FRAMOS introduces the NEW SONY 2.3 MP CMOS Sensor with Global Shutter for industrial ap-plications

High sensitivity, low dark current characteristics and variable speed electric shutter function

(PresseBox) (Taufkirchen, ) FRAMOS is pleased to announce the New SONY IMX174 CMOS sensor with global shutter function. This sensor is available in monochrome (LLJ) and color (LQJ) version and provides an optical format of 13.4 mm (type 1/1.2) with a pixel size of 5.86 μm square and 2.3 MP effective resolution.

Industrial applications typically require high-speed capture of the exact shape of a fast moving sub-ject. A new pixel with analog memory was developed for the IMX174, this eliminates the generation of focal plane distortion by scanning all pixel signals at once.
The IMX174 has an LVDS 8ch output, and achieves high-speed imaging with a maximum frame rate of 164.5 fps using 10 bit ADC and maximum 128.2 fps using 12 bit ADC.

The IMX174 has internal register settings for switching the vertical scan direction of the sensor and supports a 2 frame set output mode utilizing high-speed frame rates. In this mode, separate exposure times can be set for 2 consecutive frames, and each set of 2 frames can be handled as a single set to automatically output consecutive images. It can generate an image with a wide dynamic range as a result of the combination of multiple frames.
