Study into the difference in imaging performance of the Texas Instruments EMCCD based imager and the sCMOS 2.0 based imager.

The Texas Instruments EMCCD is no longer in production, its’ programmed obsolescence has lead PSL/DVS to produce a new range of cameras with equivalent low light capabilities based on sub electron read out noise CMOS technology.

The results of these carefully constructed tests are showing the merits of the new camera design delivering 4x spatial resolution, 2x the acquisition speed, 16x the dynamic range whilst maintaining the same low light level sensitivity of the former EMCCD camera.
