The KAI-50140 is designed in a 2.18 to 1 aspect ratio to match the format of modern smartphones, reducing the number of image captures required to inspect a full display.
The 4.5 µm Interline Transfer CCD pixel used in the KAI-50140 provides high resolution with an electronic (global) shutter while preserving critical imaging performance.
The device supports frame rates up to 4 fps through the use of flexible 1, 2, or 4 output readout architecture, and shares the same pin definitions as both the 29 MP KAI-29050 and KAI-29052 as well as the KAI-43140 image sensors.
This allows the KAI-50140 to be incorporated into existing camera designs with only minor electrical changes – speeding time-to-market for adoption of the new device.
The KAI-50140 is sampling today with production planned by the end of 2018, and is available in a ceramic PGA package in both monochrome and Bayer Color configurations.
