Scientific CMOS cameras - support page

Cameras with the newest Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) sensors from Gpixel (GSENSE400, GSENSE2020, GSENSE5130, GSENSE6060) including their Backside illuminated versions come in two combinations.
First is a fusion of the highly sensitive sensors with USB 3.0 interface and Thermoelectric Cooling using Peltier - ideal for decreasing the already low noise.
Second is utilizing the fast PCIe interface to utilize the full potential of high speed and Global shutter feature while keeping remarkable Dynamic range and Full Well Capacity.
Thus, the cameras are designed with consideration for both the Scientific applications requiring long exposures as well as industrial systems taking advantage of image quality and minimal motion blur.
