Aptina Advances Global Shutter Technology For High Speed Surveillance, Inspection And Scanning

Aptina, a leading innovator of CMOS imaging technology, today announced the newest additions to the company’s growing portfolio of high performance imaging solutions with its launch of the MT9M031 and MT9M021 image sensors. The sensors integrate Aptina’s smallest, high performance global shutter technology for high speed image capture into a 1/3-inch optical format high definition (HD) device. The 3.75-micron global shutter pixel with exceptional low light performance can stop action without the artifacts typically associated with conventional rolling shutter pixels. The sensors will improve camera performance for a variety of applications within surveillance, machine vision, 2D scanning and high speed image capture where global shutter technology is necessary. The new sensors provide a performance upgrade to current WVGA global shutter sensor designs by providing HD video of up to 720p at 60fps in the most challenging environments.

“With over a decade of research on optimizing and shrinking global shutter pixels we are proud to unveil our latest advances in high performance global shutter technology,” said David Zimpfer, General Manager of Aptina’s Automotive Industrial Business Unit. “By shrinking the global shutter pixel to 3.75-microns we are able to provide high-speed motion capture capability in stunning HD resolution in the standard 1/3-inch optical format.”

The MT9M021 and the MT9M031 provide camera designers with a broad list of benefits to enable exemplary imaging performance in video applications like 2D bar code scanning, point of sales bar code scanning, factory automation inspection equipment, traffic cameras and high speed dome cameras. The sensors’ 1/3-inch optical format, an industry standard, makes it easy to find cost-effective megapixel lens. The new sensors deliver excellent image quality with Aptina’s leading 3.75-micron global shutter pixel performance along with the means to capture 720p/60 video in low light. Additionally, trigger mode and strobe light sync features enable 3D/stereo vision and license plate reading applications.
