Custom CMOS Sensors

Teledyne Imaging is a leading provider of custom image sensors for performance critical space science, Earth observation and ground astronomy applications. We collaborate closely with our partners and customers, taking full responsibility for the entire supply chain, from design, including a variety of package options, to delivery. We offer back thinned, COTS+ and space qualified CMOS image sensors, with unparalleled performance in terms of sensitivity, radiation tolerance and low power consumption.

Our CMOS image sensors capabilities include:

  • Proven CMOS pixel designs
  • Very large pixel sizes with low lag
  • Snap shot pixels
  • High dynamic range
  • Very low noise analogue and digital outputs
  • Radiation hard design blocks
  • Optimised for visible/NIR or for use in EUV/UV, thanks to Teledyne e2v’s back-thinning technology
  • COTS+, tailored qualification and space qualification
