Abstract
SICam is a low noise microprocessor-based digital instrumentation camera developed to meet the versatile performance requirements of many scientific and automated vision applications. SICam's unique features allow dynamic control and monitoring in imaging applications including analytical measurement, low light imaging, and spectroscopy. Camera performance is optimized around a new large format, low noise, 512 X 512 CID image sensor incorporating square 28 micrometers X 28 micrometers pixels. The LN2 cooled camera outputs 14-bit digital pixel data which can be extracted randomly and non-destructively from individual pixels, multiple sub-arrays, or from the entire imager. CID's have the unique capability to skim accumulated pixel charge and/or non-destructively read pixel information, enabling the system user to monitor events and dynamically adapt application exposure in real- time for the entire array or individual pixels. Non-destructive readout is also used to extend linear dynamic range. The system operates from PC/AT-compatible platforms.
