Image Sensor Cranks Up The Resolution

Teledyne e2v unveils the Emerald 67M image sensor, designed for ultra-high-resolution electronics inspection, high-end surveillance, and microscopy. The sensor features TowerJazz’s 2.5µm low-noise global shutter pixel on its 65-nm platform.  The pixel is integrated with a unique light pipe technology, offering notable angular response, more than 80-dB shutter efficiency, in a significantly small size, and with extremely low noise (one electron).

The Emerald family of sensors are suitable for deployment in high-speed interface systems including 10GigE, CoaXPress, Camera Link, and Camera Link HS.  Special features include HDR modes with up to 120dB dynamic range and a unique Region Of Interest (ROI) mode which allows multiple ROI to be captured under different exposure conditions, further improving the dynamic range of an image.

Emerald 67M has a square shape with 8k resolution per side, enabling 95% utilization of the image area for the next generation of display manufacturing, gen 10.5. The ultra-high resolution optimizes vision system movements in large product inspection, reducing system complexity and removing instabilities. It is available in two different speed grades (ultra-high speed, 60 fps and high speed, 30 fps). For sample and evaluation kit requests and a datasheet, visit the Emerald 67M image sensor page.
