Business Wire, EETimes: Cypress 25MP VITA 25K 53fps sensor claims to offer the market's highest throughput for a device with a pipelined and triggered global shutter. The sensor has 32 10-bit LVDS outputs, each runs at a 620 Mbps, which results in a high frame rate of 53fps at full 25MP resolution. The sensor is intended for high-end machine vision applications, such as inspection machines; biometric inspection, such as next-generation palm print readers; and intelligent traffic systems.
The VITA 25K sensor has 5120 x 5120 active pixels with 4.5um pixel size. The sensor's datasheet gives few more details: The pixel fill factor is 80% and FF x QE is 52% at 550nm. FPN is 0.5%rms of the full scale. PRNU is 2%. Dark current is 133e/s at 25C. The power dissipation is 2.5W out of a triple supply (1.8V, 3.3V and 4.5V). Its ADC has 10 bit resolution.
The sensor offers a 35-mm optical format with monochrome or color digital output. Samples of the VITA 25K image sensor are currently available, with production devices expected in the first half of 2011.
