ON SemiconductorON has expanded the popular PYTHON family of CMOS image sensors with the addition of PYTHON 10K, PYTHON 12K, PYTHON 16K and PYTHON 25K.
The new high resolution devices bring together tremendous imaging performance with swift output architectures that meet and even surpass the bandwidths offered by well known industry computer interfaces (like USB 3.1, CameraLink, CoaXPress and 10GigE).
All these devices have high performance 4.5 µm pixel that facilitates global shutter imaging with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) in a compact pixel size by utilizing ON Semiconductor's patented in-pixel CDS.
Available in a µPGA-355 package, Image data can be accessed via 32, 16, 8 or 4 LVDS channels, each operating at 720 MHz, to facilitate readout speed of up to 80 fps for the 25K device.
The new devices are available in monochrome, Bayer color, and extended near-infrared configurations.
About the PYTHON Family
This family of nine devices is suitable for common industrial imaging applications like machine vision, security and intelligent transportation systems (ITS).
It is an integrated family that allows camera producers to speed up the process of manufacturing products with multiple resolutions, from VGA to over 25 MP, with minimum effort.
ON Semiconductor has a well-diversified business and an end-market focus that guarantee relatively steady revenues throughout the year.
Going forward, the strengthening of the U.S. dollar and macroeconomic headwinds are expected to moderately affect revenues as the company is naturally hedged due to its broad-based business.
ON Semiconductor expects to gain increasing traction with image sensors in the automotive market. The company's image sensors have a high penetration in the rear view camera market at the OEM level in North America, Japan and Korea.
The company has an attractive product portfolio as well as outstanding manufacturing and operational organization. Currently, it is streamlining costs. So leveraging these assets will help the company to drive revenue growth and strong cash flow.
The end-market demand trends remain favorable. Management expects all the end markets to increase sequentially in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, except industrial, which is likely to decline.
