Gpixel announces the further expansion of its GSENSE product family with the GSENSE1516BSI, a large format BSI CMOS sensor for high-end scientific applications. The sensor is designed around Gpixel’s 15 µm rolling shutter pixel, provides 4096 x 4096 resolution (16.7 MP), and supports up to 9fps in dual gain HDR mode.

Like other sensors in the GSENSE family, the GSENSE1516BSI can read out a single exposure with two different gain settings, providing two separate images that when recombined achieve up to 90dB intra-scene dynamic range. Using the low gain channel, the sensor’s full well capacity is 134ke–, maximizing signal to noise in the bright parts of the image. Through the high gain channel, the sensor achieves a read noise of 4e–, perfect for the measurement of faint signals.

The 15 µm pixel has 95% peak QE. Engineering samples of the GSENSE1516BSI will be available for evaluation in July 2020.
