High-resolution rolling shutter image sensors combining proprietary technologies

Overview

Sony’s high-resolution rolling shutter image sensors are used for various types of visual inspections for industrial applications. They enjoy deep-rooted popularity and an excellent reputation for their high sensitivity that enables effective photoelectric conversion with low noise and high resolution even under limited light conditions, and also for their extensive size variation.

Features

Low noise

Sony’s rolling shutter image sensors are renowned for their low noise performance. While controlling the noise within the pixels that handle photoelectric conversion, they also perform two rounds of noise removal, before and after A/D conversion, providing clear images with less noise even at the same number of pixels, thereby contributing to low-noise camera design.

High sensitivity

The secondary characteristic of Sony’s rolling shutter image sensors is their high sensitivity. The back-illuminated structure allows them to take more light into the photodiodes than image sensors with a front-illuminated structure, achieving higher sensitivity. Some of our rolling shutter image sensors are outfitted with highly sensitive STARVIS technology,* which is renowned even for its use in security cameras.

IMX455ALK-K, IMX571BLR-J, IMX226CLJ, IMX533CLK,IMX335LLN

Large image sensor lineup

C-mount lens compatible image sensors are a standard option for industrial machines, but larger unit multi-pixel sensors will enable high-definition imaging of wider areas.

Our lineup of rolling shutter image sensors includes large image sensors of more than 35 mm in size. For example, comparing a 1-type with 9 million pixels (the IMX533) and a 4.2-type with 151 million pixels (the IMX411), the latter can cover about 17 times the area as the former, even at the same pixel size. While using a large image sensor results in a bigger camera, it also leads to better productivity through reduced imaging frequency and better recognition accuracy through high resolution.
