Frequently Asked Questions
Image sensors are used in a wide range of applications, including imaging, machine vision, spectroscopy, and more. They are the backbone of cameras used for these applications, allowing for the capture of high-quality images.
FindLight.net offers a range of image sensors, including CMOS, CCD, and InGaAs sensors. Each type of sensor has its own unique characteristics and advantages, allowing you to choose the best option for your specific application.
When choosing an image sensor, important factors to consider include sensor resolution, pixel size, sensitivity, readout noise, and more. The specific application and imaging requirements will also impact your decision.
Yes, there are specialized image sensors available for low-light imaging, such as back-illuminated sensors, and high-speed imaging, such as time-of-flight sensors. Browse our selection to find the best option for your needs.
CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) sensors are two different types of image sensors. CCD sensors are typically used for high-quality imaging applications, while CMOS sensors are more commonly used in consumer electronics. CCD sensors generally have higher sensitivity and lower noise, but are more expensive than CMOS sensors.
Some manufacturers on FindLight.net may offer custom image sensor options. Please contact the specific supplier to discuss your specific needs and we can help you find the right solution. Please feel free to use the "Contact Supplier" button located on every product page. You can use that to communicate with the respective supplier of that product.
Monochrome sensors capture images in shades of gray, while color sensors capture images in full color. Color sensors have a filter array overlaid on top of the sensor, which allows for the capture of red, green, and blue color channels.
The pixel size of an image sensor refers to the size of each individual pixel on the sensor. Smaller pixel sizes generally result in higher resolution images, but may also result in lower sensitivity.
Choosing the right image sensor for your application depends on a variety of factors, including required resolution, sensitivity, readout noise, and more. Reach out to the suppliers to take advantage of their in-house experts to answer your specific questions.
