high-speed transmission, USB3.0, superior performance
BigEye Series adopt SONY Exmor CMOS sensor as the image-picking device and USB3.0 is used as the transfer interface.
BigEye Series hardware resolutions range from 4.2M to 10.3M and come with the integrated CNC aluminum alloy housing.
BigEye Series integrated with 12 bit Ultra-fineTM Hardware Image Signal Processor Video Pipeline(Ultra-fineTM HISP VP) for Demosaic, Adjustments, Automatic Exposition, Gain Adjustment, One Push White Balance, Chrominance Adjustment, Saturation Adjustment, Gamma Correction, Luminance Adjustment, Contrast Adjustment, Bayer and finally form RAW data for 8/12 bit output. This will move the heavier burden of the processing from the PC to the Ultra-fineTM HISP VP and greatly accelerating the processing speed.
BigEye Series come with advanced video & image processing application; Providing Windows/Linux/ OSX multiple platforms SDK; Native C/C++, C#/VB.NET, DirectShow, Twain Control API;
The BigEye Series can be widely used in bright field light environment and microscope image capture and analysis with higher frame rate.

Designed with the state-of-art backside illuminated scientific CMOS technology, GSENSE2020BSI is a 4.2 Megapixel sensor with 6.5um pixel size, featuring 94% quantum efficiency and a readout noise of less than 1.2e- with correlated multi-sampling (CMS). Ideal for life science, astronomy and scientific imaging, GSENSE2020BSI also provides a solution for industrial inspection requiring superior UV sensitivity thanks to its high frame rate and global reset rolling shutter. GSENSE2020BSI is pin-compatible with GSENSE2020s and GSENSE2011s, allowing easy hardware integration with minimized development effort, and fast time-to-market.
GSENSE2020 is a 4 MP scientific CMOS image sensor with 6.5μm pitch. The sensor can operate in either rolling shutter or global shutter mode. The devices have ultra-low readout noise of 2e- in rolling shutter mode, and 6.2e- in global shutter mode. To further increase the sensitivity for low light level imaging, the devices support on-chip 2x2 binning. In addition, GSENSE2020 can be operated in standard 12bit mode with 70dB intra-scene dynamic range or in HDR mode with more than 87dB dynamic range. GSENSE2020's max frame rate is up to 376fps in 10bit global shutter mode, and the frame rate can be further enhanced by row-based ROI windowing capability.
