The KAMELEON Color CMOS from PHOTONIS is a 1.3 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor that has a resolution of 1280 (H) x 1024 (V). This image sensor has a pixel pitch of 9.7 µm × 9.7 µm with a 16 mm diagonal sensor format. It has a rolling shutter and delivers a frame rate of up to 100 fps. This image sensor has a dynamic range of 60 dB and a maximum signal-to-noise ratio of 42 dB with an image lag of less than 0.1 %. It has a full well charge of over 25000 e- and quantum efficiency of over 60 % at peak depending on sensor configuration. This image sensor consumes less than 425 mW of power (at 60 fps) and 450 mW of power (at 100fps).
The KAMELEON Color CMOS image sensor can operate in two read-out modes: windowing Y-direction and X-Y mirroring. It has a limiting resolution of 51 lp/mm (1280 lines) and photo response non-uniformity (PRNU) of less than 2% RMS. This image sensor has 10-bit digital output (LDVS) data lanes up to full resolution. It is available in a 73-pin PGA package that measures 23 x 23 mm and is ideal for surveillance, defense, and scientific applications.
