VGA Sensor Features Big Pixels And Super-Fast Frame Rates

Available from FRAMOS, the Sony IMX426 Pregius third generation Global Shutter CMOS image sensor provides a 9-µm pixel size and reaches VGA resolution with 1,449 fps at 10-bits. VGA resolution is sufficient to solve numerous tasks in factory automation and ITS.


The IMX426 is a diagonal 9.2-mm, 1/1.7 format type of imager with a square pixel pitch of 9-µm. The Pregius global shutter pixel technology for active pixel-type CMOS image sensors that use Sony's low-noise CCD structure realizes high picture quality. Working with an SLVS-EC high-speed interface, the sensor reaches a read-out speed up to 1,594 fps at an 8-bit resolution.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The chip operates with analog 3.3V, digital 1.2V, and interface 1.8V triple power supplies with low power consumption. Evaluation samples are available from FRAMOS immediately, mass production starts end of 2018 with monochrome and middle of Q1 2019 with color version. For more details, visit FRAMOS.
