PR Newswire: Melexis launches the MLX75411 "Avocet" HDR sensor designed for driver assistance and night vision applications. The sensor will also be beneficial for security/surveillance cameras, fleet safety cameras, truck blind spot cameras, transportation/heavy vehicle cameras, and other outdoor and all weather cameras.
The Avocet image sensor is 1/3-inch format wide-VGA sensor with a 1024x512 pixels resolution, using 5.6um pixels. It features an extended high dynamic range of up to 154dB in every single frame at a full frame speed of 60fps. The sensor is based on SmalCamera-Cypress-Sensata Autobrite technology. It also has on-chip histogram optimization and sharpness control.
Cliff De Locht, product line manager at Melexis says: "In specific daytime automotive conditions like when sunlight shines directly into the lens, or when driving in or out tunnels or garages, the "Avocet" image sensor is able to give a crisp picture with maximum picture details in the very bright areas of the frame and the dark areas of the frame simultaneously."
The MLX75411 "Avocet" samples are available in 4 versions: monochrome, color RGBG, color RGBi and RCCC.
