Gpixel Expands Portfolio For High Throughput Large Field of View Scientific Imaging with the GSENSE6510BSI Image Sensor


May 13, 2024, Changchun, China – Gpixel announces the GSENSE6510BSI backside illuminated CMOS image sensor for microscopy and other high-throughput scientific imaging applications.


GSENSE6510BSI is a 3200 x 3200 (10.2 MP) resolution image sensor with industry-standard 6.5 μm2 pixel and large 29.4 mm diagonal for increased throughput in microscopy applications compared to 19 mm sCMOS devices. With a peak QE of 95% and read noise of 0.7 e- median, the sensor achieves exceptional signal-to-noise in extreme low light applications.


The sensor offers five imaging modes. In 12-bit mode, the sensor delivers 62.3 dB of dynamic range with a read noise floor or 1.3 e- at 88 fps. In 11-bit HDR mode, the sensor uses dual-gain readout to achieve 78.8 dB of dynamic range with a read noise of 1.8 e- at the same 83 fps. Additionally, the sensor offers two high-speedmodes, an 8-bit mode reaching 500 fps and an 11-bit mode reaching 166fps. A 12-bit low noise mode achieves 0.7 e- read noise.

“With its combination of large field of view and high frame rate, the GSENSE6510BSI can take advantage of the trend toward larger FOV microscopes to capture more data per frame, and output that data at up to 69.12 Gbpsto maximize throughput.” says Wim Wuyts, Gpixel’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The GSENSE6510BSI is a perfect complement to the smaller-pixel GSENSE3243BSI sensor announced in January, allowing us to provide a broad range of solutions for the biosciences market.”

GSENSE6510BSI is a monochrome, rolling shutter CMOS image sensor with global reset, and features on-chip analog and digital temperature sensors, on chip SPI control, and support for a low dark current mode for longer exposures. Image data is read out via up to 72 LVDS channels and vertical windowing is supported for increased frame rate at lower resolution. Channel multiplexing is supported to reduce the number of output channels to 24 or 12, simplifying the hardware design.The sensor available in a 284-pin LGA ceramic package with removable glass lid.
