The 3U3MRXSAAC from Canon U.S.A is a CMOS Image Sensor with a resolution of 2.8 MP. It is equipped with an HDR drive function that achieves a wide dynamic range of 120 dB at low noise levels. This wide range results in a greater ability to extract usable information even where there is a substantial difference between the lightest and darkest areas of an image. Even when using the sensor during normal drive operation, the sensor can achieve a dynamic range of 75 dB.
With a diagonal size of 7.75 mm, the 3U3MRXSAAC features approximately 2.8 million effective pixels (1936 x 1456), a pixel size of 3.2 x 3.2 μm and a frame rate of 60 fps (30 fps during HDR drive operation). The sensor is compatible with the MIPI CSI-2 interface used by consumer-oriented cameras for a wide variety of purposes.
The Canon 3U3MRXSAAC sensor is equipped with functionality that mitigates dark current due to increased temperatures. The sensor is able to maintain high image quality while operating in environments with extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to 105°C. It is suitable for automotive, camera OEM’s, defense, intelligent traffic systems, machine vision, R&D, scientific, robotic vision, security & surveillance applications.
