Global Shutter Sensor targets computer vision applications.

April 8, 2014

Featuring 3-micron OmniPixel3-GS™ global shutter pixel, 1/10.5 in. Model OV6211 can capture full 400 x 400 video at 120 fps, enabling smear-free B/W image capture in landscape and portrait modes. Device supports gesture recognition, eye tracking, depth and motion detection, and biometrics. In light sensing mode, OV6211 wakes up from sleep only when change in light has been detected. In ultra-low power mode, sensor reduces resolution and frame rates to conserve additional power. Read More

Optical Chopper/Shutter offers 10 ms response with no click.

April 23, 2013

Featuring variable frequency from DC–25 Hz, Model CH-62 consists of blade mounted on motor with limited rotation angle. Current in one direction will set chopper to open position, while current in other direction will set chopper to close position. In internal mode, CH-62 is used as variable low frequency chopper with frequency set by internal oscillator adjustable from 1–25 Hz. In external mode, CH-62 is used as chopper or shutter and is controlled by external TTL signal input up to 25 Hz.  Read More
