e2v’s Sapphire family of CMOS image sensors has been expanded to include a new 2-megapixel variant, which is manufactured with a microlens designed to accept a Chief Ray Angle (CRA) as low as zero degrees.
The new sensor can be used with the same electronic and optical interfaces as the standard Sapphire 2-megapixel EV76C570, making it ideal as a drop-in replacement. This enables existing camera systems to serve new applications, or offer improved performance in current applications (such as machine vision) due to better image uniformity and reduced shading artifacts.
