Cmosis has released the CMV8000, its latest high-speed 8 megapixel, 105fps image sensor at the VisionChina Shanghai 2014 event. The new CMV8000 strengthens Cmosis's product portfolio of global-shutter CMOS image sensors addressing the markets of machine vision, traffic ITS, microscopy, security and surveillance, and medical applications.

The CMV8000 is a 4/3-inch sensor with 3,360 x 2,496 active pixels, sized 5.5µm, using the 8T pixel architecture to offer low noise and excellent global shuttering. Row- and column-oriented optical black pixels are implemented to support additional noise cancellation techniques. From an electro-optical point-of-view the CMV8000 offers the same performance as the CMV2000 and CMV4000 image sensors.

It is system-compatible with CMV2000 and CMV4000 to facilitate the migration from CMV2000 and CMV4000 camera designs to this higher resolution image sensor. The frame rate of 105fps is achieved by using 16 LVDS outputs running at 600 Mb/s each.

Lower frame rates can be supported by multiplexing to fewer output channels. Partial readout, windowing and sub-sample modes can be programmed to support higher frame rates. At full resolution and frame rate, the power dissipation is 900mW. This power consumption can be dynamically controlled when lower frame rates are used.

Both monochrome and RGB coloured versions will be made available. It is housed in a ceramic 107-pin uPGA package and can be operated between -30 to +70°C temperature range.
