    The Kodak 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.

    MicroLine CCD cameras are smaller and lighter-weight than the competition, but outperforms them in key areas such as noise, frame quality, download speeds, bit-depth, and CCD cooling. FLI MicroLine CCD cameras feature fast download speeds that simply leave the competition behind. Each component of the FLI MicroLine camera is designed and manufactured for a long life in the most demanding conditions. All major components are CNC machined and you’re looking at only the highest quality electrical components and circuit boards with logo, serial number and focal plane indicators laser-etched on the surface – not printed. FLI designed photo-etched stainless-steel shutters are field-serviceable should they ever encounter damage and the sensor is hermetically sealed from dust and moisture. What sets FLI MicroLine CCD Cameras apart is their small form factor. At 3.7 x 3.7 x 5 inches (HWL), the FLI MicroLine is a small camera with big camera capabilities! The Microline improves upon the highly successful FLI MaxCam design in a number of key areas including cooling, download speeds, clear aperture, and sensor capability. The ML6303E CCD Camera features the Kodak Full Frame KAF-6303E Grade 2 Sensor and a 45mm high-speed mechanical shutter. Fully field-serviceable and hermetically sealed from dust and moisture. CCD can be operated at -30° deg C with typical room temperatures and without the need for water cooling or special cooling sequences. The FLI MicroLine CCD Camera is CNC machined with only the highest quality electrical components and circuit boards. The FLI MicroLine’s robust cooling design achieves a sustainable cooling performance of 50-55° deg C below ambient. The camera’s CCD can be operated at -30° deg C with typical room temperatures and without the need for water cooling (sold as a separate option). Conventional imaging cameras move the image data directly from the image sensor to the USB port, making them susceptible to added artifacts due to PC processing tasks, processor speed, and other PC-related issues. The MicroLine avoids these issues with its internal frame buffer, thus allowing an image to be quickly read out and downloaded to the PC. This allows the PC to take the image at whatever speed it is capable of without introducing any artifacts to the image. When it comes the FLI MicroLine, you get system compatibility and mounting options as well as mechanical shutter, liquid cooling, and Anti-Dew Technology options that will help you trick out your camera the way you want it. The MicroLine line of CCD cameras is compatible with all FLI imaging accessories, including the Precision line of Color Filter Wheels and Digital Focusers. MicroLine camera adapters are available for microscope, telescope and machine vision connectivity.

    The ML4720 uses a back-illuminated frame transfer sensorfrom e2v technologies. Half of the sensor is covered with a metal mask; half is exposed to light. 
    The exposed side of the sensor is centered in the camera aperture. The image is moved from the exposed side to the masked side in about 10 milliseconds, then read out from the masked side while a new exposure is integrating on the exposed side. (Therefore, frameto-frame timing depends in great part on the digitization speed.)
    The default configuration for the camera is two channel readout with software-selectable digitization speeds of 500 kHz and 4 MHz per channel. (Single channel readout is available on request, as are different digitization speeds.)
    The midband and broadband versions of the sensor are operated in MPP mode (low dark current). The UV version of the sensor is non-MPP

Hyperions offer the same deep cooling, high frame rates, and low noise as MicroLine cameras.

    At 4 x 6.75 x 3.35 inches, the Hyperion is a small camera with big camera capabilities. 
    Each component of the Hyperion camera is designed and manufactured for a long life in the most demanding conditions. Hyperion download speeds are fast yet maintain the 16-bit resolution necessary to produce high quality images. Hyperion cameras can cool to as much as 60°C below ambientwithout water assist. Simply set the Hyperion cooling where you want it and the camera will do the rest, quickly and without worries.

  33. Flight Lakes Instrumentation: The KL400's Low Dynamic Range (LDR) mode reads the image once and digitizes it to 12-bits. The user has eight gains to select from in LDR mode. Adjusting the gain affects full well size, dark current growth, and linearity.

    The High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode reads the pixels twice, digitizing with different gains. (Unlike CCDs that only read the charge from each pixel once, CMOS sensors can measure the charge multiple times.) The two images are merged to create a 16 bit image with the linearity of a single image, thus allowing an HDR image to show detail in both low-count and high-count areas of an image. Because of the additional read time, the maximum HDR frame rate is half that of the LDR mode.

    The Kepler camera also features a Low Dark Current (LDC) options for both LDR and HDR. When used, the LDC option minimizes dark current at the expense of reduced full well capacity. For short exposures where dark current growth is not a problem, LDC is not generally used. Standard modes (not LDC) provide the highest full well capacity and widest dynamic range. On the other hand LDC mode is very useful for imaging dim objects that require very long exposures where dark current growth can be significant.

    The following may be useful in making the decision on which mode is most appropriate:

    Choose LDR mode for required frame rate greater than 24 FPS (exposures <42 ms).

    Choose HDR mode for a dynamic range greater than 0 – 4095 counts

    Choose LDC when your exposures are sufficiently long that dark current growth uses a significant percentage of full well capacity. (Also cool sensor to lowest possible operating temp.)

    Do not choose LDC for short exposures.

     
    A Signal to Noise Ratio Comparison: PL16803 CCD vs. KL4040 sCMOS
    The ProLine PL16803 has been the de facto standard for astrophotography since its release in 2006, and the Kepler KL4040 continues the tradition of excellence. Both cameras use a 4k x 4k sensor with 9 micron pixels. The difference is the ProLine uses a traditional CCD while the Kepler uses a Scientific CMOS sensor.

    The table below is a comparison of the ProLine PL16803 and the Kepler KL4040 cameras, using a low flux value of 1 photon/pixel/second.

    Summary: A Paradigm Shift
    It is no surprise that the CCD’s best performance is with a single long exposure. What may be surprising is the Kepler KL4040 has a better signal-to-noise ratio than the PL16803 even with a single long exposure. The signal-to-noise ratio of the KL4040 is better than the PL16803 even when using short exposures that are stacked!

    The benefit of taking multiple short exposures is the option to discard a bad exposure ruined by satellite trails, tracking errors, or bad seeing (etc.). Incredible low-noise images are now possible with a single long exposure or many stacked short exposures. The KL4040’s superior performance allows it to be used for a wide range of applications and requirements.
