The KAE-02152 Image Sensor from ON Semiconductor is a 1080p resolution, 2/3” optical format, Interline CCD Image Sensor. It incorporates an enhanced pixel design that increases sensitivity in near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths - an improvement that can be critical in applications such as surveillance, microscopy, and ophthalmology. Each of the sensor’s four outputs incorporates both a conventional horizontal CCD register and a high gain EMCCD register. It has an intra-scene switchable gain feature samples each charge packet on a pixel-by-pixel basis.
QE at 820 nm has approximately doubled, enabling enhanced sensitivity without any decrease in the device’s Modulation Transfer Function (MTF). A vertical overflow drain structure suppresses image blooming, provides excellent MTF, and enables electronic shuttering for precise exposure control. It is available in two package configurations: PGA, and PGA with integrated thermoelectric cooler (TEC).
