47 Mpixel resolution CameraLink and CoaXPress cameras

5 Sep 2017

Two new 47 megapixel (8856 × 5280 pixel) models have been added to the proven Vieworks VA series of CCD cameras. The VA-47MC and VA-47MX utilise the CameraLink medium and CoaXPress interface standards respectively. Both cameras feature the latest 47 megapixel KAI-47051 CCD imaging sensor from On Semiconductor and offer frame rates of 7 fps at full resolution for the VA-47MC and 9 fps for the VA-47MX.

The KAI-47051 Image Sensor is the world's highest resolution interline transfer CCD with a global shutter. It is designed for the most demanding inspection and surveillance applications including flat panel display inspection, electronics inspection, aerial imaging, and ground surveillance.

Based on an advanced 5.5-micron interline transfer CCD platform, the sensor features a broad dynamic range and excellent imaging performance and uniformity. The full resolution readout of up to 7 fps in the CL version and 9 fps in the CXP version is enabled through a multi-tap output architecture. A vertical overflow drain structure suppresses image blooming and enables electronic shuttering for precise exposure control.

Key features include:

  • 16 taps readout 

  • High dynamic range up to 68 dB 

  • CameraLink Medium interface up to 7 fps 

  • CoaXPress interface up to 9 fps at 12.5 Gbps using 2 channels 

  • Field upgradable firmware
  • 8/10/12 bit pixel depth
  • Excellent anti-blooming and anti-smear 

  • Flat field correction 

  • Advanced PRNU and DSNU correction 

  • Tap linearity correction 

Flat field correction gives a uniform linear image from edge to edge. The camera has user defined defect correction, programmable I/O and has advanced tap balancing to produce the highest quality images possible.
