ON SEMICONDUCTOR Model KAE-08152 Interline Transfer Electron Multiplying CCD (IT‑EMCCD) image sensor  targets extreme low-light applications such as medical and scientific imaging. Device shares the same 8.8 megapixel resolution and 4/3 optical format as existing KAE-08151, but incorporates an enhanced pixel design that doubles Quantum Efficiency for near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths such as 850nm – an enhancement which can be critical in applications such as surveillance, microscopy, and ophthalmology. Product is fully drop-in compatible with the existing device, simplifying adoption for camera manufacturers.
