Machine Vision Camera Trends

Adimec publishes "Top 5 predictions for the future in machine vision." Out of the top 5, two trends are related to image sensors:
  • Trend #1 From CCD to CMOS even for high-end machine vision and defense systems.
  • Trend #2 Smaller pixels for industrial image sensors.
"Today’s pixel sizes are 4.5 to 5.5 um (industrial cameras – much smaller in the consumer/ cell phone market). In 2-3 years, industrial sensors will have pixel sizes of 3 to 3.5 um. We anticipate this will be the end of the pixel size race. Now image sensor developers are able to focus on functionality such as improving the global shutter and performance."
