Canon 3U5MGXSBA 5MP CMOS sensor

High Speed Image Capture in 5 Megapixel Resolution

With an electronic shutter and all pixel progressive readout of 120 fps, the Canon 3U5MGXSBA 5MP CMOS sensor offers fast, distortion-free image capture. In a 2/3″ format, proprietary pixel designs with low power consumption and enhanced sensitivity further improve performance. The 3U5MGXSBA CMOS sensor is an innovative solution where high performance is required in a small format. This CMOS sensor family is available in monochrome (3U5MGXSBAM), color (3U5MGXSBAC) and a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (3U5MGXSBAI).

Enhanced Solutions with RGB-NIR Pixel Filter

By replacing one of the green filters on a standard color CMOS sensor with a Near Infra-Red (NIR) filter, image processing from these sensors allows for the separation and discrete analysis of the visible and NIR wavelengths. Discrete analysis of these bands from a single image simplifies dual sensor systems by reducing the size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements; provides added capabilities to systems that can benefit from the additional band; and enhances current solutions already detecting in both the NIR and visible wavelengths with fast, distortion-free imaging.

New Pixel Design and Drive Technology

The pixels of the Canon 3U5MGXSBA CMOS sensor include a gathering structure which enables photons entering from wide incident angles to be re-directed into the photodiode which otherwise would be lost. The result is a CMOS image sensor with higher sensitivity, capable of capturing high quality images even in challenging low-light situations.
