Andor Technology plc, a leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, launched its Zyla 5.5 megapixel Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera. Designed for research and OEM usage, Zyla sCMOS offers 100 fps frame rate, rolling and snapshot (global) shutter modes and ultra-low noise performance, in a light, compact and cost-effective design.
Zyla achieves down to 1.2 electron rms read noise and can read out the 5.5 megapixel sensor at a sustained 100 fps through a ‘10-tap’ Camera Link interface. A highly cost-effective ‘3-tap’ version is also available, offering up to 30 fps. Comprehensive on-head FPGA real-time data processing ensures superior image quality and quantitative stability.
Thermoelectrically cooled to 0C in up to 35C ambient, Zyla sits alongside Andor’s unique -40C vacuum cooled Neo sCMOS camera, widening the Andor sCMOS portfolio to ensure a viable technical and commercial solution to all research and OEM application and design requirements. Furthermore, a board level version of Zyla is available to facilitate more flexible OEM integration.
