SmartSens has introduced the SC031GS CMOS image sensor, which the company is referring to as the world’s first commercial-grade 0.3 MPixel (300,000 pixel) global shutter CMOS image sensor based on backside illumination (BSI) pixel technology.
Newly added to the SmartSens SmartGS product line, the SC031GS is a 1/6” monochrome CMOS image sensor with a 3.744 µm pixel size, MIPI LVDS interface, and a maximum frame rate of 240 fps. Targeting applications including machine vision, artificial intelligence, security and surveillance, and consumer products; the sensor—according to the company—captures high quality images in low light environments through SmartSens’ single-frame high dynamic range global shutter technology.
Additionally, when combined with its DVP/MIPI/LVDS interface, the SC031GS can be adapted to various System on Chip platforms, according to SmartSens.
Leo Bai, General Manager of SmartSens' AI Image Sensors Division, commented on the company’s increased focus on being a global player in sensors, as well as the new BSI sensor.
"SmartSens is not only a new force in the global CMOS image sensor market, but also a company that commits to designing and developing products that meet the market needs and reflect industry trends. We partnered with key players in the AI field to integrate AI functions into the product design. SC031GS is such a revolutionary product that is powered by our leading Global Shutter CMOS image sensing technology and designed for trending AI applications."
