CMOSIS previewed 1/3" VGA (648 x 488) format sensor. The new CMV300 will use the same 8T pixel structure as the high-resolution series CMV2000/CMV4000 / CMV12000. With 7.4 µm square pixels, a noise level of 9 e- and a full well charge of 20,000 electrons, the new CMV300 realizes a dynamic range of more than 66 dB, which can be extended through several HDR operational modes.
The CMV300 pixel architecture features its low parasitic light sensitivity and CDS in global shutter mode. The sensor's 12-bit ADC delivers 600 full VGA frames per second over four LVDS outputs of 600 Mbit/sec each.
CMV300 comes in a monochrome version fitted with micro lenses, and in a color version featuring RGB Bayer patterns as well as micro lenses. Prototypes will be out by mid-2011.
