Popular Camera Family Integrates Sony Sensor

As per IDS Imaging Development Systems, the IMX273 1.6 MP global shutter CMOS sensor from Sony provides enormous sensitivity, low noise levels, and a high dynamic range. Integrating the sensor into the uEye LE camera family, IDS has more USB 3.1 Gen 1 cameras available that deliver up to 247 fps. With a wide choice of configurations, the uEye LE models are suited for equipment manufacturing and space-critical applications.


This Sony global shutter sensor provides high image quality. This reportedly becomes particularly apparent when used in poor lighting conditions or while taking images of fast-moving objects. According to IDS, the 1/3-in. sensor is a viable alternative to the discontinued ICX445 CCD sensor. It can be used in a wide range of applications from microscopy to classic machine vision tasks in industrial production or to traffic monitoring.
