LTN4323 Fairchild : the ultimate sensor we are looking for ?

Post by XS_MAN » Thu Feb 07, 2019 8:38 pm

Hi Sam,
Hi Chad,
Hi Sean,
Hi all,

Happy Chinese new year to all ! ;)

Today is a great day with the annoucement of 2 news Fairchild sensors.
The monochrome version LTN4323 has very impressive characteristics on the paper :

http://image-sensors-world.blogspot.com ... os-30.html

To summarize :

- BSI Monochrome sCMOS sensor
- Medium size with 4/3" format, 10.3 Mpixels
- comfortable 4.6 microns pixels,
- Rolling or Global shutter,
- Low Gain / High Gain Mode,
- Impressive 0.7e- read noise ! As good as for IMX224/IMX385,
- Great dynamic range : 87 dB,
- High frame rate : 120fps at full frame !!

Of course, a lot of questions that need answers :

- Is it a switchable Rolling/Global Shutter ? Or 2 different sensor references ?
- "Amp Glow" level ?
If necessary could it be reduced by a circuit ?
- QE curve,
- Banding ?
- Thermal noise at -30?C ?
- Is FPN constant ?
- And of course the price ??? Especially the price compared to Sony IMX428 ??

Does the dream will come true ??

Hi Sam,
Hi Chad,
Hi Sean,
Hi all,

As there is still no credible medium size (near 4/3) monochrome sensor on the market,
please could it evaluate this sensor ?
What would be the price of a cooled ZWO camera with this sensor ?
Many thanks.

Best.
