The NSI3000 is specifically designed for Lidar applications, using 8 rows of 2048 pixels made of 4 rows of 4µm x 8µm pixels and 4 rows of 4µm x 4µm pixels. Binning of the large pixels provides high sensitivity while the small pixels can provide a fine signal with effective resolution of 8192 with low power dissipation and compact size.
The NSI3000 is designed for programmable high frame rate speeds, allowing better analysis and reaction to events.
The sensor is manufactured in CMOS technology, with extremely high sensitivity pixels. The high sensitivity allows the sensor to replace more expensive CCD sensors in many applications.
