Lambert Instruments has announced the HiCam 5000, an intensified high-speed CMOS camera that is fiber optically coupled to a gatable 18-mm hybrid image intensifier. The gating is synchronized with the readout of the sensor and operates at frame rates of up to 5000 fps at full resolution. The camera is suitable for use in high-speed fluorescence microscopy, single-photon detection, combustion and plasma imaging. It is computer controlled and has a Gigabit Ethernet interface and up to 16 GB of solid-state memory. It offers 8-bit analog-to-digital conversion, a global electronic shutter and a typical dynamic range of 48 dB. The high-voltage gate unit and pulse generator are built into the housing, and the gate unit amplifies the transistor-transistor-logic gate pulses from the pulse generator or from an external pulse source.
