ON Semiconductor ("OnSemi"/ formerly TrueSense/Kodak) has announced last order acceptance for its CCD sensors on 18.3.2020, and will subsequently cease production and close its plant in Rochester/USA (here the original announcement). A list of affected cameras can be found here. SVS-Vistek is always available to help affected customers find the best possible solution for the long-term viability of their applications and systems.
current CCD solutions
According to the current state of technology, direct "drop-in replacement" for our cameras with OnSemi CCD sensors is not always possible. Based on the specific requirements of your application, we would like to discuss an individual solution with you. For example, this could be an alternative product with state-of-the-art CMOS technology or another solution, keeping the effort for you as limited as possible. In this case, an agreement of a "last-time-buy" framework contract for the cameras used in your projects with discontinued sensors is also negotiable.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. Our team and your personal contact person will try to agree with you asap on a suitable approach to secure your projects in the best feasible way. We will prepare all necessary information and contact you as soon as possible.
