Cypress Semiconductor has introduced two novel additions to its leading VITA series of image sensors called the 2.3-megapixel VITA 2000 and the 5.3-megapixel VITA 5000 for high-end protection, 2D barcode, machine vision and smart traffic application purposes.
These sensors provide a sequence of hi-tech characteristics, involving activated and pipelined global shutter functionality and a traditional rolling shutter operation with speeds in the range of 92 frames per second (FPS) for VITA 2000 model and 75 FPS for VITA 5000 model, and features a 10-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) having parallel or serialized outputs with 620 Mbps. They are designed with automated registers to regulate various functions, using a quality SPI connection.
The VITA 2000 supplies output in two standard modes called the HD 1920 x 1080 format for the surveillance market and 4:3 1600 x 1200 format supporting machine vision business. The sensor sequence features a 2/3’’ standard optical mode lens with four LVDS parallel channels.
The VITA 5000 features a 1’’ standard optical mode having colored or monochrome digital display. The pipelined global shutter functionality allows exposure on read-out to lower motion cloudiness. The sensor is also functional with a rolling shutter pattern posing Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) to lower noise and enhance dynamic ranges and supplies eight LVDS parallel channels according to company.
Georges Hiltrop, general manager of Cypress’s image sensor marketing section, commented that they have gained a prime position in the industrial market for their image sensor due to their excellent standard, efficiency and delivery and are pleased to extend their imaging markets for providing high-end protection and to serve other purposes.
