The new pco.edge sCMOS camera simultaneously delivers extremely low noise, fast frame rates, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution and large field of view - all in one image.

The new pco.edge camera (with scientific CMOS image sensor) features outstanding low read out noise of 1.4 electrons (e-) rms. Even at maximum speed of 100 frames/s at full resolution of 2560 x 2160 pixel the noise is less than 2 e- rms. Moreover the pco.edge provides excellent homogeneity for both pixel response to light (PRNU, photo response non-uniformity) and dark signal pixel behaviour (DSNU, dark signal non-uniformity). This is achieved by sophisticated electronic circuit technology and firmware algorithms.
The photograph above shows a comparison of a scientific grade CCD and the new pco.sCMOS image sensor under similar weak illumination conditions. The superior read out noise and dynamic of pco.edge over CCD is clear, and there is none of the smear that is present in the CCD image.
