CCD Cameras White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Technical Note: Warm Or Hot Pixels: Explanation And Methods To Replace Them
    8/18/2008
    The Technical term warm or hot pixel describes a CCD characteristic that can be observed when long exposure times are used (generally >3s, although this can vary from chip to chip).
  2. Technical Note: Overview On Noise Sources In A CCD Camera System
    8/18/2008
    Noise is an unwanted signal, either contained in the relevant light signal or added to it by the imaging process. Noise prevents accurate measurement and evaluation of the light signal distribution (image). Noise usually comes from three main sources.
  3. Technical Note: How To Understand Dynamic Range And The Influence On Imaging Applications
    8/18/2008
    The dynamic or dynamic range of a CCD-camera system is a widely used term to characterize the ability of a camera system to measure or image light/dark differences.
  4. The Evolution Of Digital Imaging: From CCD To CMOS

  6. White Paper: CCD / CMOS Hybrid FPA For Low Light Level Imaging
    9/22/2006
    We present a CCD / CMOS hybrid focal plane array (FPA) for low light level imaging applications. The hybrid approach combines the best of CCD imaging characteristics (e.g. high quantum efficiency, low dark current, excellent uniformity, and low pixel cross talk) with the high speed, low power and ultra-low read noise of CMOS readout technology
