Code Reader with Aptina HD Image Sensor for Embedded Applications

Code Corporation has featured Aptina’s MT9M033 HD image sensor in its bar code reader, the Code Reader 8000 (CR8000) that includes a global class platform for imaging and decoding and has been designed for embedded applications. This platform is able to meet exacting requirements of space without compromising the reading performance of the bar code. Aptina and Code have been collaborating on the development of this new product ever since the summer of 2009.

The Aptina sensor was designed using the high speed capture technology and dual conversion gain (DCG) technology of Aptina. It distinctively provides excellent low light sensitivity and high speed capture at 60 fps for the bar reading function.

This image sensor of Aptina can be integrated with a rolling or global shutter. Code had initially chosen the rolling shutter for the CR8000 but used the pin to pin compatibility. The global shutter version can be easily integrated by Code to enable additional applications having distinctive bar code scanning needs.

Code Corporation’s VP of Marketing Garrett Russell informed that Aptina’s MT9M033 emerged as the first option since it complied with the stringent product requirements of Code. He explained that Code’s products incorporate several important differentiators to offer a competitive benefit in the market place and selection of the MT9M033 has provided a partner who offers a base platform that pushes the scanning performance of the bar code to the next level.

Aptina’s Automotive & Industrial Business Unit’s General Manager and Vice President David Zimpfer informed that the latest CR8000 reader from Code has completely optimized the MT9M033’s sensor capabilities. He added that performance, speed and HD resolution are vital factors of success of scan reader devices.
