KAC-12040 Image Sensor
|Resolution:||4000 x 3000|
|Total Resolution:||12 MP|
|Pixel Size µm:||4.7|
|Max Frame Rate (fps):||60|
The KAC-12040 Image Sensor is a high-speed 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor in a 4/3” optical format based on a 4.7 μm 5T CMOS platform. The image sensor features very fast frame rate, excellent NIR sensitivity, and flexible readout modes with multiple regions of interest (ROI). The readout architecture enables use of 8, 4, or 2 LVDS output banks for full resolution readout up to 60 frames per second, and QFHD (8.3-megapixels, 16:9) readout up to 100 frames per second.
Each LVDS output bank consists of up to 8 differential pairs operating at 260 MHz DDR for a 520 MHz data rate per bank. The pixel architecture allows Rolling Shutter operation for motion capture with optimized Dynamic Range or Global Shutter for precise still image capture.
The image sensor has a pre-configured QFHD (4 x 1080p, 16:9) video mode, fully programmable ROI for windowing, programmable sub-sampling, and reverse readout (flip and mirror). Two ADCs can be configured for 8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit or 14-bit conversion and output.
Additional features include Interspersed video streams (Dual-Video), on-chip calibration, black clamping, Overflow pixel for blooming reduction, black-sun correction (anti-eclipse), column and row noise correction, and integrated timing generation with SPI control, 4:1 and 9:1 averaging decimation modes.
