CMOS Image Sensors for Space and Ground-based Astronomy

Teledyne e2v is a leading provider of custom CMOS image sensors for Ground-based AstronomyEarth observation and Space Science applications.

Our technology has been chosen for performance-critical applications:

  • CANOPUSTM image sensor (CIS111) for ESA’s and EUMETSAT’s Meteosat Third Generation – MTG satellites,
  • VEGATM image sensor (CIS113) for ASIAA’s Transneptunian Automated Occultation Survey (TAOS II),
  • SIRIUSTM image sensor (CIS115) for ESA’s JUICE mission,
  • CIS119 for ESA’s and EUMETSAT’s Meteorological Operational (MetOp) second generation satellites.

We collaborate closely with our partners and customers, taking full responsibility for the entire supply chain, from design (including a variety of package options) to delivery. We offer back-thinned and space qualified CMOS image sensors, with unparalleled performance in terms of sensitivity, high radiation tolerance and low power consumption.

Our space qualified CMOS image sensors capabilities include:

  • Proven CMOS pixel designs
  • Very large pixel sizes with low lag
  • Snap shot pixels
  • High dynamic range
  • Very low noise analogue and digital outputs
  • Radiation hard design blocks
  • Optimised for visible/NIR or for use in EUV/UV, thanks to Teledyne e2v’s back-thinning technology
