e2v unveils its high resolution EV76C570 industrial CMOS imaging sensor
Published on 7 June 2012
The higher resolution EV76C570 is the latest addition to e2v’s renowned industrial CMOS imaging sensor range. The device features an identical CLCC48 package with only a minor change in hardware, and retains optical compatibility with the 1.3MP Sapphire sensor that is already in full production. A 1/1.8 inch optical format is retained thanks to the reduced pixel size of 4.5µm x 4.5µm. The SPI register banks are also virtually identical, therefore customers who have developed vision systems around the Sapphire (EV76560) and/or Ruby (EV76C660 & EV76C661)1.3MP sensors are able to implement the new EV76C570 to extend their product portfolio with minimal extra development efforts.
Applications for the EV76C570 range from machine vision and smart cameras, to print or barcode scanning, and also outdoor cameras for traffic and surveillance applications. It also has some new and unique modes of operation for 3D imaging applications that e2v will be announcing separately.
Gareth Powell, marketing manager of industrial imaging sensors at e2v said “The market success and growing cost/performance reputation of our Sapphire and Ruby devices have paved the way for this new addition to the family. The increased resolution is well timed with advances in processing speeds and with the emergence of new higher speed interfaces like USB3.0.”
