The GSENSE400BSI is a high-performance 2k x 2k image sensor designed for the most demanding scientific applications. It’s generous 11 μm rolling shutter pixel combined with the sensor’s dual gain HDR functionality deliver over 93 dB of dynamic range while maintaining a frame rate of 24 fps. If higher frame rates are required, 48 fps can be sustained in standard imaging mode with a dynamic range of 65 dB. The sensor’s exceptional sensitivity is due to its 1.6 e- read noise floor, low dark current, and backside thinning technology with peak QE of 95%. The 12bit data is delivered over 8 pairs of LVDS outputs and the total power consumption is below 650 mW. The sensor is packaged in a 115-pin PGA with removable cover glass for easy integration into cooled camera systems. The 22.5 mm x 22.5 mm square active imaging area is ideally sized for microscopy applications. Whether used to capture long exposures of faraway nebulae or for high-throughput imaging of biological samples, the GSENSE400BSI is the scientific industry’s high-performance imaging workhorse.
