Sony IMX661 127.68 megapixel CMOS image sensor launch with a global shutter function.
This is the highest effective pixel count in the industry.
Sony says this can provide an optical size nearly 10 times larger than of a typical 1.1-type image sensor corresponded to a C Mount.
The sensor uses Sony’s global shutter pixel technology called “Pregius”.
It can capture moving images without distortion.
Sony says that the IMX661 3.6-type image sensor is configure to enable four times faster image readout speeds compared to conventional CMOS image sensors.
When did Sony IMX661 Coming
The Sony IMX661 will start shipping in April 2021 in Black, Colour, and White variants.
Sony says that it has been design to capture wide viewing angle with no motion distortion in a single imaging operation.
The large format CMOS image sensor has a diagonal optical size of 56.73mm and a pixel size of 3.45μm.
The high-resolution imaging of the Sony IMX661 is also to improve recognition precision and deliver a high level of processing performance.
Sony says that this can be use for wide-area monitoring and aerial photography among a variety of industrial equipment applications.
The Sony IMX661 is claime to have been configure to also improve on the image readout speed to offset the increased signal processing volume that comes with the increase in pixel count.
Its image readout speed is four times faster compare to the Sony IMX253 1.1-type, 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor.
The new Sony IMX661 127.68-megapixel image sensor is capable of delivering 21.8fps in 10-bit shooting.
The new Sony image sensor comes equip with a variety of signal processing capabilities require for industrial equipment like trigger synchronisation for controlling imaging timing, multi-exposure for detecting the trajectory of moving objects, short exposure time for blur-free imaging of objects moving at high speeds, and pixel binning readout to enhance sensitivity in low light situations.
