Image sensor makes cars safer

Onsemi has launched its Hyperlux automotive image sensor family. With a 2.1µm pixel size, 150dB ultra high dynamic range (HDR) and LED flicker mitigation (LFM) across the full automotive temperature range, the family is designed to provide high performance, speed and advanced features for next generation Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).


The Hyperlux family spans products with resolutions from three to eight megapixel and higher, catering to both sensing and viewing camera applications. With an HDR of 150dB, it captures high quality images under the most extreme lighting conditions without sacrificing lowlight sensitivity. The LFM capability of the platform ensures that pulsed light sources do not appear to flicker and thereby avoids flicker-induced machine vision issues.


Desay SV’s deputy general manager of the Intelligent Driving Sensor Business Unit, Huohong Jiang, said: “With the new Hyperlux technology, automotive OEMs and tier ones can expect proven high performance in all operating conditions to accelerate more advanced safety and convenience features.”
