Cypress LUPA-1300-2 CMOS sensor captures 500 frames per second
Cypress Semiconductor has announced that it has begun shipping trial samples of a high-sensitivity, high-speed SXGA (Super Extended Graphics Array) image sensor manufactured using CMOS technology. SXGA resolution corresponds to 1.3 megapixels. The LUPA-1300-2 is the first of its kind in the world to feature a built-in LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) interface and a synchronous shutter that supports standby and pipelined operation. Designed for machine vision and moving scene analysis systems, the sensor is capable of imaging at up to 500 frames per second.
The presence of a fully synchronous shutter allows the LUPA-1300-2 to read one frame simultaneously with the formation of the next and capture the movement of objects without distortion. The sensor includes 10-bit LVDS outputs (12 lines), which provides the ability to transfer data along the tracks on the PCB over relatively long distances, which simplifies system design. Among other features of the sensor is the function of limiting the captured area of the frame, which allows to increase the effective frame rate (the frequency of 500 frames per second corresponds to a full frame). In addition, steerable slope maintains high contrast when capturing shadow areas without losing detail in the brightest areas of the image.
Matrix LUPA-1300-2 is formed by an array of 1280 x 1024 pixels with dimensions of 14 x 14 microns. The sensor is equipped with a 10-bit A / D converter and timing circuits. Samples of the monochrome version of the sensor are currently available, the color version is in development. The start of serial production is scheduled for the third quarter of 2021.
