OCAM2K Fast low light low noise scientific camera for visible imaging

OCAM2K    Fast low light low noise scientific camera for visible imaging

OCAM²K is a high speed low noise camera able to run at 2067 FPS with subelectron readout noise.

To achieve this performance, OCAM²K uses the E2V CCD 220 EMCCD, an 8 output split frame transfert CCD. To minimize smearing, the CCD220 high speed metal buttressed clock lines are driven by OCAM²K at a speed as high as 7 Mlines/s transferring each frame in the store section in only 12 microseconds.

OCAM²K also offers an extremely low latency : 43μs between exposure and first pixel availability.
