Neo camera

Andor Technology has introduced several performance enhancements to its Neo camera, based on next-generation scientific CMOS (sCMOS) technology. Key enhancements include faster sustained frame rates, better image quality, hardware pixel binning, flexible region of interest capability (with single pixel granularity), accurate timestamp and improved global (snapshot) exposure performance.

Neo’s 5.5 Megapixel sCMOS sensor, with 6.5µm pixel size, achieves a one electron read noise at 30fps. The innovative dual amplifier architecture facilitates a wide dynamic range of 30,000:1. Neo delivers deep vacuum cooling down to -400C, critical to maintaining the low noise advantage and a minimal pixel blemish across all exposure conditions.

The camera offers comprehensive FPGA intelligence for excellent image quality and quantitative stability, coupled with a 4GB on-head image memory. This means the camera can acquire extended kinetic bursts at frame rates faster than the hard drive write speeds, overcoming the need for expensive and complex PC solutions.
