Sony Semiconductor Solutions is continuing the current trend of offering sensors with better performance in smaller packaging. IMX536, IMX546, and IMX566 are the latest 4th generation 2/3-type format CMOS sensors using Pregius STM technology. With 8.1 megapixels, versions are available for monochrome and for colour images (RGB).
Sony Semiconductor Solutions has again broadened its image sensor portfolio and provided a new sensor model for machine vision to mass production. The IMX392 using Sony’s Pregius Global Shutter sensor technology provides 2.3 Megapixels, and runs at 167 fps @10 bits or 200 fps @ 8 bit. This imager is a perfect fit for high speed applications in Quality Inspection, Factory Automation and Traffic.
The IMX250MZR image sensor from Sony Semiconductor has received the "inVISION Top Innovation Award" 2019. The prize, which has been awarded by the trade journal inVISION since 2015, honors ten products each year that have proven to be particularly trend-setting or innovative. Sony’s IMX250 is the first sensor with an on-chip polarizer to minimize system complexity and improve extinction ratio and incident angle dependence.
Sony Semiconductor Solutions has recently upgraded its portfolio of image sensors for high-end Machine Vision and ITS applications. The 2nd generation CMOS Global Shutter sensors with Pregius™ technology, the IMX387, IMX367 and IMX342, come with resolutions between 16 and 31 Megapixels, speeds up to 56fps at full resolution and equipped with Sony’s SLVS-EC high-speed interface running up to 19Gbps. The three share a pixel pitch of 3.45µm, and provide excellent performance and high sensitivity.
The launch of the SONY PREGIUS™ series in late 2013 marked a milestone in the history of image sensors.
Continuing the trend started with IMX174 and IMX249, Sony releases the first variants of the 2nd-generation Pregius IMX250 and IMX252 – the IMX264 and IMX265 – with functionality targeted but not limited to the intelligent traffic surveillance market.
