Scientific CMOS - sCMOS 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 USB3 interface and Thermoelectric Cooling using Peltier - ideal for decreasing the already very low noise level.
The second is utilizing the fast PCIe interface to take full advantage of the high speed potential and Global shutter feature while keeping remarkable Dynamic range and large Full Well Capacity.

Thus, the cameras are designed with consideration for both the Scientific applications requiring long exposures, as well as, industrial systems focused on supreme image quality and minimal motion blur.
