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.

FRAMOS will also highlight the launch of their ecosystem of products designed for a modularized approach to Embedded Vision.
The SONY Semiconductor Solution Group announced the FRAMOS® warehouse in Munich, Germany, as one of three SONY certified “Excellent Warehouses” globally. The Excellent Warehouse 2017 Award dignifies the distribution quality for SONY Semiconductor products based on the distribution activities, an impeccable warehouse performance in addition to seamless management and handling.
FRAMOS® Group, a global supplier of imaging products, custom vision solutions and OEM services, has been appointed as a North American approved supplier for the Sony OLED Microdisplay product line. The OLED Microdisplay series offers a high-quality display solution for applications using micro-sized displays in industrial and consumer electronics to provide a very high picture quality.
FRAMOS® Technologies is appointed by Sony as an official distributor for their Spresense development boards in the United States. These professional developer boards, powered by Sony’s 6 core CXD5602 microcontroller, removes the effort of developing great IoT solutions within a short time to market.
VGA resolution is sufficient to solve lots of application tasks in Factory Automation and ITS, it’s the image quality and bandwidth that makes the difference and brings precise and fast inspection results. The Sony IMX426 Pregius™ 3rd generation Global Shutter CMOS image sensor provides 9µm pixel size and reaches VGA resolution with 1,449 fps@10-bit for maximized throughput in Factory Automation.
Vieworks Co. Ltd., is a leading developer of advanced digital medical imaging solutions. It is one of the pioneer companies using the recently released SLVS-EC RX IP Core for Xilinx FPGAs from global imaging expert FRAMOS®. Vieworks uses the FRAMOS’ IP Core to optimize resources and accelerate their implementation with the latest Sony CMOS sensors, and focuses on the advanced Machine Vision applications in the Asian markets.
Sunex Optics releases its first sensor module, the MOD255I, based on its 4K Miniature DSL255 SuperFishEye Lens for easy digital video device development with embedded vision. The high-resolution module provides up to 12 Megapixel resolution images and incorporates a Sony 1/2.3 type CMOS image sensor. With its high-performance, the MOD255I sensor module is the perfect component for manufacturing consumer and security devices capable of continuous video and still images.
Two new Sony industrial 4K functional camera blocks, the FCB-ER8530 and FCB-ER8550, provide QFHD resolution video from an 8.5 Megapixel back-illuminated image sensor for superb clarity and detail in applications for situational awareness, surveillance, video sharing, remote learning and content development in full 4K. These very compact cameras offer electronic image stabilization, improved night-time performance, and up to 30x equivalent optical zoom*.
OLED Micro-displays from Sony Semiconductor Solutions are cutting-edge small video displays for the brilliant reproduction of images that are especially well-suited for electronic view finders, and head-mounted devices. These very thin displays exhibit high brightness; operate at low power; and, are made from a solid Si-wafer substrate. The Sony ECX334C OLED Micro-display brings a small size, high-resolution solution at a light weight and fast response, with doubled candela output compared to previous models.
The Sony IMX397 is a very small 1/6.4” CMOS Global Shutter sensor with a pixel pitch of 3,45µm, and providing VGA resolution. It is a low noise, low power imager with a small footprint and a high-speed throughput of 240 fps at full resolution. These qualities, together with MIPI output and a compact package, make this embedded low-cost imager a perfect candidate for Factory Automation, industrial applications, and sensing.
