The Lince6M5 is a single chip, fully digital, high speed CMOS active pixel sensor. It is a very versatile sensor that can operate in a large range of applications. It is able to meet the challenge of a wide range of conditions including low noise, high dynamic range surveillance, to high speed, slow motion analysis, as well as high resolution machine vision applications.
A Versatile Sensor That Can Operate in a Large Range of Applications
Lince6M5 uses a fast 6.5 MP CMOS active pixel image sensor that allows for High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as both global and rolling electronic shutter features. By using active CMOS pixels with pinned photodiodes the sensor array can deliver high image quality whilst maintaining the size, cost, and integration advantage of the CMOS technology.
The pixel response can be altered to cope with either linear light response with 58 dB and 62 dB dynamic range for global and rolling electronic shutters, respectively, or high dynamic range response with more than 100 dB dynamic range.
A simple four wire standard Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) allows ease of programming for all the features and CIS functions; the device also includes 24 LVDS high speed outputs that transfers image data at up to 14 Gbit/sec, and two additional LVDS ports for clock recovery and image synchronization.
The whole system runs with an external clock of 9.6 MHz and all required timing and reference voltages are internally generated, thus reducing external component requirements. For very low power dissipation it can be set to power down.
Designed for maximum flexibility, Lince6M5 is the perfect candidate for almost every sensing application.
