Kodak KAF-16803 Full Frame Sensor...

The KAF-16803 image sensor is a redesigned version of the popular KAF-16801E image sensor (4096 x 4096 pixel resolution) with enhancements that specifically target the needs of high performance digital radiography applications. Improvements include enhanced quantum efficiency for improved DQE at higher spatial frequencies, lower noise for improved contrast in areas of high density, and anti-blooming protection to prevent image bleed from over exposure in regions outside the patient. Utilizing Kodak's proprietary single gate ITO process and micro-lens technology, the KAF- 16803 image sensor with its large imaging area and small pixel size provides the sensitivity, resolution and contrast necessary for high quality digital radiographs. To simplify device integration, the KAF-16803 image sensor uses the same pin-out and package as the KAF-16801E image sensor.

  • Array: 4096 x 4096
  • Pixel Size: 9 microns
  • Array Size: 36.9mm x 36.9mm
  • Imaging Area (mm2): 1359
  • Diagonal: 52.1mm
  • Monochrome or Color: Monochrome

About the AFW50-7S Filter Wheel...
