Full HD CMOS image sensor

  • 07-Jun-2013 10:03 EDT

Toshiba Corp. offers a full HD (1080p) complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor suitable for the automotive and security/surveillance markets. According to the company, the TCM5117PL features 100-dB high dynamic range (HDR), fast frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps), and color noise reduction technology for better color reproduction in low-light conditions. A contact image sensor-type 1/3-in optical format image sensor, the TCM5117PL provides high-resolution-picture quality in low- to bright-light conditions. Toshiba’s single-frame, alternate-row, dual-exposure HDR implementation in the TCM5117PL is suitable for capturing fast-moving objects compared to conventional multiframe systems. With frame rates at 30 fps for conventional multiframe systems, the single-frame approach at 60 fps promotes faster, less blurry, and higher quality images especially in high-contrast light conditions. The 10.5 x 10.0 mm (0.413 x 0.393 in) P-FLGA80 package is designed for long-term use, operating 24 hours a day.
