Image Sensor Pairs 1080p Res With BSI Pixel Tech

ON Semiconductor’s AR0239 is a 1/2.7-in. 2.3-Megapixel CMOS digital image sensor with an active-pixel array of 1936H x 1188V. It is reportedly the first such device to combine 1080p resolution with BSI pixel technology. Capable of capturing clear and sharp digital images in challenging bright and low light conditions and the ability to capture continuous video and single frames makes it desirable for numerous applications including security and surveillance systems, body cameras and vehicle DVRs (dash cams). Features include near Infrared (NIR) quantum efficiency (QE), sensitive 3-μm x 3-μm Backside Illuminated (BSI) pixels with improved NIR process, and ON Semiconductor’s DR-Pix technology, yielding a 21% improvement in responsivity and a 10% improvement in QE over the device’s predecessor.


The sensor provides a variety of sophisticated camera functions such as in-pixel binning and windowing, and it has an on-chip analog to digital converter (ADC) that supports both 10-bit and 12-bit architectures. When operating in linear mode with a serial interface, the device offers fully HiSPi/MiPi compatible HD support up to 1080p at 90fps, thereby delivering excellent video performance. Two- or three-exposure 1080p HDR output is available at up to 30 fps.
