“Stacked Pixel” Technology brings High Performance for Miniaturized Embedded Vision - The newly developed Pregius S line is the 4th generation of Sony CMOS image sensors incorporating Pregius™ technology. The Pregius S reaches higher performance in a smaller package with stacked image sensor technology that is based on Sony’s proprietary Global Shutter function, and a back-illuminated pixel structure. This technology allows smart embedded applications in industrial vision to benefit from imaging performance that is improved by 1.7X, while the form factor of sensor design is reduced by 40 percent. First samples of Sony’s new Pregius S line will be available from global vision partner FRAMOS®.
The fourth FRAMOS Tech Days conference will be held from May 22 to 23 in Munich, Germany, and will offer the ideal platform for vision system developers to share information and exchange ideas. This conference will feature exclusive workshop presentations by Sony Semiconductor Solutions, ON Semiconductor, Intel®, SocioNext, and FRAMOS AI about current vision developments, new products and technologies, and, future trends and innovations. The conference will focus on Embedded Vision, 3D imaging, and a broad variety of leading-edge applications.
After having revolutionized vision-based inspection with award-winning global shutter IMX250 image sensor with Polarsens™ technology, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has recently launched a new on-chip polarizer, the higher resolution IMX253MZR/MYR CMOS Global Shutter sensor. The 1.1” type format sensor brings a 12.37 Megapixels resolution with a 3.45 µm pixel size and four-directional polarizer directly applied to the photodiode of the image sensor chip. The IMX253 with Polarsens™ technology reaches frame rates of 64fps at 10 bits. The polarization sensor targets various industrial applications where visibility and sensing are difficult.
Select Intel® and Sony products can now be ordered directly from the new FRAMOS web store. Quick access to directly available vision technology is offered by this global vision partner. The new web store can be accessed at shop.framos.com with plans to extend it further with product lines targeting Embedded Vision applications in the future.
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.
Leading global imaging provider FRAMOS will be presenting its image sensor portfolio at the Image Sensors Europe Conference in London, UK, March 13-14, 2019. FRAMOS will be providing information on the latest advances in sensor technology and presenting the latest models from Sony Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor. Pyxalis, FRAMOS’ partner for custom sensors, will also show its portfolio at the venue.
Sony Semiconductor Solutions recently launched its new IMX335 image sensor for security applications and select industrial and factory automation type applications. Available from global imaging expert FRAMOS, the 1/2.8" imager offers a resolution of 5 megapixels at a pixel size of 2µm. This sensor has a back side illuminated pixel architecture providing high sensitivity with frame rates of up to 60 frames per second through a MIPI interface which provides excellent image quality and speed needed for embedded vision integration.
The leading global imaging provider, FRAMOS, will present its Embedded Vision portfolio at the embedded world show in Nuremberg, Germany, February 26 - 28, 2019. The embedded world show is the leading international trade fair for embedded systems. In hall 3A, booth 749, FRAMOS presents its broad portfolio of components and services that support customers in integrating imaging and vision solutions into their applications.
For the second time, the popular FRAMOS Tech Days event will be held in North America on February 07, 2019 in San Francisco, CA. Happening on the last day of Photonics West Show (Feb 2-7), FRAMOS Tech Days features exclusive presentations from leading embedded vision technology experts from SONY, INTEL, XILINX, the Embedded Vision Alliance and Pyxalis, and will be discussing current vision development and future innovations. FRAMOS Tech Days Europe will take place in Munich on May 22-23, 2019.
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.
Sony Corporation expands its series of OLED Microdisplays. The new Sony ECX339A OLED Microdisplay features top-of-class UXGA resolution and achieves the world’s smallest pixel pitch of 6.3µm plus high-speed frame rates up to 240fps. the new ECX339A is a 0.5”-type of display and reaches the highest resolution in its class, with 1600x1200 pixels UXGA. By leveraging Sony's OLED display and miniaturization technology, the ECX339A achieves the same level of low-power operation as its predecessors, but with resolution factor 1.6.
