Waterloo, Ontario - DALSA Corporation (TSX:DSA), an international leader in high performance digital imaging and semiconductors, was pleased to present its new 48 megapixel standard product image sensor for professional photography in a presentation at the International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) in San Francisco this week. IEDM, organized by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), is the world’s premier forum for the presentation of advances in microelectronic and nanoelectronic devices.
Eric-Jan Manoury, a scientist at DALSA’s Eindhoven R&D lab, gave the presentation titled “A 36×48mm2 48M-pixel CCD imager for professional DSC applications,” highlighting not only the device’s high resolution, but the advances it delivers in increased quantum efficiency, lower noise, and higher dynamic range compared to previous generation or competitor devices.
“This scientific presentation at the IEEE IEDM international conference demonstrates once again the world leadership which DALSA continues to provide in the field of large format image sensors for professional digital still camera applications,” stated Dr. Savvas Chamberlain, CTO and Chairman of DALSA. “This is the first large image format imager with such high pixel rate (100 MHz) and with 74 dB dynamic range and 55000 electron signal capacity.”
Built on DALSA’s’ new 6 micron pixel platform, the new device is available as a standard product. With the new performance benchmarks it establishes, including superior speed, dynamic range, and angular response, it is already generating demand from customers in one of the world’s most demanding imaging applications: medium format professional digital photography.
DALSA’s image sensors led the way in professional photography’s shift to digital ten years ago, and this new device delivers even more of the performance professional photographers demand: higher throughput, exceptionally low noise, unmatched dynamic range, and better color.
