ON Semiconductor Introduces CMOS Global Shutter Image Sensor for Machine Vision and Mixed Reality Applications
October 08, 2020
Together with the AP1302 Image Signal Processor (ISP), the AR0234CS delivers a comprehensive camera system that can be designed and developed for ideal time-to-market.
ON Semiconductor has introduced the AR0234CS 2.3 Mp CMOS image sensor with global shutter technology. The sensor is designed for a variety of applications including machine vision cameras, AR/VR/MR headsets, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), and barcode readers.
According to the company, the AR0234CS captures 1080p video and single frames operating up to 120 frames per second (fps). With its shutter efficiency, the 2.3 Mp sensor produces ideal images by minimizing frame-to-frame distortion in high-speed scenes and reducing the motion artifacts other image sensors experience.
The AR0234CS sensor’s pixel architecture delivers high dynamic range needed to support lighting conditions from the darkness of night to bright sunlight. The low noise and improved low-light response makes it suitable for applications spanning across consumer, commercial & industrial IoT, and the extended operating temperature range makes it deployable in challenging outdoor conditions.
Other features of the AR0234CS include: programmable regions of interest with on-chip histogram, auto exposure control and 5 x 5 statistics engine, fully integrated strobe illumination control, a flexible row and column skip mode, along with horizontal and vertical mirroring, windowing, and pixel binning.
Together with the AP1302 Image Signal Processor (ISP), the AR0234CS delivers a comprehensive camera system that can be designed and developed for ideal time-to-market. Additionally, system designers can access the DevSuite software to evaluate features and capabilities, configure and tune the sensor, and provide an output that is usable for further image processing.
The AR0234CS is offered in color and mono variants, with 0° or 28° CRA. Samples and development hardware are available now through local ON Semiconductor sales support representatives and authorized distributors.
