Teledyne DALSA Announces New Large-Format Full-Frame CCD Image Sensor


Teledyne DALSA's 60 megapixel CCDs are available in both Color and Monochrome for cutting-edge reproduction and photogrammetry applications

September 11, 2012

WATERLOO, Ontario – September 11, 2012 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in digital image sensing technology, announced today its family of 60 million pixel, large format full-frame CCD image sensors. The new FTF9168 image sensors offer the highest resolution available in the industry today within a 645 optical format that can be imaged using commercially available lenses. Available in both RGB-Bayer color and monochrome versions, the FTF9168 CCD image sensors are ideal solutions for resolution-demanding applications like fabric and artwork reproduction, document scanning and aerial photogrammetry.

The Teledyne DALSA FTF9168 Image Sensors deliver the following benefits:
■ Very large optical format (54 x 40 mm2)
■ 60 million active pixels (8956H x 6708V)
■ >95% fill factor
■ Excellent anti-blooming
■ Micro lenses with wide angular response
■ High sensitivity & dynamic range (>70dB)
■ Data rate up to 25 MHz per output (4 outputs)
■ RoHS compliant

To kick-start your camera development based on these new FTF9168 image sensors, our highly experienced application support team has created a camera reference design (Evaluation Kit) and application note that will help you get the ultimate imaging performance out of these sensors.

“Teledyne DALSA has over 30 years of leading the world in CCD image sensor design. With our internal wafer foundry, we can control the entire process from design to delivery, offering both the ultimate in performance tuning and security of supply,” said Jelle de Jong, Director of Marketing and Sales at Teledyne DALSA in Eindhoven. “The FTF9168 contributes to our continuing history of excellence and is the highest-resolution large optical format sensor available on the market today.”
