Milpitas, CA, August 17, 2011— BAE Systems Imaging Solutions introduces the latest member of the new
scientific CMOS (sCMOS) family which has received an immense response from the imaging market. This new sensor has 6.5 micron
square pixels in a 1920x1080 format and is based on the same 5T pixel structure previously released in the Fairchild Imaging
CIS2051 sensor. It is available in both a monochrome and a color (Bayer pattern) version.
The Fairchild Imaging CIS1021 is specifically designed for low light imaging applications that require an HD sensor format.
Along with its extremely low noise readout and excellent QE, this sensor provides greater than 88dB of intra-scenic dynamic
range and produces images at rates up to 100 FPS at full resolution. This unprecedented combination of features makes the
CIS1021 ideal for low light scientific imaging applications, fluorescence-based medical diagnostics as well as surveillance
and aerial imaging applications.
These exciting new sCMOS sensors are now available for purchase from BAE Systems Imaging Solutions.
