SmartSens launches CMOS Image Sensors to empower Intelligent Vehicles
SmartSens today launched two advanced automotive CMOS image sensors — SC100AT and SC410GS — designed to enable the next generation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
The SC100AT and SC410GS are the first offerings in the SmartSens Automotive Series, and are optimized to deliver fast, clear, and high-quality video in the complex and demanding environments of mission critical automotive applications.
The SC100AT ensures reliable performance in a broad range of mainstream automotive applications. With AEC-Q100 certification and an ultra-high dynamic range of up to 140dB—the sensor delivers excellent results in extremely variable lighting conditions, from dark garages and tunnels to direct sunlight.
SmartSens’ proprietary PixGain HDR® technology also gives the SC100AT the ability to produce readout noise levels as low as 0.58e-, resulting in clear and detailed night vision in low-light environments. The sensor’s primary use cases include blind spot monitoring, side-view mirror replacement, parking assistance, driving recording, back-up monitoring, and vehicle surround view.
The SC410GS is the latest solution in SmartSens SmartGS® Series. It uses 4 million BSI pixels compared to the 3 million widely used in today’s intelligent transportation systems. Its proprietary global shutter technology accurately captures fast-moving objects with no tail shadows or image distortion.
Together, these attributes significantly improve the efficiency of image recognition systems and traffic management applications—such as highway bayonet cameras, traffic junction monitoring, and parking lot toll bayonets—by quickly and accurately capturing detailed information in dark and high-speed traffic environments.
The innovative HDR technology behind the high-sensitivity BSI pixel also processes up to 12000mV/Lux-s, helping to resolve overexposures of signal lights at night.
“Recent growth in the construction and development of intelligent transportation systems around the world are creating new demand for image sensors that can empower smart cars and intelligent traffic management. Our SC100AT and SC410GS combine our CMOS sensor leadership with automotive-specific design that delivers the next level of reliability and performance required for tomorrow’s driving experiences,” said James Ouyang, Deputy General Manager of SmartSens.
SmartSens SC100AT and the SC410GS image sensors are available for testing immediately.
