New Gpixel BSI 16.8M CMOS Image Sensor GSENSE4040BSI for High-end Scientific.

15th September 2020, Changchun, China — Gpixel announces a new backside illuminated (BSI) 16.8M resolution (4096 x 4096) CMOS image sensor, GSENSE4040BSI, with 9 μm × 9 μm pixels and an optical area of 36.8mm x 36.8mm.



An intra-scene dynamic range of 85 dB is achieved by dual-gain 12bit HDR read out mode, together with a 39 ke– full well capacity and 2.3 e– readout noise. 18 pairs of LVDS channels are used to output data at a maximum frame rate of 24 fps.

GSENSE4040BSI is pin compatible with the existing GSENSE4040FSI sensor, but has enhanced imaging performance. A summary of key imaging specifications for the new GSENSE4040BSI sensor can be found at Gpixel’s product website, https://www.gpixel.com/.

Purchase orders of prototype sample and evaluation board can be placed today and shipment will be in October 2020.


Gpixel will keep expanding the BSI sensor series and offer a broad portfolio of products suitable for scientific applications. The table below lists the main specifications of sensors in the current GSENSE BSI portfolio.
