CMOSIS Unveils 48MP 30fps GS Sensor

BusinessWire: CMOSIS, a member of ams group, launches the CMV50000, an industry first global shutter CMOS image sensor offering resolution of 48MP. The CMV50000 is a full-frame format sensor with 7920 x 6002 4.6-┬Ám pixels using the 8-transistor pixel architecture. Its pixel offers 64dB optical DR at full resolution and up to 68dB in subsampled 4k mode. Operating at 30fps with 12 bit pixel depth at full resolution or a binned 4k mode, and at up to 60fps with pixel subsampling to 4k resolution, the sensor is suitable for use in high-speed machine-vision systems, as well as in TV broadcasting and video cameras. An HDR mode is supported by an odd/even row dual-exposure operation.

The introduction of the 48Mpixel CMV50000 gives camera manufacturers the opportunity to enjoy the design and operating advantages of a CMOS image sensor while gaining the ultra-high resolution, which has previously only been available through the use of CCD sensors”, said Wim Wuyts, Marketing Manager for image sensors at ams. “The CMV50000’s advanced noise-reduction features such as black level clamping combined with its high optical dynamic range, results in high picture quality at full operation speed without the need for complex analog output matching required for multi-tap CCD image sensors and therefore also decreases the camera development time significantly.

The monochrome version of the CMV50000 is sampling now. The color version will be available for sampling by the end of 2016. Unit pricing is €3,450.

    1. Please mail €34,500 + VAT and a SASE to CMOSIS. Cash will be good. Unfortunately we cannot take your car instead, although we think it is very pretty.

  4. I wonder what their yields are. The array alone is 1004 mm^2 (36.4mm x 27.6mm). The roll-off across the array must be significant as well.

    1. The unit price of 3,450 euro told you already. People can buy an entire wafer with that amount of money.

  5. It's amazing that this sensor would be worth 3-4k: a medium-size vanilla cmos sensor based on 10 year old ip in such a competitive field?

    Yield? This unit price turns profits at 1 good sensor per 2 wafers? The sensor is really not that large.

    It must be that people simply want to pay this much. Great for AMS! I'm curious what is next.

  6. One of the first uses of EIGHT Transistors was in the Hitachi Two-Band (AM-SW) 8-Transistor Radio Model WH-822H http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/hitachi_transistor_8_wh_822h.html

    It is unfortunate that CMOSIS did not make the Image Sensor Array 16:9 or 8192x5804. The Data Rate and CDS are certainly welcome.
