On Semi has pushed out the door its Python family of CMOS image sensors that claims to provide global shuttering, 4.8um pixel size and is intended for industrial applications. The first three devices come with resolutions of 300k, 500k and 1.3MP and are geared to address the needs of machine vision, inspection and motion monitoring, as well as security and surveillance applications including intelligent transportation systems, detailed the company.

On Semi has patent coverage for in-pixel correlated double sampling, offered in the Python range, which the company claims results in CCD-like performance.

Python CMOS image sensor

The Python pixel combines a read noise of less than 9e-, with 7.7V/lux sensitivity and frame rates as high as 850fps (VGA format). A configurable sequencer also allows on-the-fly updates to the sensor configuration. The sensors operate across the -40°C to 85°C industrial temperature range.

Resolutions of VGA, SVGA and SXGA are offered by the first three sensors with higher resolutions planned for release. All are pin-to-pin compatible with one-another and with the existing VITA1300 image sensor.
