PHOENIX, AZ --- ON Semiconductor brings advanced global shutter imaging performance of the PYTHON CMOS image sensor family to a cost-effective, small-footprint design. The new PYTHON 480 image sensor shares the same pixel design and SVGA (800 x 600 pixel) resolution as the existing PYTHON 500, but is optimized for both size (with a package 85% smaller than the existing device) and power.
Large 4.8 µm global shutter pixels with two available microlens offset options enable high light sensitivity in end-use cases ranging from inspection systems (where short exposure times enable the capture of moving objects without motion blur) to barcode scanning (where large depth of field and small scanning engines are needed). The new device preserves the imaging performance of the PYTHON family of CMOS image sensors while supporting readout speeds of up to 120 frames per second (fps) through either a single-lane LVDS or parallel output.
The PYTHON 480 is sampling today in Monochrome and Bayer Color configurations in a RoHS-compliant CSP-67 package, with production planned for 1Q2017.
