ON Semiconductor calls its AR0221 the industry’s first 1/1.7-inch 2.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor featuring the company’s recently developed 4.2 μm Back Side Illuminated (BSI) pixels that boasts class-leading low light sensitivity for industrial applications. The AR0221 offers a three-exposure line-interleaved High Dynamic Range (HDR) with a sensor resolution of 1936H x 1096V, supporting frame rates of 1080p at 30 fps and an outstanding Signal-Noise Ratio (SNR) across visible and near-infrared wavelengths. Its 16:9 ratio with vivid colors and high contrast make it reliable for demanding industrial applications.
The sensor offers dual data interfaces in the form of 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 and HiSPi SLVS. Designed to meet industrial-grade specifications, the AR0221 can operate in harsh outdoor environments where operating temperatures can range between -30°C and +85°C. Packaged in a durable, reliable and robust iBGA package with anti-reflection coating on its cover glass, the AR0221 is programmable through a simple two-wire serial interface.
