Business Wire: ON Semi/Aptina's AR0230CS sensor is a 1/2.7-inch device with 105dB DR combining low-light capabilities with superior NIR sensitivity for security cameras. It supports HDR video with improved motion compensation, advanced local tone mapping (ALTM), and digital lateral overflow (DLO) to minimize motion artifacts and enhance HDR color reproduction. AR0230CS' dual-conversion gain 3.0µm DR-Pix pixel has two modes: a low conversion gain mode that is optimized to offer greater charge handling capacity in bright environments and a high conversion gain mode which delivers increased sensitivity and reduced readout noise in low light environments.
“With demands for higher resolutions, the growth in professional and consumer 1080p security cameras has been tremendous and the 2.1 megapixel, 1/2.7 inch AR0230CS sensor is well positioned for this market,” said Alvin Wong, senior director of automotive and industrial CMOS imaging products, ON Semiconductor. “This sensor’s extensive dynamic range, superior low light performance and NIR sensitivity set it apart from other imaging solutions on the market.”
The AR0230CS is currently sampling and is expected to be in mass production in Q1 2015.
