The CCD220 detector

The CCD220 detector at the core of the OCam camera has 240 x 240 pixels and has a readout noise ten times smaller than detectors in current use, making it ideal for the faint light camera systems to be used on the second generation of Very Large Telescope instruments. It was developed by the British manufacturer e2v technologies.
