Framos distributes THOMSON HDTV-CMOS Image Sensor

(PresseBox) (Pullach b. München, ) The THOMSON HDTV-CMOS Image Sensor is a high performance, low power, 2/3" sensor with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Based on its ground breaking CMOS image technology for the broadcast industry, the new Thomson Sensor is a next generation chip enhanced for industrial application integration such as machine vision, medical imaging and high-end video surveillance.

The Sensor also includes control electronics, which allow to use various scanning modes such as progressive scan, interlaced formats, vertical scanning and others.

The Imager features high dynamic range (greater than 120dB in nonlinear modus), outstanding sensitivity, on-chip dual 12 bit A/D converters and 90 frames per second. In summary the sensor delivers full resolution, high quality images in a large variety of lighting conditions. The Sensor integrated ADCs provide a high degree of flexibility for the end product with a minimum of external components.

The Thomson HD CMOS Image Sensor is particularly suited for high-end applications where high dynamic range, high speed video capture capability and sensitivity in low light conditions are required. The Sensor is distributed by Framos and is available in organic or ceramic packages and for high volumes it is also available in die format.
