RU-08 high-speed CMOS readout unit


    The unit is intended for high-speed record of continuous and pulse images from an image converter streak and frame cameras’ output as well as of images that appear at arbitrary time moments, storage of images in the internal buffer of memory and their subsequent transfer by USB interface in computer for processing. In principle, it can be used for work with a wide class of the optical images supplied to its input by means of lens optics.

Basic components: 
  • CMOS television camera (TVC) with an objective, a socket of external synchronisation and USB interface;
  • notebook;
  • cable for external syncronisation;
  • electrical or fiber-optic communicational link with a PC;
  • software.
