South Korean firm selects Newsight sensors for camera line

South Korean firm, Jinoid, has assembled the first batch of inspection products based on CMOS image sensors from Newsight Imaging.

Newsight's NSI3000 line sensor and NSI1000 area sensor have successfully passed Jinoid's evaluation, and the first batch of a thousand chips has been provided and assembled. The two companies intend to expand the collaboration to additional use cases.

Newsight's sensor chips are being integrated into Jinoid's smart sensor families: the ZSC series, a standalone sensing system for part inspection; the Zorp series, which fits high-speed pinhole inspection systems and can use Newsight’s high frame rate sensor – up to 100,000 fps for one line of pixels in the NSI1000; and the ZPE series, which is a smart sensor for android based applications.

Newsight's recently released the NSI1000 chip, with 32 lines of 1,024 global shutter pixels, is a multi-mode sensor capable of supporting Newsight’s time-of-flight, eTOF. It works in multi-triangulation mode, which provides 32 depth points concurrently, in-pixel accumulation and multi-set configuration, which can change the chip’s functionality from a regular camera to a depth camera, frame-by-frame.
