High-performance for Extreme Low Light Conditions

Next generation low light CMOS sensor

OnyxMax™ is the next generation of Teledyne e2v’s popular Onyx 1.3M low light CMOS image sensor. This new sensor has been designed for extremely low light conditions, down to 1 mLux. The combination of sensitivity and image resolution increases its range, allowing even small objects to be detected in harsh conditions.

State-of-the-art low noise global shutter

OnyxMax features 1.3 Megapixels (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 850nm wavelength.

High image processing

OnyxMax provides an SNR of 10 dB at less than 2 mLux and at 60 fps and operates in rolling and global shutter modes, providing 75 dB of linear dynamic range. It also has a patented on-chip HDR mode which is capable of handling scene dynamics up to 100 dB. It’s high image processing throughput delivers 120 fps frame rate at 1.3M resolution
