General Description

The CMV20000 is a high sensitivity pipelined global shutter CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 5120 x 3840 pixels. Pipelining means that exposure during read out is possible. The state-of-the- art pixel design makes true correlated double sampling (CDS) possible which reduces the fixed pattern noise and dark noise significantly. The imager integrates 16 LVDS channels each running at 480Mbps resulting in a 30fps frame rate at full resolution (12 bits per pixel). Driving and read-out programming can be set over a serial peripheral interface. An internal timing generator produces the signals needed for read- out and exposure of the image sensor while external exposure triggering remains possible. The CMV20000 is derived from a custom CMOS image sensor. This sensor is not for sale for traffic applications.

This product suits for the following applications:

  • Machine vision
  • 3D imaging
  • Motion capture
  • Scientific
  • Medical
