Eastman Kodak Company has released the Kodak KAI-16000 Image Sensor, a high-resolution interline transfer CCD image sensor. Building on Kodak’s robust CCD technology, the KAI-16000 is a 35mm optical format 16-Megapixel CCD targeted at the industrial, scientific, aerial, and security markets. The sensor allows camera manufacturers to improve system throughput by utilising a wider field of view while also enhancing image quality.
It is designed for manufacturers of cameras serving the machine vision, aerial imaging, and security industries. The KAI-16000 allows these companies to build advanced imaging systems that capture a wider field of view without sacrificing image quality. This wider field of view improves overall system throughput allowing automated optical inspection systems to increase the number of parts inspected per hour.
The sensor’s high resolution helps ensure that images achieve high image quality for aerial and security applications. Other key features in the KAI-16000 include electronic shutter, progressive scan readout, two 30MHz high-speed outputs allowing for 3fps and a combination of low noise and high sensitivity for excellent dynamic range.
