New from Teledyne e2v is the Sapphire CMOS image sensor. This 1600 x 1200 pixel is based on their proprietary Eye-On-Si CMOS imaging technology, and is designed for any application where peak performance is required.
The device offers excellent performances in low-light conditions thanks to an innovative pixel design; with both an electronic rolling shutter, an electronic global shutter and a high-readout speed of 50/60 fps in full resolution. The chip also comes pre-installed with cutting-edge industrial machine vision application features such as multi ROI, histogram outputs and 3D range gating.
As it consumes very little power, the device can be used for battery powered hand-held applications. The device is functionally, hardware and software compatible with the 1.3 million pixel EV76C560 device.
