About the Kodak KAF-0261E Imaging Sensor

From the intricacies of microscopy to the far reaches of astronomy, KODAK Full Frame CCD image sensors deliver high performance results. With outstanding quantum efficiency across the visible spectrum, these sensors are ideal for demanding imaging applications that can accommodate a mechanical shutter or strobe illumination, such as electronic still photography, medical X-ray, and inspection. The KAF-0261E is a high performance, silicon chargecoupled device (CCD) designed for a wide range of image sensing applications in the 0.3μm to 1.1μm wavelength band. Common applications include medical, scientific, military, machine and industrial vision.

The sensor is built with a true two-phase CCD technology employing a transparent gate. This technology simplifies the support circuits that drive the sensor and reduces the dark current without compromising charge capacity. The transparent gate results in spectral response increased ten times at 400nm, compared to a front side illuminated standard polysilicon gate technology. The sensitivity is increased 50% over the rest of the visible wavelengths. The low dark current of the KAF-0261E makes this device suitable for low light imaging applications
without sacrificing in charge capacity. The clock selectable on-chip output amplifiers have been specially designed to meet two different needs.

Kodak KAF-0216E Sensor Features

  • Transparent Gate True Two Phase Technology
  • High Gain Output (10 μV/e-) for low noise
  • Low Dark Current (<30pA/cm2 @ T=25oC)
  • 512(H) x 512(V) Photosensitive Pixels
  • Front Illuminated Full-Frame Architecture
  • 100% Fill Factor
  • Single Readout Register
  • Low Gain Output (3.5 μV/e-) for high dynamic range
