Comparison of CMOS (IMX174) Cameras

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, May 20, 2015

With how good the latest industrial CMOS image sensors have gotten, it might seem that a camera just simply connects the image sensor to an interface.

CCD and CMOS rugged cameras for long-range observation systems

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, May 6, 2015

The proliferation of mission critical imaging systems in recent years is a result of heightened security concerns and intensified surveillance at airports, seaports, in cities, at borders, in warzones, etc.  Long-range observation and designator systems have been installed on permanent and mobile platforms to provide 24-hour surveillance and early warning detection.

CCD versus CMOS: blooming and smear performance

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Thu, Apr 2, 2015

For many years CCD image sensors and cameras have offered advantages in image quality such as greater dynamic range, better noise performance, and better uniformity. For this reason, CCD cameras were still used in many of the most demanding machine vision systems needing the highest accuracy or in global security systems where sensitivity in low light is critical
