SONY expands its 3rd-generation Pregius Sensor line

SONY has released their new image sensors within its third generation Pregius line, featuring the SLVS-EC high-speed interface. Both the CMOS Global Shutter IMX425 and the IMX432, with a 1.1” optical format, provide 1,78 Megapixel resolution, and a pixel pitch of 9µm for excellent image quality.

These next generation sensors are available at FRAMOS. The IMX425 is an ideal fit for high-speed factory automation with an 8 / 10 / 12-bit A/D converter and a throughput of up to 565 frames per second (fps) at a 10-bit pixel depth. The IMX432 is a reduced-lanes version providing up to 98fps with a pixel depth of 12-bits, and covers ITS and traffic solutions, in addition to life sciences applications, including microscopy.

Sibel Yorulmaz-Cokugur, Sensor expert at FRAMOS, says: “The excellent speed and image quality is one of the biggest advantages of SONY’s 3rd Gen Pregius devices. Maximizing the throughput of production lines with high frame rates, objects can be inspected with precise detection, and increased accuracy from short working distances. A capacity of up to eight Regions of Interest (ROI) make even higher frame rates possible. The SLVS-EC standard ensures fast transmission for real-time processing.”

The IMX425 imager, like all third generation Pregius devices with the 8-lanes high-speed SLVS-EC interface standard, provides a maximum output of 18.4Gbps. It produces excellent image quality by featuring high/low conversation gain modes, dual triggering, dual ADC, and self-triggering. These features achieve high sensitivity, low dark current, and, low PLS characteristics.

The industry and product experts at FRAMOS are available to support customers with the integration of these new sensors into their applications and projects. In addition, FRAMOS provides support services for development, customization, and logistics. Additionally, FRAMOS has developed an SLVS-EC Rx IP Core and Evaluation board for easy sensor interfacing with FPGAs from Xilinx that reduces development times.
