4 Mpixel CCD image sensor supports up to 28fps

October 23, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Truesense Imaging has released 1080p and 4 megapixel devices that provide superior image quality for use in the most demanding applications such as machine vision, traffic, inspection, and surveillance.

The KAI-02170 image sensor is a one-inch optical format device in 1080p (1920x1080) resolution supporting frame rates up to 60 fps, while the KAI-04070 provides 4 megapixel (2048x2048) resolution in a 4/3 optical format at up to 28 fps. The new products join the existing KAI-16070 image sensor as members of the Truesense 7.4-micron interline transfer CCD family.

When compared to a 5.5 micron pixel, signal-to-noise and low light performance in this platform have been enhanced through an 80% increase in light gathering capability of the pixel, and smear rejection has been improved four-fold to -115 dB. Dynamic range has been doubled to 70 dB, and can be extended even further to 82 dB in binned pixel operation. The devices are available in monochrome, Bayer color, and Truesense sparse color filter pattern configurations, providing a full range of color and sensitivity options. They are also pin and package compatible with Truesense imaging's 5.5 micron pixel family of products. The KAI-02170 and KAI-04070 image sensors are sampling today, with a full evaluation kit available now.
