The AR0130CS from ON Semiconductor is a 1/3 inch CMOS Digital Image Sensor with an active pixel array size of 1280 x 960 (1.2 MP). It captures images with an electronic rolling shutter readout feature and has a pixel size of 3.75 um. The device includes sophisticated camera functions such as auto exposure control, windowing, and both video and single frame modes. It has a frame rate of 45 fps at 1.2 MP and features a monochrome and RGB Bayer color filter array. The monochrome filter array has a sensitivity of 6.5 V/lux-sec and RGB Bayer has a sensitivity of 5.6 V/lux-sec.
The AR0130CS features superior low-light performance both in VGA and HD mode and is programmable through a simple two-wire serial interface. It requires a DC supply from 1.8 to 2.8 V and consumes 270 mW of power. The CMOS digital image sensor is available in a 10 x 10 mm 48 pin iLCC package. It produces extraordinarily clear, sharp digital pictures, and its ability to capture both continuous video and single frames makes it a good choice for a wide range of applications, including gaming systems, surveillance, and HD video.
