Provides undistorted images of moving objects
Global shutters function enables the capturing of fast-moving objects without distortion. Texts are legible in images
Faster signal processing with lower noise
Our proprietary column A/D conversion circuit realizes both faster signal processing and lower noise. Enhancing the high-precision image inspection, it helps to improve on-site productivity in manufacturing
A wide variety of pixel sizes available
Enhanced efficiency through higher precision and shorter time is a prerequisite for realizing advanced automation, such as by replacing naked-eye visual inspection, in manufacturing and logistics. Machine vision cameras are a primary device that perform the task, and they require high-spec image sensors with improved resolution and frame rates. Launched in 2014, Pregius technology image sensors have been significantly improving productivity by offering both high speed and high precision in their performance.
Boosting the number of pixels in an image sensor to meet the demand for even higher resolution would increase the chip size, which was a problem as it would make the camera larger. Conversely, reducing the pixel size to maintain the camera size would compromise the sensitivity and signal saturation levels due to the restrained light collection area per pixel. This would inevitably lead to deterioration of image quality, and in turn to inferior recognition/detection performance.
As a solution to these issues, the PregiusS stacked CMOS image sensor with an innovative new structure was launched in 2019 and succeeded in simultaneously realizing both higher definition and a more compact size. This extensive lineup of products will contribute to rapid advances in the machine vision industry.
