Sony Semiconductor Solutions has again broadened its image sensor portfolio and provided a new sensor model for machine vision to mass production. The IMX392 using Sony’s Pregius Global Shutter sensor technology provides 2.3 Megapixels, and runs at 167 fps @10 bits or 200 fps @ 8 bit. This imager is a perfect fit for high speed applications in Quality Inspection, Factory Automation and Traffic.
The Sony IMX392 is a 1/2.3 type of imager with a square 1920 (h) x 1200 (v) active pixel array. The sensor has a pixel size of 3.45µm and is available in both color and monochrome versions. FRAMOS provides these sensors along with any support you need to get them integrated into your camera.
Sibel Yorulmaz-Cokugur, Sensor Expert at FRAMOS, says: “Besides the speed, the Sony IMX392 also offers excellent image quality because of its Pregius technology integrated inside. Its sensitivity and saturation values are high and are complemented with low dark current and low PLS characteristics providing great dynamic range in the captured images. For machine vision projects, this sensor provides quality and speed at an economical price.”
Vision engineers can even improve the image quality in their applications by using the different read-out modes offered by the sensor, such as 2x2 vertical FD binning. In this mode, for example, the sensor allows the summing of neighboring pixels to provide a “super pixel” that helps when under low light conditions. The sensor comes with an 8/10/12 bit A/D converter and image data is transfered over a low voltage sub-LVDS interface.
The industry and product experts at FRAMOS are available to support customers with the integration of these new sensors into their applications and projects. In addition, FRAMOS provides a broad range of support services for development, customization, and logistics.
