Ximea announces new camera models with Sony CMOS Pregius S sensors
Ximea has announced the addition of new models with Sony CMOS Pregius S sensors. The initial line up will start with camera models based on IMX540, IMX541, IMX542 and continue with other sensors from the Sony 4th Generation Pregius S family.
Features include small pixel size in combination with backside illumination technology (BSI). The small pixel allows even the sensors with high resolution of 24.5 Mpix to stay very compact, enabling closer proximity for multi camera setups. Bur Ximea says this shrinking in size does not lead to compromises in the imaging quality.
All of the sensors offer Global shutter readout making them ideal not only for scientific applications, but also for systems where objects move at a higher speed. To leverage the miniature size of Sony sensors, Ximea has integrated them into a form factor measuring only 26 x 26 x 33 mm and weighing 38 grams.
Power requirements are as low as 3 Watt which allows the cameras to be bus powered directly through the cable. There are high speed versions for each of the sensor resolutions.
