Toshiba Launches Full HD CMOS Image Sensor for Security/Surveillance and Automotive Markets

Offers industry-leading dynamic range and fast frame rates for optimum viewing in high-contrast light conditions

TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 25, 2013Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) has launched a full HD (1080p) CMOS image sensor for the security/surveillance and automotive markets, with industry-leading(Note 1) 100dB high dynamic range (HDR), fast frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps) and color noise reduction (CNR) technology for better color reproduction in low-light conditions.

The new product "TCM5117PL" is a CIS-type 1/3 inch optical format image sensor providing high-resolution picture quality in low-to-bright light conditions making it ideal for implementation in security/surveillance cameras and automotive systems.

Toshiba's single-frame, alternate-row, dual-exposure HDR implementation in the TCM5117PL is well suited for capturing fast-moving objects compared to conventional multi-frame systems. With frame rates at 30 fps for conventional multi-frame systems, the single-frame approach, at 60 fps, promotes faster, less blurry and higher-quality images especially in high-contrast light conditions. The 2.7 um pixel size of the TCM5117PL is highly sensitive, and therefore offers better visibility and color-rich images in low-luminescent environments. In addition, the TCM5117PL is designed for long-term use, operating 24 hours a day.

The TCM5117PL has a 3.3±0.3V single-power supply and comes in a 10.5 x10.0 mm P-FLGA80 package. The device supports RAW10/RAW12 data formats.
