Image Sensor Demonstrates Early Warning Road Safety
Designed for automotive front vision applications, Melexis’ MLX75307 CMOS image sensor proactively alerts the driver of potential dangers. The component utilizes a pixel matrix capable of extending the input and output dynamic ranges, and a low-light response boost. Using the EMVA1288 standard, the 12-bit performance is said to be limited by shot noise at ambient temperatures and to detect NIR light irradiance below 500 photons per pixel at a frame rate of 150 fps. The sensor suits Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), high beam assist, night vision, tunnel entrance and exit, and application fusion.
