ON Semiconductor’s 47MP Image Sensor for Critical Industrial Inspection and Mapping Applications

ON Semiconductor, driving energy efficient innovations, is enabling new levels of performance and efficiency in critical industrial inspection and mapping applications with the KAI-47051 image sensor, the world’s highest resolution Interline Transfer CCD device.

The 47 megapixel (MP) KAI-47051 image sensor increases the resolution available for applications such as end-of-line flat panel inspection and aerial mapping by more than 50% compared to the KAI-29050 image sensor widely used in these applications today. This is achieved while retaining the CCD-level image uniformity and global shutter architecture those applications require. The new device was designed specifically to align with the growing inspection demand for higher resolution smartphones, tablets, computer monitors, and televisions; and to improve image quality and overall efficiency in surveillance applications such as aerial mapping.

The KAI-47051 builds on the success of the existing 29 MP KAI-29050 image sensor, which is widely used today in these same applications. In addition to providing higher resolution through a larger optical format, the KAI-47051 incorporates a reduced-noise amplifier that lowers read noise by 15% compared to the existing device, increasing dynamic range to 66 decibels (dB). A 16-output architecture enables a maximum frame rate of seven frames per second, almost double that of the existing, lower resolution device. Customers moving to the new KAI-47051 can enjoy these performance improvements without sacrificing the image quality or electronic shutter performance inherent in the CCD design.

“These applications continue to require the advanced imaging performance that today is only available from CCD technology,” said Herb Erhardt, Vice President and GM, Industrial and Security Division, Image Sensor Group at ON Semiconductor. “With a broad base of both CCD and CMOS technologies, we are able to match the most appropriate technologies with the needs of different applications, uniquely positioning ON Semiconductor to serve the demanding needs of the industrial imaging market.”

The KAI-47051 is available in a RoHS-compliant PGA-201 package in Monochrome, Bayer Color, and Sparse Color configurations.
