Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has released a 1/4in VGA CMOS area image sensor intended for security cameras, surveillance cameras and drive recorder applications. According to the company, the TCM3211PB features large 5.6um pixels, improving low light sensitivity. Even in moonlight, where lighting levels reach just 0.2 lux, bright images can be captured, added Toshiba.

The sensor also incorporates a single frame high dynamic range (HDR) function that realises high dynamic range of 108dB. The HDR function is based on an algorithm developed by Toshiba that simultaneously applies different exposure times to each line of an image and incorporates them into a single image.


False colouration, where sensors produce colours not true to the imaged objects, is reduced and the sensor faithfully reproduces dark and bright areas in high contrast images. The TCM3211PB's 60fps at full resolution enables smooth and seamless capture of video images in a 4:3 aspect ratio

Available in a plastic ball grid array (PBGA) package, the system contributes to the downsizing of camera surveillance systems.
