1080p full HD CMOS image sensor for industrial applications

April 30, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Toshiba has added a CIS type (CMOS image sensor) sensor that produces crisper images even when recording in high contrast light conditions. The device has 1/3-in. optical format and full HD (1080p) resolution.

The TCM3232PB meets the requirements for high resolution, high-speed frame rate and high fidelity images needed for industrial use, and is suitable for applications in security and surveillance cameras, monitor cameras and driving recorders.

Employing Toshiba’s HDR (High Dynamic Range) function, this sensor gives 108 dB of dynamic range and is optimised to capture clear images without distortion even in high contrast light conditions. The sensor also allows video to be captured in full resolution at 60fps to create natural, smooth footage. The TCM3232PB is housed in a compact PBGA (plastic Ball Grid Array) package, measuring 10 x 10mm, and will be entering production at the end of April 2015.
