Sony Europe has introduced the first in a new series of SXGA modules - the Sony XCG-CG160. The camera, which features a 1/3-type IMX273 sensor, is a low-disruption way to move from CCD to GSCMOS - an ideal replacement for cameras using the company’s ICX445 CCD sensor. The first modules use the GigE standard, running at 75 frames per second in SXGA resolution. The device provides a simple migration path from CCD to GSCMOS without necessarily having to upgrade or change architecture. The device shares comparable sensor and pixel size characteristics with the Sony ICX445, but offers huge technological improvements in sensitivity, dynamic range, noise reduction and frame rate capability. The camera’s performance is further enhanced through the company’s world renowned know how in camera design. Matt Swinney, senior marketing manager, Sony Image Sensing Solutions, commented: “These cameras again bring together Sony’s renowned module engineering with the best of Sony’s sensor technology, extracting the best possible image from the IMX273 with additional performance enhancing unique features. With it, we believe, we have set the industry standard for an SXGA module.”
