Global imaging product supplier FRAMOS has been appointed by Sony as the North American stocking distributor for industrial CCD and CMOS image sensors.

With the agreement, FRAMOS will offer Sony’s entire line of CMOS and CCD sensors to its North American network of imaging clients, OEMs, and camera manufacturers.

"The FRAMOS Group is in a period of global expansion and tremendous growth," said Sebastien Dignard, President of FRAMOS Technologies Inc. "Establishing this agreement with SONY North America strengthens our portfolio for customers and will enable us to solidify our leadership in the global Machine Vision market while offering local and timely support at all levels."

Sony image sensors are among the most used sensors in machine vision today, including the newly-launched Pregius IMX174 global shutter CMOS sensor, which has been positively received by the industry. Pregius sensors use global shutter pixel technology for active pixel-type CMOS image sensors that use Sony’s low-noise CCD structure. This particular sensor is a 2.3 MPixel model that features a 5.86 µm pixel size and can achieve frame rates up to 164.5 fps.
