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