The Mira130 from ams AG is a 1.3 MP global shutter NIR CMOS image sensor with excellent Quantum Efficiency in the near-infrared range. It is available in a 1/4-inch optical format that delivers monochrome images with an effective pixel array of 1080 H × 1280 V and supports complex on-chip operations such as high dynamic range (HDR) mode, external triggering, windowing, horizontal or vertical mirroring. Its maximum frame rate is 120 fps at a full image resolution. On-chip registers can be accessed via the standard I²C interface. It uses a 10/8-bit 4lane MIPI / 10/8-bit 4lane LVDS interface for output. Apart from these, there is an integrated temperature sensor present in this device.
The main target application for this sensor is 3D-enabled consumer devices. The state-of-the-art NIR performance of Mira130 allows outstanding power consumption reduction of 3D systems in which this sensor is used. This device is widely used in applications such as Machine Vision, Bar code Scanning, Motion Monitoring, 3D Structured Light, 3D Active Stereo Systems, 2D NIR Imaging, etc.
