e2v has introduced a new high spec 1.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor, with embedded features, for industrial imaging. Featuring dual "true global" and "rolling" shutter modes, the EV76C560 is the first in a family of high-sensitivity CMOS imagers aimed specifically at industrial machine vision, barcode scanning, surveillance, and other demanding imaging applications. This new device is ideal for applications requiring superior low-light performance or where very short integration times are necessary (for example in high-speed video-streaming applications), or where illumination power must be minimized. The 1280 x 1024 imager comprises 5.3 µm pixels with a unique architecture that ensures very high-efficiency global shuttering (3000:1) while maintaining excellent quantum efficiency (QE). It outputs full resolution images in a 10-bit parallel format at 60 frames/s. Furthermore, with the ability to switch 'on the fly' to a true 4T electronic rolling shutter mode, users can optimize the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) performance against available lighting and scene motion content-capture requirements.
