Image sensor offers improved performance for automotive ADAS
The new sensor technology is said to deliver 4x better low-light signal-to-noise ratio, a 40% increase in visible light sensitivity, and greater than 60% improvement in near infrared (NIR) performance than its previous offering for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The AR0136AT 1/3-inch optical format CMOS digital image sensor delivers a 1280 x 960 resolution from 3.75 micron BSI pixels. The chip supports linear and high dynamic range (HDR) modes, in a single-chip HDR solution, with a 120-dB dynamic range in HDR mode.
It has an output pixel rate of 74.25 MP/second (maximum), which results in a frame rate of 45 frames per second (fps) at 960p resolution and 60 fps at 720p resolution. It has an operating junction temperature range of -40 to +125°C and will be fully qualified to AEC-Q100. Engineering samples will be available in Q3 of 2015, with mass production planned for early 2016.
