5.5 MP; Pixel Size 6.5x6.5 μm; Sensor Size 16.6x14.0 mm; 100 fps (40 fps USB 3.0); 12, 16 bit; USB 3.0, Camera Link 10-tap; Read Noise 0.9 e-; 33,000:1 Dynamic Range; Rolling and True Global Shutter;

Andor's Zyla 5.5 sCMOS cameras offer high speed, high sensitivity imaging performance in a remarkably light and compact, TE cooled design. Zyla is ideally suited to many cutting-edge applications that push the boundaries of speed, offering sustained frame rate performance of up to 100 fps, faster with ROIs.

A highly cost-effective USB 3.0 version is available offering 40 fps and 0.9 e- rms read noise, representing an ideal low light 'workhorse' upgrade camera solution for both microscopy and physical science applications, in either research or OEM environments.

Zyla 5.5 cameras uniquely offer both Rolling and true Global Shutter exposure modes. This provides superior application and synchronization flexibility and the ability, through global exposure, to closely emulate the familiar ‘Snapshot’ exposure mechanism of interline CCDs.

The Andor GPU Express library has been created to simplify and optimize data transfers from camera to a CUDA-enabled NVidia Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) card to facilitate accelerated GPU processing as part of the acquisition pipeline.

Key Features:

  • 60% QE
  • 0.9 e- Read Noise for Lower Detection Limit Than Any CCD
  • Rolling and Global (Snapshot) Shutter: Maximum Exposure and Readout Flexibility
  • Snapshot for 'Interline CCD Mode' Freeze Frame Capture of Fast Moving/Changing Events.
  • Sub-Microsecond Inter-Frame Gap: Global Shutter offers Down to 100 ns Inter-Frame Gap, Ideal for PIV applications
