Gamma Scientific Introduces RS-5-93K Digital Light Source System

November 25, 2008 - San Diego, CA - Gamma Scientific (www.gamma-sci.com) introduces the new Digital Light Source RS-5-93K for characterization of the performance of image sensors and image sensor systems. The new device simplifies focal plane array testing while offering high resolution digital brightness control with near perfect linearity and uniformity. The light level setting to 1 part in 65,525 is provided in absolute, NIST-traceable, radiometric and/or photometric units.

The spectral distribution ranges from the UV into the near-infrared, RGB, and broadband white, featuring a linearity deviation of less than 0.25% RMS of full scale over the entire brightness adjustment range. With simple commands and computer controls the RS-5 digital light control system can be easily integrated into new or existing test systems.

The RS-5-93K is configured to mount on the Agilent 93000 image sensor tester, which is ideal for use in a production-line testing application of CMOS image sensors. This system is used for both evaluating image sensors in the wafer stage and testing individual sensors after the wafers are diced into single components.

Advanced features include zero down-time, millisecond-speed light intensity changes, and extremely high output stability. The affordable unit works without lamp alignments or the need to replace the lamps. Quick and easy installation makes this affordable, new digital light source system ideal for a variety of testing and calibration and/or controlled illumination applications.
