High Sensitivity in Low Light
The Canon 35MMFHDXS_A CMOS sensors use new pixel and readout circuitry technologies delivering ultra-high sensitivity with a 2.76 megapixel resolution. The enormous 19µm pixels, which minimize noise and dark current and allow control over readout position and frame rate, make the 35MMFHDXS_A sensors unique in capabilities among all other CMOS sensors for low light imaging. These CMOS sensors are available in monochrome (35MMFHDXSMA) and color (35MMFHDXSCA).
Large Pixel Sizes With Minimal Noise
By using a progressively increasing electric field profile to efficiently transfer electrons off the large photodiode, Canon’s 35MMFHDXS_A CMOS sensors can effectively leverage 19µm pixels while minimizing noise. Further, proprietary designs are leveraged to minimize dark current over long exposure times. These features, combined with a full area scan frame rate of 98fps at a resolution of 2160 x 1280, enable excellent imaging in applications requiring highly sensitive capture in low light.

35MMFHDXS_A Evaluation Kit
The Canon 35MMFHDXS_A CMOS sensor will be available in an Evaluation Kit, where the sensor would be pre-installed and functioning with raw data output and a USB 3.1 (Gen 1) interface.
The evaluation kit will also include:
- Sensor board design files
- FPGA code (in source form, VHDL)
- Embedded software (in source form) to setup the sensor, acquire image data and communicate over USB 3.1 interface with a USB 3 compliant UI
- UI application (PC based) to communicate with the eval kit.
