BAE Fairchild Imaging presents its sCMOS 2.0 imager at Photonics West show in San Francisco. The 4.2MP SCI2020 sensor is supposed to be available in June 2014. Here is its flyer scan:

My first impressions:

  • 3% RMS PRNU is quite high for such a large pixel. Not clear why it's that high.
  • 30,000e- full well over 2e- read noise does not make 87db DR, like the table states. May be achieved at slower speeds when the read noise is lower
  • -0.4V supply voltage is used for Tx gate bias during integration, I guess.

Thanks to BP for the info!
