Ultra-low energy .three mega-pixel image sensor gives superior low-light functionality in a price powerful, compact, square format
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving power effective innovations, has announced the introduction of the ARX3A0 digital image sensor with .three Mega-Pixel (MP) resolution in a 1:1 aspect ratio. With up to 360 frames per second (fps) capture price it can execute like a worldwide shutter in lots of situations but with the size, functionality and responsivity added benefits of becoming a Back-Side Illuminated (BSI) rolling shutter sensor. With its compact size, square format and higher frame price, ARX3A0 is especially appropriate for emerging Machine Vision, Artificial Intelligence and AR/VR applications, as effectively as compact supplemental safety cameras.
Energy is becoming increasingly vital for lots of applications that give nonetheless or streaming photos. The ARX3A0 is developed to provide versatile, higher-functionality image capture with minimal energy it consumes significantly less than 19 mW when capturing photos at 30 fps, and just two.five mW when capturing 1 fps.
The 1/10 in square format enables low height modules, although the miniature three.five mm die size assists maximize the sensor’s field of view. Its compact size and square format imply the ARX3A0 can be made use of in emerging applications exactly where orientation is not fixed but space is restricted, such as AR/VR goggles to monitor the wearer’s eye movement. Eye movement information can be made use of to adjust the image viewed, which is believed to mitigate the attainable impact of motion sickness as skilled by some customers. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) is yet another application exactly where ARX3A0’s compact size and low energy image sensors will be important.
The monochrome sensor is primarily based on a 560 by 560 active-pixel array featuring ON Semiconductor’s NIR+ technologies, providing it higher sensitivity at close to IR wavelengths to provide superior functionality in no light or when lighting is made use of that is non-detectable by the human eye. Sophisticated energy management characteristics contain the capacity to automatically wake from a low energy mode when detecting motion or lighting adjustments in the scene. This makes it possible for the sensor to develop into the major supply of wake for an complete camera method saving even far more method energy.
Developments in Artificial Intelligence have noticed its use extend to far more regions, developing demand for information that is particularly intended for machines rather than humans. The particular needs of these systems effect image sensor technologies. Even though most image sensors have been conceived purely with visual applications in thoughts, the ARX3A0 is the initially of new breed of digital image sensor developed for sophisticated and increasingly intelligent systems, as effectively as standard viewing systems.
Gianluca Colli, Vice President and Basic Manager, Customer Option Division of Image Sensor Group at ON Semiconductor stated: “As we strategy an era exactly where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming an integral aspect of vision-primarily based systems, it becomes clear that we now share this globe with a new sort of intelligence. The ARX3A0 has been developed for that new breed of machine, exactly where vision is as integral to their operation as it is ours.”
The ARX3A0 is readily available in each chip scale package and reconstructed wafer die. Evaluation boards operating on ON Semiconductor’s market major Computer-primarily based DevWare method and prototype modules are also readily available by way of ON Semiconductor and authorized distributors.
