Teledyne e2v, a Teledyne Technologies company and provider of imaging solutions, announces its Emerald 67 megapixel, the newest member of its Emerald CMOS image sensor family. The new sensor features a high resolution with the smallest global shutter pixel (2.5 µm) on the market, enabling more objects to be captured in a single high-resolution shot, suitable for high-end automated optical inspection, microscopy and surveillance.
The Emerald 67M provides ultra-low noise performance and only 2.8 e- of readout noise. The sensor is highly sensitive with 70% QE, enabling precise defect and particle identification. It is also ultra high speed, which significantly enhances production line throughput.
Designed to enable easy and cost-effective integration for camera makers, the new sensor is compatible with 59 x 59 mm² camera platforms and has optical and package centers that are fully aligned for integration. It has an APS-C optical format (unusual for such a high resolution sensor), up to 72 sub LVDS outputs and 8/10/12 bit conversion modes, all within a ceramic µPGA package.
The Emerald 67M includes a range of application-based features, including:
- ROI (overlap and independent configurations allowed)
- High Dynamic Range modes
- Horizontal sub sampling
- Look-up table
- Binning modes
- Pixel defect correction.
