InGaAs camera


The C14041-10U is an InGaAs camera with sensitivity in the near infrared region from 950 nm to 1700 nm.
It has a USB 3.0 interface port which supports 14 bit image acquisition and exposure time adjustment. This makes the C14041-10U ideal for use in a wide range of applications including internal inspection of silicon wafers and devices, laser beam alignment and evaluation of solar cells. 


  • High sensitivity in the near infrared region
  • Resolution: 320 × 256 pixels
  • Low noise and high stability with cooling
  • High-image quality rolling shutter mode and the global shutter mode capable of simultaneous exposure to the entire screen mounted
  • Frame rate of approx. 216 frames/s (rolling shutter mode)


  • Internal inspections of silicon wafers and devices
  • Evaluation of solar cells
  • Evaluation and analysis of optical communication devices
  • EL/PL image acquisition


Our software provides the interface to access all of our carefully engineered camera features, from simply setting exposure to orchestrating complex triggering for multidimensional experiments.
