands of frames per second by reducing the ROI - Region of Interest - through horizontal and vertical windowing.
Customers requiring sharp and smear free images even with high frame rates will be pleased with the fast global shutter of the new DS1-D1312 and MV1-D1312(I) camera series developed by Photonfocus.
The new DS1-D1312 and MV1-D1312(I) CMOS camera series are able to start capturing a new image whilst outputting the current image, thus maximising the available exposure time and/or frame rate.
Not using a cover glass on the new A1312 and A1312I image sensors, and with it in the new DS1-D1312 and MV1-D1312(I) CMOS cameras, makes it possible to reduce the number of elements in the optical path. This leads to a maximisation of the sensitivity, whilst avoiding internal reflections and associated image artefacts.
