ON Semiconductor has added four new high resolution devices to its PYTHON family of CMOS image sensors. Now totaling nine separate devices that provide resolutions ranging from VGA to over 25 megapixels (MP), this high performance family addresses the needs of general-purpose industrial imaging applications such as machine vision, inspection and motion monitoring, security, surveillance, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS).
The new PYTHON 10K, PYTHON 12K, PYTHON 16K, and PYTHON 25K image sensors combine excellent imaging performance with high-speed output architectures that meet and exceed the bandwidths available from popular industry computer interfaces such as USB 3.1, CameraLink, CoaXPress, and 10GigE. The new devices share a common high-performance 4.5 µm pixel that leverages the company’s patented in-pixel CDS (ipCDS) technology to enable global shutter imaging with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) in a compact pixel size. Image data is accessed through 32, 16, 8, or 4 LVDS channels, each running at 720 MHz, to enable readout speeds of up to 80 fps for the 25K device. The devices are packaged in a µPGA-355 package and are available in monochrome, Bayer color, and extended near-infrared (NIR) configurations.
