pco.dicam C8 UHS
8-channel intensified sCMOS camera

The pco.dicam C8 UHS combines 8 ultra-fast 18 mm high-quality image intensifiers in a fully integrated 8-channel sCMOS camera system. The light of a single optical input is equally distributed to 8 image intensifiers with 2.5 ns shortest gating.

Each channel can detect single photons at full 2.3 MPixel resolution. With zero ns interframing time, this corresponds to a burst rate of 400,000,000 fps. All optical elements deployed for the beam splitting and guidance are adopted from the very successful pco.dicam C4 design.  

With full 2.3 MPixel resolution, you have a maximum of 1144 fps available. This equals 5.3 GByte/s of sustained image data rate. To transmit this huge data rate in real time, you can use the pco.dicam C8’s eight optical CLHS ports (80G fiber).

Let our decades of research and development in intensified and sCMOS camera technology benefit your application!
