ON Semiconductor has introduced the AR0234CS 2.3Mp CMOS image sensor with global shutter technology. The high-performance sensor is intended for a mixture of applications including machine vision cameras, AR/VR/MR headsets, autonomous mobile robots and barcode readers.
The sensor captures 1080p video and single frames operating up to 120fps. With its industry-leading shutter efficiency, the 2.3Mp sensor delivers crisp and clear images by minimising frame-to-frame distortion in high-speed scenes and lowering the motion artefacts other image sensors experience.
The sensor’s innovative pixel architecture delivers high dynamic range required to support lighting conditions from the darkness of night to bright sunlight. The low noise and enhanced low-light response make it ideal for applications covering consumer, commercial and industrial IoT, and the extended operating temperature range makes it deployable in tough outdoor conditions.
“The need for quality image sensing is increasing, as more manufacturers are automating with vision-based expert systems,” said Gianluca Colli, vice president and general manager, Industrial and Consumer Sensor Division Group at ON Semiconductor. “That demand requires optimising size, performance and power of the image sensor. ON Semiconductor is one of the first manufacturers to recognise and respond to this need with the AR0234CS.”
