Sony 4K 480fps GS Sensor

Imager No-Mania quotes Watch.Impress article on Sony presentation at 2016 VLSI Symposium. The 4K, 480fps sensor based on 5.86um global shutter pixel is used in a newly announced HDC-4800 video camera. The sensor features a dual gain ramp ADC stripes placed on top of the image sensor die:


  1. Is the pixel derived from the IMX174 GS CMOS sensor?

    I guess this is the same pixel as the one used in the F55 camera (digital cinema) and the IMX174 sensor (machine vision). Notice the smaller size of the logic chips compared to the image sensor. First time I see this for image sensors.

  3. Imx174 is a good chip

  4. It does not seem to be very sensitive though.
