Sensor module is designed for embedded video applications

Based on Sunex Optics’ 4k miniature DSL255 SuperFishEye lens, the MOD2552 sensor module is the company’s first sensor module designed for digital video device development with embedded vision.

The high-resolution module provides up to 12Mpixel resolution images and incorporates a Sony 1/2.3 type CMOS image sensor that includes an active pixel array of 4072H x 3062V. The MOD255I sensor module can be used in manufacturing consumer and security devices capable of continuous video and still images. The MOD255I module and all Sunex lenses are available from Framos.

The MOD255I module is a compact design for easy integration into any embedded vision application, such as security and surveillance, drones, immersive imaging, video communication, IoT, and consumer devices. Sony’s IMX477 CMOS consumer sensor delivers 12Mpixel at 60 frames per second, or 4K2K video at the same frame rate. The fully integrated and dynamically aligned lens provides a wide 190 degree field of view at a design image circle of 4.3mm.

The MOD2551 has thermal stability and low power source requirements and consumption, making it suitable for security and industrial action cameras delivering high-resolution video in real-time for indoor and outdoor applications. Example applications are drones, bank machines, smart home surveillance, board-room video, or sports cameras.

The module’s MIPI interface offers four bus lanes at 2.1Gbits per second for 12bit digital output with both line scan and frame rate synchronisation. The MOD255I module provides electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance to minimise interference in truly embedded systems and devices. The actively aligned lens is claimed to demonstrate improved and uniform image quality.

Framos specialises in the embedded vision space through imaging and image processing. Its portfolio of modules is backed by a dedicated team of industry and product experts and the company supports the integration of the new modules into their applications and projects.
