ON Semi Unveils 1.2MP Sensor with Next Generation Global Shutter Technology

BusinessWire: ON Semiconductor introduces the AR0135 global shutter CMOS sensor, an 1/3-inch, 1.2 MP device aimed to automotive imaging as well as high-speed barcode scanning, and emerging applications like virtual reality and 3D depth sensing. The new innovative global shutter pixel design has 10X lower dark current and 4X higher shutter efficiency vs. previous generation products. This 1280 x 960 resolution device is capable of 54fps at full resolution and 720p at 60fps.

The AR0135AT is qualified to meet the AEC-Q100 Grade 2 temperature range of -40 to 105°C, while the AR0135CS supports the standard temperature range of -30 to 70°C. Engineering samples are available now, and the devices will be in production in 3Q16.

  2. How much is the temporal noise?

  3. Max SNR is 40.7 dB, which leads to a full well of around 11,700 electrons. Dynamic range is 67.7 dB, so the noise floor is about 4.8 electrons.

  4. Why such a slow frame rate? Seems to miss market requirements.

  5. Hi Vladimir,
    Does it exist a datasheet already?
    I can't find the same diagram/snapshot shown here on their web site.

    Thanks,

    1. It would be better to ask ON Semi directly.
