Teledyne e2v, part of the Teledyne Imaging group, stated today that it will continue its role as a long-term partner in the development, fabrication, and supply of CCD detectors to the high science market – including space exploration, Earth observation, and ground-based scientific endeavours in the fields of microscopy, spectroscopy and astronomy.
As a longstanding supplier to the European Space Agency (ESA), NASA, ESO, and JAXA, e2v understands well the required diligence of delivering science-level visible detection to an environment where detectors and systems simply must work.
Miles Adcock, President of space and quantum at e2v commented, “It is incredible to think how the invention of the CCD more than 50-years ago would lead not only to a multi-billion-dollar-a-year imaging industry but also enable the discovery of distant worlds, and provide the improved understanding of life-sciences that we enjoy today.”
While other technology companies have migrated to CMOS technology over continuing development of CCD technology, Teledyne Imaging, through its European business, e2v, and with Teledyne DALSA’s foundry in Bromont, Canada, will continue to supply high quality, mission critical CCD detectors to enable the most demanding of imaging applications. In addition, the group will continue to invest in complementary technologies such as CMOS, x-ray, spectroscopy, and infrared technologies, providing a well-balanced set of business lines to address a growing customer base across existing and emerging markets.
