High-Performance OnyxMax CMOS Image Sensors for Extreme Low Light Conditions

OnyxMax, the next generation of the popular Onyx 1.3M low-light CMOS image sensor, is designed for extremely low light conditions down to 1 mLux. The combination of sensitivity and image resolution increases its range, allowing even small objects to be detected in harsh conditions. 

OnyxMax features 1.3 MP (1,280 x 1,024) and is available in monochrome, as standard, and with CFA arrangements available on request. It has a 10 x 10 µm pixel, designed with Teledyne's HiRho proprietary technology, which enables outstanding Near Infrared (NIR) sensitivity and spatial resolution with Quantum Efficiency (QE) of 58% and MTF of 63% at 850 nm wavelength.

OnyxMax also provides an SNR of 10 dB at less than 2 mLux and at 60 fps and operates in rolling and global shutter modes, providing 75 dB of linear dynamic range. It also has a patented on-chip HDR mode which is capable of handling scene dynamics up to 100 dB.

OnyxMax is ideal for a wide range of applications including science, defense, traffic cameras, broadcast, surveillance, border control, and astronomy.
