SmartSens Announces AI (Advanced Imaging) Sensor

PRNewswire: SmartSens announces the launch of SC200AI sensor, the first of its Advanced Imaging (AI) series product lineup—high-performance, low-light-capable image sensor with advanced HDR capabilities and reliability in harsh environments. It features the latest BSI SmartClarity pixel as well as full-color night vision technology, employing a proprietary SFC (Source Follower Centric) enhanced design architecture to increase signal sensitivity and reduce noise levels, resulting in higher SNR and HDR performance.

Compared to previous generations of SmartSens image sensors, the SC200AI improves both sensitivity (27%) and SNRmax (250%). SC200AI also improves color reproduction by lowering Red-to-Green Channel Crosstalk by 36%. The SC200AI also has a 56% reduced dark current compared to previous generations of SmartSens image sensors.

SC200AI marks a new chapter in our Smart Sensor offerings by dramatically enhancing the image quality across the board and lowering image noise levels in high-temperature environments,” said Chris Yiu, CMO of SmartSens. “As the latest member of our 1/2.8” 1080P product family, the SC200AI is fully Pin2Pin compatible with previous generation products. SmartSens continues to expand our supply chain and capacity support while delivering new technology that elevates the performance of our solutions in the security camera sector.

The SC200AI Image Sensor line is available for sampling immediately, with mass production expected in late-June.
