  • Sensor uses BSI pixel process to achieve a 3-μm pixel structure and a 1/1.8″ optical size, with sensitivity of up to 4800 mV/Lux and maximum signal-to-noise ratio of 43 dB.
  • Ultra-low-light performance: SNR1s of 0.21 lux.
  • SC4210 supports ultra-high dynamic range (over 100 dB).
  • Near-infrared enhancement: SC4210 features near-infrared (NIR) enhancement, which nearly doubles the quantum efficiency (QE) of the 850 nm to 940 nm band.
  • High frame rate: SC4210 can run at up to 60 fps with 4-Mpixel resolution.


The SC4210 is now in mass production. For more information, visit SmartSens and/or email [email protected].
