25 Mpixel imager for industrial designs

October 19, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
ON Semiconductor has added to its Python CMOS image sensor family with high resolution options, extending to over 25 megapixels, bringing high resolution global shutter capabilities to industrial imaging applications

The Python 10K, 12K, 16K, and 25K image sensors are designed to combine imaging performance with high speed output architectures that meet and exceed the bandwidths available from interfaces such as USB 3.1, CameraLink, CoaXPress, and 10GigE. The new devices share a common high performance 4.5 µm pixel that uses ON Semiconductor’s in-pixel CDS (ipCDS) technology to enable global shutter imaging with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) in a compact pixel size. Image data is accessed through 32, 16, 8, or 4 LVDS channels, each running at 720 MHz, to enable readout speeds of up to 80 fps for the 25K device. The devices are packaged in a µPGA-355 package and are available in monochrome, Bayer colour, and extended near-infrared (NIR) configurations.

They join the previously released Python 300, 500, 1300, 2000, and 5000 devices to form an integrated family that allows camera manufacturers to rapidly roll out products with multiple resolutions, from VGA to over 25 MP, with greatly minimised development effort.
