Teledyne e2v has expanded its MIPI product portfolio with a 2 Megapixel compact module featuring a pre-focused, industrial-grade scanning optic.
This MIPI interfaced module finds a variety of uses in scanning, embedded vision and many other computer vision applications to enhance productivity and throughput in logistics, sorting, retail POS, and many other industrial sectors.
The 2MP optical module includes a small, state-of-the-art Snappy 2MP CMOS sensor which features a 2.8 µm low-noise global shutter pixel.
Designed specifically for scanning and embedded vision applications, the sensor includes Teledyne e2v’s patented Fast Self-Exposure™ mode that ensures the first, and all subsequent frames, are correctly exposed, enablig the fastest possible decoding/image processing by the downstream digital system, even in rapidly changing light conditions.
The module has a 20 mm x 20 mm x 16 mm mechanical outline and is fitted with a custom-designed, high depth of field, high quality lens for applications that typically require a greater working range. Semi-customisation is possible when alternative optical specifications are required.
As a turnkey sensor/optics for imaging systems, the 2MP module offers significant reduction in development time and cost.
Gareth Powell, senior marketing manager at Teledyne e2v, said: “This 2MP optical module is an exciting launch and the fore-runner in a family of MIPI modules. It provides customers with a solution to significantly reduce their integration times and shorten their time to market.”
