The AR0144 from ON Semiconductor is a 1/4-inch, 1.0 Megapixel (1280H x 800V) CMOS digital image sensor. It captures clean, accurate images with no artifacts in both bright and low light conditions. Its high shutter efficiency and signal-to-noise ratio minimize ghosting and noise effects, improving overall image quality. It has a high degree of flexibility with a choice of master/video, trigger/single frame and auto trigger operating modes. Exposure time is controlled via a two-wire serial interface, and configuration of both the window size and blanking times allows the resolution and frame rate (up to 60 fps at full resolution) to be adjusted to cover a particular Region of Interest (ROI).
It is currently available in 5.6 mm x 5.6 mm 69-ball CSP packaging and also as a bare die. The AR0144 is ideal for static applications such as bar code scanners and dynamic applications such as drones. IT’s low power characteristics extend the time between charging, and its imaging performance supports better mapping of the environment for robust collision avoidance.
