BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Jan. 19, 2012 — Andor Technology plc has announced several performance enhancements to its Neo camera, which is based on next-generation scientific CMOS (sCMOS) technology.

Key enhancements include faster sustained frame rates, better image quality, hardware pixel binning, flexible region of interest with single-pixel granularity, accurate time stamp and improved global snapshot exposure performance.

The 5.5-megapixel sCMOS sensor, with a 6.5-µm pixel size, achieves 1 e read noise at 30 fps, and the dual-amplifier architecture facilitates a wide dynamic range of 30,000:1. The camera delivers deep vacuum cooling down to −40 °C, critical to maintaining low noise and minimal pixel blemish in all exposure conditions.

The camera offers comprehensive field-programmable gate array intelligence for good image quality and quantitative stability, coupled with 4-GB on-head image memory that enables it to acquire extended kinetic bursts at frame rates faster than the variable hard drive write speeds, eliminating the need for expensive and complex PC solutions.

The laboratory camera is suitable for live-cell imaging and is an alternative to interline CCDs. Although sCMOS sensors do not provide the raw sensitivity of electron-multiplying CCD cameras for very low light applications, the company says that they outperform interline across several key parameters.

The sensor offers rolling and snapshot exposure modes. The latter is directly analogous to the snapshot exposure mechanism of interline or frame transfer CCD cameras in allowing freeze-frame capture of fast-moving or fast-changing objects.
