C-RED 2

VERY HIGH SPEED ULTRA LOW DARK SCIENTIFIC InGaAs INFRARED CAMERA

 


This project is supported by the “Investments for the future” program and the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur Region, in the frame of the CPER

THEORY OF OPERATION

C-RED 2 is a revolutionary ultra high speed low noise Short Wave Infrared camera, able to run at 600 FPS with less than 30 electrons readout noise.
To achieve this performance, C-RED 2 integrates a 640 x 512 InGaAs PIN Photodiode detector with 15 μm pixel pitch for high resolution, which embeds an electronic shutter with integration pulses shorter than 5 μs.

C-RED 2 offers dark optimization for long exposure times up to 60 seconds and High Dynamic Range: 93 dB and true 16 bits.

Designed for high-end low light SWIR applications, C-RED 2 offers new opportunities for science, research and industry.
