PHOENIX, Dec. 9, 2014 — Designed for advanced video security cameras, the AR0230CS CMOS image sensor from ON Semiconductor is a 1⁄2.7-inch optical format device with 2.1-MP resolution and a 105 dB dynamic range.
Combining low-light capabilities with strong near-infrared performance, the sensor enables the capture of high-definition 1080p video data at a rate of 60 fps. It includes integrated support, improved motion compensation, advanced local tone mapping and digital lateral overflow to minimize motion artifacts and enhance color reproduction.
Dual-conversion gain 3.0-µm DR-Pix pixel technology is used to enhance low-light performance and broaden the dynamic range. A low-conversion gain mode is optimized to offer greater charge handling capacity in bright environments, while a high-conversion gain mode delivers increased sensitivity and reduced readout noise in low-light environments.
