2.3-Mp CMOS digital image sensor from ON Semiconductor
ON Semiconductor announced a new 1 / 2.7-in, 2.3 Mp CMOS digital image sensor with an active-pixel array of 1936 H x 1188 V. The AR0239 is designed to produce clear, sharp digital images in challenging bright and low light conditions. It was designed for applications that include security and surveillance systems, body cameras, and vehicle digital video recorders (dash cameras).
Key attributes of the AR0239 include low-light performance, robust near infrared (NIR) quantum efficiency (QE), and the ability to capture high dynamic range scenes. The highly sensitive 3-μm x 3-μm backside illuminated (BSI) pixels with improved NIR process, which include DR-Pix technology, give a 21% improvement in responsivity and a 10% improvement in QE vs. the device’s predecessor.
The sensor features such camera functions as in-pixel binning and windowing, and it has an on-chip analog to digital converter that supports both 10-bit and 12-bit architectures. When operating in linear mode with a serial interface, the device offers fully HiSPi/MiPi compatible HD support up to 1080p at 90 fps for excellent video performance. Two- or three-exposure 1080p HDR output is available at up to 30 fps.
The AR0239 is optimized for ease of design-in with multi-camera synchronization capability, simplifying more sophisticated installations. The iBGA package housing enhances the robustness and reliability of the image sensor for thermal and humidity resilience and performance. Operating temperature range is -30°C to +85°C.
The component is available in 9 mm x 9 mm iBGA-63 packaging. Engineering samples are available now, with full production planned for November 2017. Visit http://www.onsemi.com/PowerSolutions/locateSalesSupport.do to order samples.
