CMOS Image Sensor Performs In Factory Automation Apps

Teledyne e2v expands its Emerald family of CMOS image sensors with a 5-Mpixel device, the Emerald 5M designed for machine vision, automated optical inspection (AOI), and factory automation applications. Available in both monochrome and color, the sensor has a 1/1.8-inch optical format, containing a 2.8-μm, low-noise, global shutter pixel, and arranged in a 2,560 x 1,936 array. The device can also stream video at 50 fps at 10 bits, over a 4 wire, MIPI CSI-2 interface.


The sensor includes 5° Chief Ray Angle compensation and is offered in a ruggedized cLGA package or miniaturized organic fan-out package measuring 1.19-mm thick. Features include:
