Shutter Image Sensors Focus On Machine Vision Apps

OmniVision Technologies expands its family of global shutter image sensors with the OG02B1B/OG02B10 and the OV9285. The sensors are designed to be cost-effective solutions for a wide range of consumer and industrial machine vision applications.

 

For designs demanding best-in-class resolution with the option for full-color imaging, OmniVision offers the 2-megapixel OG02B1B (monochrome) and the OG02B10 (color) image sensors. Both versions provide 1600 x 1300 resolution in a 1/2.9-inch optical format and a 15-degree chief ray angle (CRA) to support wide field-of-view lens designs. This combination of color imaging and CRA is excellent for applications such as agricultural drones that must capture high-resolution color images for crop and field monitoring.

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 OV9285 provides an even more cost-effective option, with a 1.48-megapixel or 1328 x 1120 resolution, the ability to capture video at 90 frames per second (FPS) and an optical format of 1/3.4-inch with a CRA of 9 degrees. Both sensors are built on OmniVision’s 3 x 3-micron OmniPixel®3-GS pixel technology. This global shutter sensor technology eliminates motion artifacts and blurring. It also provides high quantum efficiency and excellent near-infrared (NIR) sensitivity at 850nm and 940nm, which reduces power consumption and extends device battery life. The OG02B1B, OG02B10 and OV9285 image sensors are available now. For more information, visit OmniVision.
