It offers one of the highest resolutions available for compact 29 mm x 29 mm cameras and maximises the image capture area
Providing high quality, global shutter imaging for factory automation is the new XGS 16000, a 16 Megapixel (Mp) image sensor that consumes only 1 watt at 65 frames per second (fps), delivering great performance at low power. Artefacts such as motion blur and distortion will be avoidable using a global shutter approach. It also offers one of the highest resolutions available for standard 29 mm x 29 mm industrial cameras. Applications include robotics, intelligent inspection systems, machine vision inspection and industrial automation.
The XGS 16000 has been designed in a unique 1:1 square aspect ratio, which maximises the image capture area within the optical circle of the camera lens and ensures optimal light sensitivity. This further enables sensor compatibility with 29 mm2 industry-standard camera formats using commercially available C-Mount lenses, facilitating optimal use of the available field of view and sensor area for the physical size of the camera.
To simplify new camera designs, the company offers colour and mono versions of the XGS 16000 X-Cube and X-Celerator developer kits. High-speed conversion to MIPI interface examples are provided with the reference design kits to allow for a quicker integration into standard FPGA evaluation environments.
Thanks to the common architecture and footprint shared by XGS 16000 with other XGS CMOS image sensors, manufacturers can use a single camera design to develop products in different resolutions. Supporting up to 65 frames per second readout at full resolution, the sensor is available in various speed grades, all with Bayer colour or monochrome options.
Toshiba Teli, specialising in the development and manufacturing of high-performance cameras for applications including machine vision, medical imaging and security, has integrated the XGS 16000 into its new 16 Mp industrial camera, the DDU1607MG/MC, which can deliver 16 Mp monochrome and colour resolution at over 47 fps with a unique technology of DUAL USB3 interface.
