NSI3000 – CMOS Image Sensor Chip

The NSI3000 is designed for Machine Vision applications, is 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.

Parallel Synchronous output, configurable.
I2c + proprietary
