CCD Image Sensor Addresses Inspection & Surveillance Applications

ON Semiconductor’s KAI-43140 43-Mpixel resolution, charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor comes in a 35-mm optical format, suitable for use in applications such as end of line inspection of high-definition (HD) and ultra-high-definition (UHD) flat panel displays and aerial photography.

 

The device employs a 4.5-µm Interline Transfer CCD (ITCCD) pixel that increases resolution by 50% compared to the prior 5.5 µm design while preserving critical imaging performance. Featuring a true electric “global” shutter, the device supports full resolution frame rates up to 4 fps using flexible 1, 2, or 4 output readout architecture. The KAI-43140 shares the same package and pin definitions as the popular 29 MP KAI-29050 and KAI-29052 image sensors, allowing it to be incorporated into existing camera designs with only minor electrical changes – speeding time-to-market for adoption of the new device while retaining continuity with existing camera and lens installations.

SENSORS MIDWEST

Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.

 

Engineering grade versions of the KAI-43140 are now available, with production versions planned for early 3Q18. The KAI-43140 is available in a ceramic PGA package, and is offered in monochrome, Bayer Color, and Sparse Color configurations. For more details, checkout a KAI-43140 Video and the Evaluation Kit. Of course, a datasheet is available.
