The NightVista® M611-05 camera incorporates Intevac’s proprietary ISIE11 Electron Bombarded Active Pixel Sensor (EBAPS®) for extreme low light sensitivity. The camera offers a 1600 x 1200 pixel UXGA resolution with a 60 Hz frame rate and can be configured for either rolling or snapshot shutter at the factory.
The M611-05 camera integrates a high voltage power supply (HVPS), temperature sensor, and flash memory to store image correcting parameters, as well as additional supporting electronics. The photons from the scene are focused onto the photocathode and the resulting photoelectrons are accelerated across a vacuum gap and proximity-focused on the back-illuminated CMOS anode to produce digital image intensified (DI2) video with very low noise.
With Intevac’s patented low halo technology and automatic gain control (AGC), the NightVista® M611-05 is highly effective operating in extreme low light conditions and in limited day mode without the customary halo associated with analog night vision devices.
