Lens Assemblies

Universe Optics makes custom lenses for a wide variety of different uses, including medical, industrial, military and scientific uses. Included in our range of products are CCD / CMOS lens assemblies. The CCD and CMOS lens assemblies work great with miniature camera applications. There are multiple different formats in which the assemblies are available, including 2/3″ and 1/4″, with many different focal lengths.

Along with those varieties, universeoptics.com also offers pinhole lenses for CCD systems. This provides you with excellent wide angle viewing. Our CCD/CMOS lens assemblies are excellent for surveillance, barcode scanning, machine vision, medical systems and photography.

CCD imaging, which stands for charge-coupled device sees an increase in light sensitivity compared to other types of film. For this reason, many of the exposure times are going to be shorter, or greatly reduced from the times that may be more familiar. CCD imaging provides quick processing of images. As soon as it is taken, the CCD image can be reviewed right away. The advanced image processing technology within CCD imaging and image sensors have made them highly sought after in recent years for their quick photograph turn-around time. CCD technology and lenses are used for a wide range of different uses including in telescopes, photography, and film.

CMOS, which stands for complementary metal-oxcide semiconductor, is an excellent option for a wide range of different types of lenses and photography. CMOS sensors have a number of different transistors located next to it, which means that the sensitivity of the CMOS chip is going to be much lower than CCD imaging, which is one of the big differences between the two. Unlike CCD’s, CMOS technologies often consume far less power as well. CCD sensors have been shown to consume up to 100 times more power than CMOS technology. The CMOS chips can also be fabricated much more easily, with most of the tools being available on any silicone production line, which has helped them to gain a lot of popularity in recent years.

Universe Optics provides the highest quality of CCD and CMOS lens assemblies. Both types of lenses have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for a good reason – they provide high quality pictures and have a number of different benefits to each of them. It is important before a project begins to fully understand the uses and benefits of each. The engineers at Universe Optics can help design the custom project to fit any needs.
