A CCD-based design kit for OEM engineers seeking a turnkey set-up for convenient and reliable evaluations for spectroscopy and spectrophotometer applications is available from Hamamatsu. The kit contains a highly-sensitive CCD detector head, a 12- or 16-bit A/D converter, LabVIEW drivers, and cable assemblies for an easy-to-use, ready-to-run tool. The scientific-grade CCDs feature low dark current, low readout noise, wide dynamic range, and 90% quantum efficiency at 600 nm. Results can be displayed as a 2-D image or in-line binning mode.
