TAUFKIRCHEN, Germany, Sept. 22, 2016 — Framos GmbH has announced the FRA0261 and FRA0100 miniature CMOS sensors for endoscopy and medical technology. The 2-MP FRA0261 with CMOS-BSI technology and chip-scale packaging of 4.1 × 3.9 mm allows for endoscopes or camera modules with dimensions below 6 mm. It is particularly suited for colonoscopes, mobile and reusable endoscopes used for colonoscopies. A pixel size of 1.4 × 1.4 µm, full-HD resolution and a frame rate of 60 fps increase image quality and improve real-time capabilities. A “die” version is also available, with which endoscope manufacturers can install the sensor for a better angle of sight based on optical requirements, in any position, for instance vertical or tilted. The FRA0100 model with 1-MP resolution and a 3 × 3-mm chip-scale packaging is particularly light and suitable for round small-size endoscopes used in cardiovascular surgeries. The 1000 × 1000-pixel resolution is achieved due to the small pixel size of 1.75 × 1.75 µm.
