PRNewswire: Toshiba announces its newest device for the security/surveillance and automotive markets, a full HD (1080p) CMOS image sensor with 100dB DR, frame rate of 60fps, pixel size of 2.7um, and color noise reduction in low-light conditions (CNR). The TCM5117PL 1/3-inch sensor is aimed to security/surveillance cameras and automotive systems.
Toshiba's single-frame, alternate-row, dual-exposure HDR implementation in the TCM5117PL is better suited for capturing fast-moving objects compared to conventional multi-frame systems. With frame rates at 30fps for conventional multi-frame systems, the single-frame approach, at 60fps, promotes faster, less blurry images in high-contrast light conditions. The TCM5117PL is designed for long-term use, operating 24 hours a day.
The TCM5117PL has a 3.3+/-0.3V single-power supply and comes in a 10.5 ×10.0 mmP-FLGA80 package. The device supports RAW10/RAW12 data formats.
Samples of the TCM5117PL sensor are available in Q2/2013. Mass production is scheduled for Q3/2013. Sample pricing is set at $35.
