A new generation of CMOS sensors and cameras has been announced by Teledyne Imaging, part of Teledyne Technologies. The new generation will involve several groups within Teledyne Imaging, focused on the development, fabrication, and supply of CMOS detectors and cameras.

TheGroup President of Teledyne Digital Imaging, Edwin Roks said that he is excited to launch this new initiative which is a natural extension of our legacy of sensor and camera development in both CCD and CMOSand is designed to meet the needs of emerging markets and applications. He said that the new initiative also represents the company’s strength across several business units from sensor design to cameras and system interface.

The new lineup will fulfil the increasing demands for higher-performing sensortechnology by combining essential elements of both CCD and CMOS sensors. The new generation will be distinctly different from anything currently available on the market. The customers are looking for the optimal combination of resolution, pixel size, sensitivity and speed which Teledyne will provide them with the new designs. The new lineup will include imaging formats up to 66 megapixels, quantum efficiency up to 95%, as well as ultra-low noise and high-speed readout.

The new generation of sensors will be a combined effort of multiple groups at Teledyne Digital Imaging segment with over five decades of experience in advanced CCD and CMOS detector and camera technologies. The company said that the first sensor and camera prototypes will be available in the fourth quarter of 2021, with full-scale production in 2022.
