PHOENIX — A new CCD image sensor from ON Semiconductor can capture 1080p (1920 × 1080) video in scenes with widely varying lighting conditions.
The KAE-02150 enables high-dynamic-range imaging by allowing either conventional CCD (low-gain) or EMCCD (high-gain) outputs to be used on a pixel-by-pixel basis within the same image. Signals from both outputs can then be recombined, allowing one camera to properly render bright regions in a dark field of view and enabling dynamic compensation under changing conditions, such as headlights entering or leaving an extreme low-light scene.
The device is suitable for surveillance, defense and military, scientific and medical imaging and intelligent transportation systems.
