Low Light Level CCD Technology (L3 Technology) from E2V
An interesting new development from E2V that can give fast-readout and sub-electron noise.
CCD65 : TV style sensor , active area 11.5 x 8.6 mm, 576 x 288 pixels.
CCD60 : WFS style sensor, 128 x 128 pixels. Now available thinned.
CCD87: 512 x 512 pixel thick device with 16um pixels
CCD97: Thinned version of CCD87.
