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.
