“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.
