C11440-50B CMOS Board Type Life Sciences Camera from Hamamatsu

The core of the C11440-50B camera is the new scientific image sensor FL-280, an advanced CMOS detector that simultaneously achieves high resolution (2.8 megapixel), fast readout speeds (45 frames/second), and low noise (3 electrons (r.m.s.). With its small size, board-level design and simple, low-cost integration using IEEE1394b, the C11440-50B is the ideal camera for OEM scientific imaging.


  • High resolution (2.8 megapixel)
  • Fast readout speeds (45 frames/second)
  • Low noise (3 electrons (r.m.s.))
  • High dynamic range (4500:1)
  • About twice the resolution of a conventional CCD (2/3 inch, 1.3 megapixel)
  • Wider field of view than a conventional CCD (2/3 inch, 1.3 megapixel) with appropriate optics
  • High Image quality (no fixed pattern noise)
  • Excellent linearity (incoming photons vs. output signal)
  • On-chip analog gain, ideal for low-light imaging at short exposures
  • Synchronization with peripheral equipment, including external trigger functions and timing output functions


  • High-speed Ca2+ imaging
