A PImMS 2 chip
A bonded PImMS 2 chip


The second generation of PImMS features a significantly enlarged sensor at 324×324 pixels.

Other new circuitry increases the possible rate at which the experimental period can be repeated. Extra digital taps have been added along the of the output register so that data can be read more quickly. This feature pushes the data rate beyond what the maximum for the existing USB2 interface, so to take advantage of this, some further development to implement a CameraLink system would be required.
