Toshiba Introduces Full HD CMOS Image Sensor with 100dB HDR

Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today announces its newest device for the security/surveillance and automotive markets, a full HD (1080p) CMOS image sensor with industry-leading 100dB high dynamic range (HDR), fast frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps) and better color reproduction in low-light conditions.

The TCM5117PL is a CIS-type 1/3 inch optical format image sensor providing high-resolution picture quality in low-to-bright light conditions making it ideal for implementation in security/surveillance cameras and automotive systems.

"In the security/surveillance markets conventional CCD-based analog systems are rapidly being switched over to CMOS-based systems which better support security and the development of the network infrastructure," says Andrew Burt , vice president of the Analog and Imaging Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "As such, we expect demand for these types of high-resolution CMOS image sensors to double in the next couple of years for both security/surveillance and automotive applications."

Toshiba's single-frame, alternate-row, dual-exposure HDR implementation in the TCM5117PL is well suited for capturing fast-moving objects compared to conventional multi-frame systems. With frame rates at 30 fps for conventional multi-frame systems, the single-frame approach, at 60 fps, promotes faster, less blurry and higher-quality images especially in high-contrast light conditions. The 2.7 um pixel size of the TCM5117PL is highly sensitive and therefore offers better visibility and color-rich images in low-luminescent environments. In addition, the TCM5117PL is designed for long-term use, operating 24 hours a day.

The TCM5117PL has a 3.3+/-0.3V single-power supply and comes in a 10.5 ×10.0 mm P-FLGA80 package. The device supports RAW10/RAW12 data formats.

Pricing and Availability
Samples of the TCM5117PL full HD CMOS image sensor are available Q2/2013. Mass production is scheduled for Q3/2013. Sample pricing is set at $ 35 (U.S.).
