New image sensors extend family resolution to over 25 megapixels, bringing high resolution global shutter capabilities to industrial imaging applications















High Resolution PYTHON 25K CMOS Image Sensor

PHOENIX, AZ – Oct. 15, 2015 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON ), driving energy efficient innovations, has added four new high resolution devices to its award winning PYTHON family of CMOS image sensors. Now totaling nine separate devices that provide resolutions ranging from VGA to over 25 megapixels (MP), this high performance family addresses the needs of general purpose industrial imaging applications such as machine vision, inspection and motion monitoring, security, surveillance, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS).

The new PYTHON 10K, PYTHON 12K, PYTHON 16K, and PYTHON 25K image sensors combine excellent imaging performance with high speed output architectures that meet and exceed the bandwidths available from popular industry computer interfaces such as USB 3.1, CameraLink, CoaXPress, and 10GigE. The new devices share a common high performance 4.5 µm pixel that leverages ON Semiconductor’s patented in-pixel CDS (ipCDS) technology to enable global shutter imaging with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) in a compact pixel size. Image data is accessed through 32, 16, 8, or 4 LVDS channels, each running at 720 MHz, to enable readout speeds of up to 80 fps for the 25K device. The devices are packaged in a µPGA-355 package and are available in monochrome, Bayer color, and extended near-infrared (NIR) configurations.

They join the previously released PYTHON 300, PYTHON 500, PYTHON 1300, PYTHON 2000, and PYTHON 5000 devices to form an integrated family that allows camera manufacturers to rapidly roll-out products with multiple resolutions, from VGA to over 25 MP, with greatly minimized development effort.

“Extending the PYTHON family to high resolutions brings the high performance of this CMOS image sensor family to a new set of the most demanding industrial applications,” said Herb Erhardt, Vice President and GM, Industrial and Security Division, Image Sensor Group at ON Semiconductor. “With nine separate devices now available in this family, customers can work within this portfolio to match the resolution and frame rate needs of their application without sacrificing performance.”
