CMOSIS has unleashed the upgraded version of the CMV 12000 that operates with a frame rate of 300fps. Volume production will ramp up towards the end 2Q14. Engineering samples will be available for purchase in February of the same year.

CMOSIS' CMV12000 targets a range of demanding applications in the areas of process automation and motion control, the rapidly developing 4K HD TV broadcasting environment, as well as vision-supported traffic management systems. These applications require high frame rates and a broad dynamic range to capture fast moving events, often under unfavorable lighting conditions. The 12MP image sensor CMV12000, featuring a high dynamic range coupled with its global shutter operation, is intended for such demanding situations. CMV12000 offers 8, 10 and 12bit resolution. The 300 full frames of 4,096 x 3,072 pixels per second are offered in 10bit mode.

CMV 12000

The CMV 12000 product features 5.5 x 5.5µm pixels laid out in a high-resolution 4096 x 3072 matrix covering superHD (4k) resolution in an APS-C optical format. Using the patented 8T pixels the sensor offers high sensitivity and low noise and global shutter.

The 300 full frames per second are achieved by using 64 LVDS outputs running at 600Mb/s each. Lower frame rates can be supported by multiplexing to fewer output channels. Partial read out, windowing and subsamples modes, can be programmed to support higher frame rates. At full resolution and frame rate, the power dissipation is 3W. This power consumption can be dynamically controlled when lower frame rates are used.

Driving and programming the on-chip features such as high dynamic range (HDR) modes, offset and gain programming and power dissipation control is done over a 3-wire read-write SPI control.

Both monochrome and RGB colored variants of the CMV12000 image sensor are in production. It is housed in a ceramic 247-pins uPGA package and can be operated in the -30°C to 70°C temperature range. This extended temperature range makes the CMV12000 perfectly suited for most demanding and robust industrial, broadcasting, intelligent traffic solutions, machine vision and motion capture applications.
