Image sensor developer Panavision Imaging and specialty foundry Tower Semiconductor have announced production of Panavision's family of DLIS-2K re-configurable line scan CMOS image sensors.
The sensors were developed using Tower Semiconductor's Advanced Photo Diode pixel process and pixel IP, together with Panavision's own Imager Architecture.
The DLIS-2K imager is a quad line sensor with 11-bit A/D, high dynamic range and correlated multi-sampling for enhanced sensitivity, as well as featuring ambient light subtraction in combination with up to 12 bit digitisation and auto-thresholding.
"Tower's CMOS Image Sensor technology and manufacturing capabilities are world-class and the close interaction between our design team and Tower's engineers helped us to achieve quick ramp to production," commented Jeffrey Zarnowski, chief technical officer at Panavision.
In July last year, Panavision Imaging introduced two new linear re-configurable CMOS digital line-scan image sensors, the DLIS-2K and the DLIS-4K, featuring oversampling for enhanced sensitivity and high dynamic range imaging.
