Sony Announces New Sensors - IMX183CLK, IMX294CJK and More...

Sony sensors

In May 2017 Sony announced a series of new sensors. Take a look at the details below

1. IMX183CLK-J/CQJ-J New

Major Features

  • Supports 20.48M-pixel readout at 21.98 frame/s in 12-bit mode
  • Supports all-pixel global reset (use with mechanical shutter)
  • Supports 4K video mode (4096H × 2160V, 10-bit mode, 59.94 frame/s)
  • Supports a variety of readout modes such as 10-bit high-speed all-pixel readout, 12-bit high-resolution readout, and vertical arbitrary cropping
  • High-sensitivity back-illuminated structure 2.4 µm square unit pixel with a proven record in products for security camera and industrial applications

IMX183CLK is  20.48M Megapixel 1″ sensor available in color as well as Monochrome version for Industrial use. This high-senstivity Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensors comes with Multi Pixel and All-Pixel Global Reset Function, in simple language you can assume that instead of using rolling shutter they are using Global shutter.

The IMX183CQJ-J/CLK-J series is equipped with a global shutter function that can globally reset the internal accumulated charges using an external trigger. Imaging with a flash and mechanical shutter after this all-pixel global reset makes it possible to align the exposure start timing of all pixels, achieving storage operation similar to that of a global shutter. The exposure time can also be adjusted by varying the vertical sync signal input period. (However, the minimum vertical sync signal period is 18 times the horizontal readout period.)

2. IMX294CJK

4/3 format sensor Supports 4K output at 120 frame/s

Major Features of IMX294CJK sensor

  • Large-size optical format (Type 4/3)
  • Supports 4K output at 120 frame/s
  • High sensitivity (SNR1s = 0.14 lx)
  • High-speed interfaces (CSI-2/SLVS-EC*2)
  • Supports Quad Bayer Coding HDR

The sensor is of 4/3 size and features 10MP resolution dedicated for industrial use, the 4/3 format based 4K sensor can deliver 4K at 120 frame/s (in ADC 10-bit output mode). It is really amazing, since no 4/3 consumer camera have capability to record 4K @ 120fps. The other biggest advantage of the camera is it uses Quad Bayer pixel structure (see Figure 1) realizes an HDR (High Dynamic Range) function with no time difference, enabling video imaging with a wide dynamic range.



Yes, these are three different image sensors 2M, 6M, and 12M Monochrome CMOS Image Sensors for Industrial Applications.

Sensor Details

  • Diagonal 6.46 mm (Type 1/2.8) Approx. 2.13M-Effective Pixel Monochrome CMOS Image Sensor
  • Diagonal 8.92 mm (Type 1/1.8) Approx. 6.44M-Effective Pixel Monochrome CMOS Image Sensor
  • Diagonal 9.33 mm (Type 1/1.7) Approx. 12.40M-Effective Pixel Monochrome CMOS Image Sensor

Major Features

  • High sensitivity monochrome image sensors
  • 2M-, 6M-, and 12M-pixel lineup
  • Global reset function

These three sensors monochrome back-illuminated CMOS image sensors for industrial camera applications. These image sensors use the STARVIS™ technology, all these sensors are able to record HD, 5M, and 4K according to the imaging subject. These sensors also supports such global reset function and multiple exposure function.
