Buying board level cameras

Introducing at Photonex 2009, the new C10990 series of OEM CCD board level cameras. The new series feature high sensitivity and high resolution and includes the latest 1.3 million pixel 2/3 inch progressive scan interline front illuminated CCD, circuitry and lens mount all on one board. Also on show, the latest range of semi-conductor detectors featuring photon detection capability, the new S10362-33 series multi-pixel photon counters (MPPC). The new device utilizes a Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode structure for ultra-low-level light detection, and the active area has been increased almost ten times from 1 mm2 to 9mm2.

Other products include the new C10988MA; a unique, ultra-compact spectrometer built using MOEMS technology. The C10988MA is a thumb-sized device, measuring only 27.6 x 13 x 16.8 mm, developed for use in portable and hand-held devices, where a standard mini spectrometer would be too large and consume too much power.
