Image Sensor

photonics | Posted: 15 Jul 2017, 10:20

An RGB-IR version of the ON Semiconductor AR0237 image sensor has been announced by Framos GmbH and is designed for applications needing both visible and NIR light. 
Image Sensor
 
With an optical format of 1/2.7 in. and full HD resolution, the rolling shutter CMOS sensor is suited for monitoring under low-light conditions. The image sensor comes with an active-pixel array of 1928 × 1088 and captures images in 2-MP, full-HD resolution for high-quality video surveillance. For an improved image quality, it captures images in either linear or high dynamic range modes with a rolling-shutter readout and includes sophisticated camera functions like in-pixel binning, windowing, and both video and single-frame modes. 
 
The sensor is designed for both low-light and high-dynamic-range scene performance and is programmable through a simple two-wire serial interface.
