FRAMOS is distributing evaluation samples of the new Sony IMX426 Pregius third-generation global shutter CMOS sensor. The IMX426 is a diagonal 9.2 mm, 1/1.7 format sensor that features a 9 µm square pixel pitch and can capture VGA resolution, 10-bit images at 1,449 fps, and via the SLVS-EC interface reaches a readout speed up to 1,594 fps for 8-bit images. The IMX426 can also operate at 12-bit resolution and can be programmed for multiple ROI.
Sony's IMX426 sensor operates with analog 3.3 V, digital 1.2 V, and interface 1.8V power supplies. It features high/low conversation gain modes, dual triggering, dual ADC, and self-triggering. FRAMOS says this combination of features produce high sensitivity, low dark current, and low PLS characteristics. Mass production of the IMX426 monochrome sensor begins at the end of 2018, and the color version goes into production in the middle of Q1 2019.
