The newly developed Pregius S line is the fourth generation of Sony CMOS image sensors incorporating Pregius technology.
The Pregius S reaches higher performance in a smaller package with stacked image sensor technology that is based on Sony’s proprietary Global Shutter function, and a back-illuminated pixel structure.
This technology allows smart embedded applications in industrial vision to benefit from imaging performance that is improved by 1.7X, while the form factor of sensor design is reduced by 40 percent.
The first samples of Sony’s new Pregius S line are now available from global vision partner FRAMOS.
Sibel Yorulmaz-Cokugur, the Sensor Expert at FRAMOS, said: “The technical development and global competition always require higher performance in a smaller package; that’s the driver for future applications and innovation. Sony’s Semiconductor Solutions R&D department has achieved a perfect result with the 4th generation of CMOS Global Shutter sensors, based on their excellent technical expertise. The new Pregius S line combines improved performance together with miniaturization, and enables customers to leverage increased productivity and smart applications in Embedded Vision and Automation.”
The new Pregius S line will be available in the Fall of 2019.
