Ben Roberts, VP Marketing and Sales at Sunex, has chosen the following lenses especially for FRAMOS Embedded Vision customers.

ben-sunex"These lenses are the latest offerings from Sunex which combines not only state-of-the-art features such as athermalization, ultra-low F/#, and HDR technology. They are targeted at the newest classes of sensors from the major manufacturers, including 1/2.7” and 1/2.8” formats, as well as 1/1.8” and 1/1.7” formats. These lenses also leverage Sunex’s “platform” or “family” lens concept.  The DSL14x series of lenses have a range of FOVs focused on the 1/2.7” class sensors, with 4K resolution, high dynamic range, environmental stability, and ultra-low F/1.4 aperture. Similarly, the 16x series of lenses are 4K, F/1.6 for 1/1.7” class HDR sensors. The DSL266 and DSL255 are 4K fisheye lenses suitable for these same sensors, incorporating low F/#, high performance, and very short TTLs."
