Back Side Illuminated CMOS Sensor with extreme frame rates

The latest addition to Vision Research's groundbreaking TMX family: the Phantom TMX 5010 provides 50,725 fps at its full 1Mpx (1280 x 800) resolution. Full-featured and extremely versatile, this camera lives up to the reputation created by its fellow TMX family members.

The TMX 5010 capitalises on the same high-speed Back Side Illuminated sensor as other TMX models. With a 50Gpx/second throughput, the TMX 5010 offers significant application flexibility and other powerful features such as enhanced sensitivity and memory capabilities. The TMX 5010 when run in Region of Interest mode for higher frame rates is able to do so at higher resolutions.

The TMX 5010 also provides a FAST mode for increased frame rates. The FAST option feature allows the TMX 5010 to reach speeds of up to 1.16 million fps at reduced resolutions.

By expanding on its internationally recognised range of
Phantom cameras with the TMX camera series, Vision Research again delivers the most advanced, groundbreaking ultra highspeed imaging. Vision Research continue to lead the high speed imaging world. Designed with a backside illuminated custom CMOS sensor the TMX series produce clear, high quality images at speeds not previously possible.

Back Side Illumination Technology

BSI sensor technology maximises sensitivity for sub-microsecond exposure times as is often required in ultra high speed imaging applications. BSI is not a new technology, but has been cleverly adapted by Vision Research to work at ultra-high speeds.

BSI provides advantages when it comes to improving low light performance and dynamic range but it is difficult to design into high speed sensors because of the larger pixel size required in a high speed sensor. With Vision Research's capability to design and fabricate their own sensors they have broken new ground with the sensors in the TMX series.

Key Features
• BSI technology gives high Quantum Efficiency
• 12-bit depth
• User profiles

• 10Gb Ethernet for fast download
• Programmable I/O - Assign and define camera signals

Due to the TMX's light sensitivity and incredibly high frame rates, it makes it perfectly suited to ballistics e.g gunshot analysis or explosives etc.
Digital Image Correlation (DIC)
Digital Image Correlation is a non-contact method of observing how an object is affected by impact and vibration. It can also be used to create 3D imaging of the object to help researchers take exact measurements.
Combustion applications often have unique difficulties that need to be overcome. Aside from being exceptionally fast events they often have lighting issues as they quickly fluctuate between being very dark and very bright. Phantom cameras have features that aid researchers in dealing with these issues.
Droplet analysis or Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) or droplet analysis, is a research method that allows scientists to observe the flow of air, water, and other invisible elements. Phantom cameras are equipped with high-resolution sensors to make particle tracking simple.
