The QSI 616 model camera employs a 1.6mp Kodak full-frame CCD image sensor with microlens technology. With high quantum efficiency, wide dynamic range, dual read rates, and internal 5 or 8-position color filter wheels the QSI 616 is ideally suited to a broad range of demanding scientific, medical, astronomical, and industrial imaging applications.

The compact design of the QSI 600 Series allows the 616 to set a new benchmark for cost and size in a high performance, full-featured scientific CCD camera. With optional features and upgradeability, the QSI 616 can be tailored to fit your needs today and in the future.

The 616 camera system is supported by industry leading image acquisition software plus a full camera control API is available for creating custom Windows or Linux applications.

The standard 616 model camera employs a Kodak KAF-1603ME 1.6 megapixel Enhanced Response full-frame CCD image sensor with microlens technology. The KAF-1603ME sensor has a photoactive array of 1536W x 1024H pixels. It has excellent quantum efficiency between 350nm and 1000nm with significant enhancement at the blue end of the spectrum. Peak QE approaches 80%. Low dark current and high pixel charge capacity result in a dynamic range exceeding 76db. The sensor employs a true two-phase charge transfer technology with a transparent gate that significantly increases optical response compared to traditional front illuminated full frame sensors. Micro lenses cover the surface of the CCD to focus the light through the transparent gate to further increase optical response.
