CCD versus CMOS in low light live in action at DSS 2015

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Apr 24, 2015

At the SPIE DSS 2015, we demonstrated our rugged CCD (TMX7-DHD) and CMOS (TMX74) cameras.  The performance is compared live in full light and then low light when the cover is closed.

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

CCD versus CMOS in global security applications

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Thu, Mar 26, 2015

With the move from standard resolution to HD for full motion video in global security applications to improve detection, recognition, and identification capabilities, there is then the question of what HD image sensor and camera are the best.

What can you do with 4 electrons of read noise now from a CMOS industrial camera – half of that of a CCD

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Mar 20, 2015

We talked about the improved sensitivity of latest generation CMOS image sensors compared to CCD – see here for the details.  For the CCD and CMOS image sensors we measured quantum efficiency and read noise, we also collected video and images at various light levels from our subsequent cameras.
