50Mpixel CCD image sensor inspects smartphone displays

More efficient inspection of smartphone displays is promised with the 50Mpixel KAI-50140 Interline Transfer CCD image sensor. ON Semiconductor claims that it is the highest resolution Interline Transfer CCD image sensor available and able to provide   the critical imaging detail and high image uniformity needed for the inspection of smartphone displays but also circuit board and mechanical assembly inspection and aerial surveillance.

The KAI-50140 is designed in a 2.18:1 aspect ratio to match the format of modern smartphones, reducing the number of image captures required to inspect a full display. The 4.5 micron Interline Transfer CCD pixel used in the KAI-50140 provides high resolution with a true electronic (global) shutter while preserving critical imaging performance, continues ON Semiconductor. The sensor supports frame rates up to four frames per second through the use of flexible one, two, or four output readout architecture, and shares the same pin definitions as the company’s 29Mpixel KAI-29050 and KAI-29052 as well as the KAI-43140 image sensors. As a result, the KAI-50140 can be incorporated into existing camera designs with only minor electrical changes.

The KAI-50140 is sampling today with production planned by the end of 2018, and is available in a ceramic PGA package in both monochrome and Bayer Color configurations.

ON Semiconductor supplies semiconductor-based, energy efficient, power management, analogue, sensors, logic, timing, connectivity, discrete, SoC and custom devices for the automotive, communications, computing, consumer, industrial, medical, aerospace and defence applications.

It has a network of manufacturing facilities, sales offices and design centres in key markets throughout North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions.
