The KAI-29050 from ON Semiconductor is a 29-megapixel CCD image sensor based on an advanced 5.5 micron Interline Transfer CCD Platform. The sensor has broad dynamic range, excellent imaging performance, and a flexible readout architecture that enables the use of 1, 2, or 4 outputs for full resolution readout up to 4 frames per second. A vertical overflow drain structure suppresses image blooming and enables electronic shuttering for precise exposure control.
The sensor is available with a Sparse Color Filter Pattern, a technology which provides a 2x improvement in light sensitivity compared to a standard color Bayer part. The sensor shares common PGA pin-out and electrical configurations with other devices based on the 5.5-micron Interline Transfer CCD Platform, allowing a single camera design to be leveraged to support multiple members of this sensor family. It is available in a 72 pin PGA package and is ideal for security, medical imaging, industrial imaging, and inspection applications.
