    About the Kodak KAF-09000 Sensor...

    Combining high resolution with outstanding sensitivity, the Kodak KAF-09000 image sensor has been specifically designed to meet the needs of next-generation low cost digital radiography and scientific imaging systems. The high sensitivity available from 12-micron square pixels combine with a low noise architecture to allow system designers to improve overall image quality, or to relax system tolerances to achieve lower cost.



    The excellent uniformity of the KAF-09000 image sensor improves overall image integrity by simplifying image corrections, while integrated anti-blooming protection prevents image bleed from over-exposure in bright areas of the image. To simplify device integration, the KAF-09000 image sensor uses the same pin-out and package as the KAF-16801 image sensor.
