A CMOS imaging solutions provider, Aptina has expanded image sensor portfolio for surveillance applications with the launch of the high definition image sensor, the MT9P006 which offers an image resolution of 5 MP.
Designed specifically to fulfill the surveillance IP camera demands of the growing markets, the 1/2.5” optical sensor of 2.2 µm architecture has been engineered using Aptina’s A-Pix pixel technology. The pixel technology allows for superior performance and provides advanced video capture capabilities which is vital for surveillance. Further, the A-Pix technology reduces pixel noise, improves color fidelity, provides bright light performance and improves low light sensitivity of the camera.
The third addition to Aptina’s high definition image sensor portfolio following the MT9M034 and the AR0331, the MT9P006 image sensor provides sharp detailing and precise, vibrant color HD video capture at 1080p at 30 fps and 720p at 60 fps in diverse lighting conditions.
The CMOS imaging sensor can be used in medical, industrial, automotive applications and is best suited for barcode scanners, gaming, toys and in a range of notebook computers and mobile phones.
The Vice President –Surveillance at Aptina, David Zimpfer stated that the addition of the MT9P006 completes the HD image sensors portfolio and provides high-performance sensors to the customers.
Available in a 48-pin iLCC package of 10 X 10mm dimensions and is currently in production. Aptina will showcase the MT9P006 image sensor at the 2011 China Public Security Expo being held between 29 October and 1 November at Shenzhen in China.
