Teledyne e2v expands its Emerald CMOS image sensor family with the addition of a new 8.9 Megapixel detector for machine vision and intelligent traffic systems

KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 10
October 2018 - 
Teledyne e2v, a Teledyne Technologies company and global innovator of imaging solutions, announces that samples
are now available for Emerald 8M9, the newest member of the Emerald CMOS image
sensor family, which is dedicated to machine vision and Intelligent Traffic System
(ITS) applications.

Emerald 8M9 features
a small, 2.8µm low-noise global shutter pixel and differentiates from other
CMOS image sensors by providing a high 8.9 Megapixel resolution within a
compact 2/3 inch optical format. The sensor is available in two speed grades
with no restriction on features: a standard speed model (47fps @10bits) and a high
speed model (107fps @10bits) to address diverse performance requirements.


The new
sensor has a low readout noise of 2.8e-, which combined with 65% QE, provides
accurate inspection and surveillance even in low-light conditions. Emerald 8M9 also
benefits from application specific features including the unique ability to
independently configure the exposure time and position of Regions of Interest
(ROI) for several areas in the same scene. Combined with its high resolution,
this feature enables simultaneous automatic license plate recognition over
several lanes of traffic or simultaneous verification tasks using a single


Richard, Marketing Manager at Teledyne e2v, said "Emerald 8M9 is designed
specifically to address the demands of machine vision, high resolution surveillance
and traffic intelligence. The sensor is unmatched in the industry because of its
versatile feature set. For example, real-time High Dynamic Range mode allows
high resolution capture of fast moving situations from daylight to night-time
with minimum artefacts and blur effects."


Samples and demo kits are now
available and
mass production is planned for Q1
