The SED-100A holographic waveguide display enhances customized hardware AR development for industrial applications with high precision and quality.
Sony Semiconductor Solutions launches a new image sensor for compact security applications. The IMX415 combines the STARVIS™ technology for excellent visibility in low light surveillance with new “Prior Low Noise Circuit” (PLNC) technology for better SNR. The IMX415 is a very compact candidate for low light applications in security and for challenging environments in industrial and factory automation.
The fourth FRAMOS® Tech Days event was a complete success - 96% of the participants were satisfied or very satisfied with this technology platform for vision developers. Throughout the two-day event, Sony Japan, Intel, ON Semiconductor, and other FRAMOS partners were on-hand. They presented the latest technologies in the fields of image sensors and embedded vision, 3D imaging, artificial intelligence, and image processing in Munich, Germany May 22-23, 2019.
“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.
