The C10000-601 and C10000-701 series TDI (time delay integration) cameras from Hamamatsu (Bridgewater, NJ) feature back-thinned CCD image sensors with 4096 horizontal pixels and 128 TDI stages (vertical pixels). Each pixel is 12 × 12 μm. Due to their back-thinned structure, the TDI-CCDs feature high sensitivity from 200nm to 1100nm with approximately 90% quantum efficiency in the 600-700nm region. The sensors also feature multiple output ports (taps) to enable high-speed line rates for high-speed imaging. There are three cameras available. The C10000-601 features 8 taps, 50 kHz maximum line rate, 800:1 dynamic range, and an 8-bit/12-bit selectable A/D converter. The C10000-701A has 16 taps, 100 kHz maximum line rate, 256:1 dynamic range, and an 8-bit A/D converter. The C10000-701B camera features 16 taps, 100 kHz maximum line rate, 800:1 dynamic range, and a 12-bit A/D converter. Photonics West Booth #1313
