ON Semi Hayabusa Sensors Feature Super-Exposure Capability

BusinessWire: ON Semiconductor announces Hayabusa CMOS sensor platform for automotive applications such as ADAS, mirror replacement, rear and surround view systems and autonomous driving. The Hayabusa platform features a 3.0um BSI pixel design that delivers a charge capacity of 100,000e-, said to be highest in the industry, on-chip Super-Exposure capability for HDR with LED flicker mitigation (LFM), and real-time functional safety and automotive grade qualification.

The Hayabusa family enables automakers to meet the evolving standards for ADAS such as European NCAP 2020, and offer next-generation features such as electronic mirrors and high-resolution surround view systems with anti-flicker technology. The scalable approach of the sensors from ½” to ¼” optical sizes reduces customer development time and effort for multiple car platforms, giving them a time-to-market advantage.” said Ross Jatou, VP and GM of the Automotive Solutions Division at ON Semiconductor. “ON Semiconductor has been shipping image sensors with this pixel architecture in high-end digital cameras for cinematography and television. We are now putting this proven architecture into new sensors developed from the ground up for automotive standards.

The high charge capacity of this pixel design enables every device in the Hayabusa family to deliver Super-Exposure capability, which results in 120dB HDR images with LFM without sacrificing low-light sensitivity. With the widespread use of LEDs for front and rear lighting as well as traffic signs, the LFM capability of the platform makes certain that pulsed light sources do not appear to flicker, which can lead to driver distraction or, in the case of front facing ADAS, the misinterpretation of a scene by machine vision algorithms.

The first product in this family, the 2.6MP AR0233 CMOS sensor, is capable of running 1080p at 60 fps. Samples are available now to early access customers.
