ON Semiconductor has released a new range of image sensors, the 5.3-megapixel VITA 5000 and the 2.3-megapixel VITA 2000, for high end security, surveillance, 2D barcode, machine vision and similar intelligent transportation applications.
The image sensors have a lot of classy features such as a traditional rolling shutter mode, triggered and pipelined global shutter modes and offer speeds of 75 frames per second for VITA 5000 and 92 frames per second for VITA 2000. They feature 10 bit analog to digital converters with serialized or parallel outputs of up to 620 Mbps. They also have programmable registers to manage diverse operating modes, which could be configured over a typical SPI interface.
The VITA 2000 could give outputs in two formats, the 4:3 (1600x1200), which is widely used in the machine vision market and the HD (1929x1080) used in the security market. The sensor array offers four parallel LVDS channels and also includes a standard optical format lens with dimensions of 2/3”.
The VITA 5000 includes a standard optical format of 1” with either color or monochrome digital output. Its pipelined global shutter feature helps exposure during read out to minimize motion blur. The sensor provides eight parallel LVDS channels. It could operate in a rolling shutter mode with Correlated Double Sampling to boost dynamic range and minimize noise.
