Camera equipped with second generation IMX CMOS sensor

Camera equipped with second generation IMX CMOS sensor
With the introduction of two new models incorporating second generation Sony IMX CMOS sensors with Pregius global shutter pixel technology, Allied Vision has expanded its Manta camera family. The Manta G-158 incorporates the IMX273 sensor, offering a resolution of 1.58MP and a frame rate of 75.3fps at full resolution. The Manta G-040 is equipped with the IMX287 sensor delivering a resolution of 0.40MP and a frame rate of 286fps at full resolution. Slightly higher frame rates can be achieved in burst mode.

Laser could improve processing speed of sensors

Laser could improve processing speed of sensors
Imagine creating a material for the digital information highway that allows a fast lane of laser light that zips data past the traditional silicon chips. A multi-institutional team of researchers, led by University of Arkansas engineering professor Shui-Qing “Fisher” Yu and a leading Arkansas semiconductor equipment manufacturer, have made significant improvements to a new kind of laser, a semiconducting device that is injected with light, similar to an injection of electrical current.

Deep scanning technology for fingerprint sensors

Deep scanning technology for fingerprint sensors
Imagine a fingerprint sensor with guaranteed identification success, regardless of any fingertip alteration. The INGRESS project has brought us a step closer to achieving this high-value breakthrough in a market set to be worth EUR 7.6 billion by 2022. Ever since they started appearing on smartphones in 2007, fingerprint sensors have been proving quite popular. However, they are far from perfect: any change or damage to the finger will prevent current scanners from recognising it.

Colour camera enables colorimetric effects on fast moving objects

Colour camera enables colorimetric effects on fast moving objects
  A new colour version of Specialised Imaging's SIR3 camera has been introduced. Capable of capturing up to 11-million-pixel (4,008x2,688) resolution images in 36-bit colour across a wide dynamic range, the SIR3 colour camera enables colorimetric effects on fast moving objects to be recorded clearly for the first time.

An easy-to-make curved image sensor

An easy-to-make curved image sensor
Cellphone users rely on their phone cameras to capture virtually every aspect of their lives. Far too often, however, they end up with photos that are a sub-par reproduction of reality. While operator error sometimes comes into play, the camera’s digital image sensor is the most likely culprit. A flat, silicon surface, it just can’t process images captured by a curved camera lens as well as the similarly curved image sensor — otherwise known as the retina — in a human eye.

Thermal micro-camera can be integrated as IR sensor

Thermal micro-camera can be integrated as IR sensor
Thermal imaging company, Acal BFi, is helping enable customers to easily access and design with FLIR's Lepton micro-thermal camera series, including the new Lepton 3. Joining Acal BFi’s range of FLIR solutions, including Boson and Tau cores, the recently announced thermal micro-camera offers what the company claims to be outstanding performance in an ultra-compact package.

Stacked CMOS sensor suitable for automotive cameras

Stacked CMOS sensor suitable for automotive cameras
Sony has announced the release of the IMX324, a new 1/1.7-type stacked CMOS image sensor equipped with what it claims to be the industry's highest resolution 7.42 effective megapixel RCCC filter for forward-sensing cameras in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Sony will begin shipping samples in November 2017. This image sensor is capable of approximately three times the horizontal resolution of conventional products, which enables high-definition image capture of distant road signs approximately 160m ahead of the camera.

New sony sensor creates industry standard SXGA module

New sony sensor creates industry standard SXGA module
The first of a new series of SXGA modules - the Sony XCG-CG160, has been introduced by Sony Europe’s Imaging Sensing Solutions. The camera, which features a 1/3-type IMX273 sensor, is a low-disruption way to move from CCD to GSCMOS, proves a suitable replacement for cameras using the highly-regarded Sony ICX445 CCD sensor.

Optical fibres help build a ‘billion sensors’ earthquake observatory

Optical fibres help build a ‘billion sensors’ earthquake observatory
Thousands of miles of buried optical fibres crisscross California’s San Francisco Bay Area delivering high-speed internet and HD video to homes and businesses. Biondo Biondi, a professor of geophysics at Stanford’s School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, dreams of turning that dense network into an inexpensive “billion sensors” observatory for continuously monitoring and studying earthquakes.
