Truesense sees CMOS sensor

Kodak spin-off Truesense Imaging announced its first CMOS sensor targeting applied imaging markets such as machine vision, intelligent transportation systems, and surveillance.

The 12-megapixel KAC-12040 combines high resolution with very high frame rate, flexible readout, and excellent near-IR sensitivity, the company says, “features that address the critical requirements of many current and emerging imaging applications.”

Based on a 4.7-micron pixel, the platform provides both global and rolling shutter for versatile image capture, very high frame rate, and excellent near-IR sensitivity, Truesense adds.

The sensor is available in monochrome and Bayer color configurations, and is sampling today with production planned for Q2, 2013.
