Teledyne e2v has launched a 2 Megapixel compact module with a pre-focused, industrial-grade scanning optic and MIPI interface for scanning, embedded vision and other computer vision applications.

The 2MP optical module includes the Snappy 2MP CMOS sensor with a 2.8 µm low-noise global shutter pixel. The sensor is designed specifically for scanning and embedded vision applications using the e2v Fast Self-Exposure mode that ensures the first, and all subsequent frames, are correctly exposed. This enables the fastest possible decoding/image processing by the downstream digital system, even in rapidly changing light conditions.

The module has a 20 mm x 20 mm x 16 mm mechanical outline and is fitted with a custom-designed, high depth of field, high quality lens for applications that typically require a greater working range. Semi-customization is possible when alternative optical specifications are required.

The 2MP module offers significant reduction in development time and cost savings as only a few screws are needed to mount the module, with simple connection to the image processing system through an FPC cable connector. Software development efforts can also be reduced by using some limited API-layer Linux software drivers. This enables the module to be interfaced to popular ISP platforms.

“This 2MP optical module is an exciting launch and the fore-runner in a family of MIPI modules. It provides customers with a solution to significantly reduce their integration times and shorten their time to market,” said Gareth Powell, Senior Marketing Manager at Teledyne e2v.
