CMOS Image Sensor Pops A Pixel Parameter

SmartSens offers the SC031GS, what it is calling the world's first commercial-grade 300,000-pixel Global Shutter CMOS image sensor based on back-illuminated (BSI) pixel technology. The sensor suits a wide range of devices including smart barcode readers, drones, smart modules with gesture recognition/vSLAM/depth information/optical flow, and other image recognition-based artificial intelligence (AI) applications, such as facial recognition and gesture control. 

 

Allegedly, the SC031GS can significantly improve two-dimensional barcode scanning performance in information retrieval and payment applications. The device provides a wider-range, higher-speed, and more-accurate recognition technology for smart barcode readers. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can also benefit from its high response speed, wide dynamic range, and low power consumption.

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.

 

The SC031GS is based on BSI pixel design technology, using 3.75-µm large pixels (1/6" optical size) to deliver excellent imaging quality in low illumination environments with impeccable sensitivity and signal to noise ratio. In addition, SC031GS uses SmartSens' unique single-frame HDR technology, combined with a global shutter, to ensure accurate acquisition of image information in complex applications (motion) and lighting scenes. The SC031GS is now in mass production. For more information, visit SmartSens Technology.
