PRESS RELEASE: Fairchild Imaging to Exhibit at Photonics West 2006
Fairchild Imaging will present custom imaging solutions at the Photonics West 2006 Conference and Exhibition in San Jose, California. A new four megapixel CCD and cooled, multiport, scientific CCD camera will be shown as well as a new hybrid CCD / CMOS low-light-level imager.
Milpitas, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2006 -- Fairchild Imaging announced today that it will exhibit at the Photonics West 2006 Conference and Exhibition from January 24 through January 26 in San Jose, California. The event draws world class optical and instrumentation engineers and is an excellent venue for the company to unveil custom imaging solutions for this demanding audience.
Situated in booth 6154 of the South Hall, Fairchild Imaging will present new CCD and CMOS detector technology for demanding imaging applications in aerospace, defense, industrial and scientific markets. New image sensors include a four-port four megapixel CCD and a one megapixel CCD / CMOS hybrid. The new CCD is available in front- or back-illuminated configurations and offers dramatic improvements in both sensitivity and speed. The novel hybrid image sensor combines the best of both CCD and CMOS technologies: the high image quality, low dark current and high fill-factor of a CCD with the high speed, low noise and low power of a CMOS readout. The one megapixel hybrid sensor delivers extreme low-light imaging performance at high speed - even video frame rates at full resolution.
In addition to these high performance image sensors, new low-light camera technology incorporating these sensors will be on display. The Peregrine 3041 drives the CCD 3041 to the limits of its performance. The cooled, multiport Peregrine camera boasts 12 MHz readout, - 60C TEC cooling and a USB 2.0 interface. Colin Earle, Director of Sales and Marketing at Fairchild Imaging, states, "the new Peregrine 3041 CCD camera is an exceptional detector for low-light-level optical imaging and Photonics West is a great exhibition for this technology. It's here that we find the top scientists and engineers who demand this level of performance".
