As South Korean electronics giant Samsung Electronics seeks to expand its presence beyond smartphones and consumer electronics, it has unveiled a new automotive. Icon sensor — ISOCELL Auto 4AC — which will be used for rear view camera and car surround view monitor and will offer HD resolution images.
Samsung’s latest image sensor comes in a 1 / 3.7-inch optical format with 1.2 million 3.0 micrometers of pixels.
The new sensor is Samsung’s first imaging solution suitable for automotive applications.
Samsung plans to expand its automotive sensor lineup to areas such as camera monitor systems (CMS), autonomous driving and cabin monitoring.
Smooth transition between dark and bright areas
Dokun Chang, Executive Vice President of Sensor Business at Samsung Electronics, said, Combines proven image sensor technologies. ” A company statement said.
The ISOCL Auto 4 AC Corner offers a better field of view for the driver due to the pixel technology, with a special pixel structure that reduces the LED light by more than 90 Hz (Hz). Is.
In the same pixel area, it includes two photodiodes, a 3.0 micrometer pixel for low light images and a 1.0 micrometer pixel for a bright environment.
The new image sensor features LED flicker mitigation solutions to provide more accurate images.
Samsung said, “While the two photodiodes simultaneously capture images in different exposures, the sensor offers up to 120 dBHDR with minimal motion blur, which allows smooth transition between dark and bright areas.” While allowing further details of the road ahead. “
It also offers an advanced 120 decibel high dynamic range with minimal motion blur, enabling smooth transitions between dark and bright areas. In short, Samsung’s new automotive image sensor will make it easier to drive at night in different light directions.
According to the company, the ISOCELL Auto 4AC will meet the strict AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualification, which includes an A-40 ° C to 125 ° C operating temperature range, and is currently in mass production.
