ON Semi-Aptina Early Samples Automotive BSI Sensor

BusinessWire: ON Semiconductor announces early sampling of the company’s first BSI sensor for the automotive imaging market. The new BSI technology is said to deliver 4x better low light SNR, a 40% increase in visible light sensitivity, and greater than 60% improvement in NIR performance than the current market leading AR0132AT CMOS image sensor for ADAS.

The advantages this new BSI technology brings to the automotive market are exciting,” said Sandor Barna, VP of Automotive and Scanning Division at ON Semiconductor. “The state-of-the-art BSI devices based on this technology, that we currently have in early sampling, exhibit true industry-leading low light performance, and demonstrate our commitment to continued investment in automotive imaging technology.

The first product to incorporate this new technology will be the AR0136AT 1/3-inch image sensor with 1280 x 960 resolution, and 3.75um BSI pixels. The AR0136AT supports linear and HDR modes, in a single chip HDR solution, with a 120dB DR in HDR mode. It has an output pixel rate of 74.25 MP/second, which results in a frame rate of 45fps at 960p resolution and 60fps at 720p resolution. It has an operating junction temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C and will be fully qualified to AEC-Q100. Engineering samples will be available in Q3 of 2015, with mass production planned for early 2016.

  1. Hello Vladimir,

    for 0.4 lux you have the same picture as the one that reflects 1 lux situation. but on the web-site you can find the 0.4 lux one.
    P.S.: thank you for your web-site!
