The Pregius is global shutter pixel technology for active pixel-type
CMOS image sensors that use Sony's low-noise CCD structure,
and realizes high picture quality.
|Pixel Size||3.45 µm / 6.9 µm||4.5 µm / 9 µm|
|Number of Pixels||VGA - 12M pixels||VGA - 7.1M pixels|
In industrial applications there is often a demand to recognize the accurate form of fast-moving objects.
Until now, a rolling shutter has been used as the electronic shutter mechanism in CMOS image sensors;
therefore, unavoidable intrinsic distortion of the focal plane occurs.
Sony has incorporated Pregius, a global shutter function, into the CMOS image sensor to meet customer needs.
