Ariane Le Bon, marketing manager for low-noise imaging at Teledyne e2v, says, “We are very proud to release OnyxMax, which has been specifically designed to deliver high performance in challenging low-light conditions. This sensor performs significantly better than general purpose image sensors that generally lose contrast in the NIR. OnyxMax performs impressively in these conditions and has been very well received by defense, commercial, and scientific markets.”

OnyxMax features 1.3 MP (1,280 x 1,024) and is available in monochrome, as standard, and with CFA arrangements available on request. It has a 10 x 10 µm pixel, designed with Teledyne’s new cutting-edge HiRho proprietary technology, which enables outstanding near-infrared (NIR) sensitivity and spatial resolution with quantum efficiency (QE) of 58%, and MTF of 63% at 850 nm wavelength. OnyxMax also provides an SNR of 10 dB at less than 2 mLux and at 60 frames per second, and operates in rolling and global shutter modes, providing 75 dB of linear dynamic range. It also has a patented on-chip HDR mode capable of handling scene dynamics up to 100 dB.
