Lumenera LtX45R Series

 SONY PREGIUS™ GLOBAL SHUTTER CMOS USB 3.1 GEN 1 CAMERAS 

Lumenera's USB 3.1 Gen 1 LtX45R camera series is based on Sony's Pregius™ global shutter CMOS technology and provides CCD-like performance from a CMOS sensor with increased frame rates and crisp, clear distortion-free images. Lumenera offers several GS CMOS camera models based on Sony’s 2nd generation IMX sensors ranging in resolution from 3MP to 12MP.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Global shutter CMOS
  • CCD-like performance from a CMOS sensor with increased frame rates
  • P-Iris connector for support of precise iris lens control
  • High sensitivity 3.45 um pixels (1.1x compared to the existing 1st Gen sensor with 5.86 um pixels)
  • High dynamic range, high speed, low read noise ~2e-
  • Smear-free clarity: provides smear-free still images even when strong light sources are present in frame
  • USB3 Vision
  • Windows and Linux SDKs

ABOUT SONY PREGIUS GLOBAL SHUTTER CMOS SENSORS 

Sony’s Pregius global shutter CMOS sensors combine beneficial aspects of both CCD and CMOS in a pixel design resulting in impressive performance. The Pregius sensors have an analog pixel design similar to a CCD, but with the back end resembling a CMOS sensor. This architecture takes the advantages of a CCD sensor (excellent imaging performance – including good color reproduction, low noise, and high dynamic range) along with all the digital advantages of a CMOS sensor (built-in analog-to-digital conversion, image correction, digital output and high speed) to produce a low-power, low-cost alternative to traditional CCD sensors.

ABOUT SONY'S EXMOR TECHNOLOGY

With conventional CMOS sensors, analog signals are gathered column by column and subsequently transmitted for analog-to-digital conversion. Sony’s Exmor technology used in the Pregius CMOS sensors employs a single analog-to-digital converter for every single column allowing the sensor to trigger globally. Conversion takes place right away on the chip, thus reducing the time during the integration process where noise can build up. The result is an image with far less noise when compared to conventional CMOS sensors.
