Sony Releases Stacked Automotive Sensor Meeting Mobileye Spec

PRNewswire: Sony releases IMX324, a 1/1.7-inch stacked CMOS sensor with 7.42MP resolution and RCCC (Red-Clear-Clear-Clear) color filter for forward-sensing cameras in ADAS. The IMX324 is expected to offer compatibility with the "EyeQ 4" and "EyeQ 5" image processors currently being developed by Mobileye, an Intel Company. Until now now, Mobileye reference designs relied mostly on ON Semi sensors.

Sony will begin shipping samples in November 2017. IMX324 is said to be the industry's first automotive grade stacked image sensor meeting quality standards and functions required for automotive applications.

This image sensor is capable of approximately three times the horizontal resolution of conventional products (IMX224MQV), enabling image capture of objects such as road signs of up to 160m away (with FOV 32° lens). The sensor's pixel binning mode achieves the low lighting sensitivity of 2666 mV. The sensor is equipped with a unique function that captures dark sections at high-sensitivity settings as well as bright sections at high resolution alternatively, enabling high-precision image recognition when combined with post-signal processing.
