AltaSens Introduces Its First-High Definition WDR CMOS Image Sensor Fully
Qualified to AEC-Q100 Standard for Automotive Uses
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Jan. 6, 2014
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --AltaSens, Inc., a
leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, is soon offering its first sensor
fully meeting all specifications at operational temperatures up to 85 °C. The
high definition CMOS imaging System-on-Chip already meets or exceeds many of
the grade-3 qualification requirements of AEC-Q100.
The AL30205C-85 and its supporting ASIC, the AltaSens Wide Dynamic Range
Processing Unit (ALWPU) with dynamically programmable wide dynamic range
signal processing, have already been fully qualified to JESD-47 along with
Qualification of Integrated Circuits and elements per JESD22, JESD85, and
JESD78. These specifications duplicate many of the requirements of the AEC
specification. The AL30205C-85 and ALWPU also meet all RoHS and REACH
environmental requirements. Sensors and ASICs qualified from zero to 60°C are
already in mass production.
The wide dynamic range chipset, including the AL30205C-85 and the ALWPU, will
be fully qualified by early 2014 to AEC-Q100 Grade 3. AltaSens will globally
market the solution to major automotive manufacturers in conjunction with its
parent company, JVC KENWOOD Corporation. The high-performance HD chipset
delivers seamless WDR HD video at 1080p30 through 1080p60 with up to 120 dB
dynamic range with a minimum of motion artifacts as enabled by its U.S. Pat.
No. 8,605,177. Full AEC-Q100 certification is anticipated in early 2014.
Demonstrations, lead times and competitive pricing are available upon
request.Camera modules are also available through multiple distributors.
AltaSens, a wholly owned subsidiary of JVC KENWOOD Corporation
(www.jvckenwood.co.jp/en/index.html), was founded in 2004 and has emerged as
the pioneer of High Definition and Wide Dynamic Range CMOS imaging technology.
AltaSens' products can be found at the heart of many high-end cameras built
for a variety of applications, including videoconference, telepresence,
