ITL completed delivery of the "First Article" LSST STA3800 CCD sensors for the LSST project.  These 4k x 4k 10 micron pixel sensors have 16 video channels each and approximately 5 electrons read noise with a 2 second readout time. They have a peak quantum efficiency over 95% and are mechanically flat to less than 5 microns.
