As consumer demand for safety cameras is increasing, car manufacturers are now beginning to offer dash cams as standard equipment. In response to this, ON Semiconductor is offering a fully AEC-Q100 qualified version of its popular 2.1 MP CMOS image sensor.
The new AR0237 is ideal for the burgeoning OEM-fitted dash cam or before-market in-car DVR market.
On Semi noted in the post: “With the application moving into the before-market category, there is mounting demand from the automotive industry for a solution that can operate across the full automotive operating temperature range of -40°C to +105°C and deliver the right performance at the right price point.”
Therefore, ON Semi has launched the new AR0237AT, a cost-optimized, automotive qualified (AEC-Q100) version of the same sensor selected by many manufacturers producing after-market dash cams, which offers Full HD video capture at 1080p/60fps, as well as still image capture.
The low-light performance of the AR0237AT is further improved when it is coupled to a Clarity enabled DVR processor.
“The AR0237AT delivers the same outstanding performance as the non-automotive qualified part, providing impressive daytime color and nighttime near-infrared image capture from the same sensor,” said Ross Jatou, Vice President, and General Manager, Automotive Solutions Division of Image Sensor Group at ON Semiconductor.”
The AR0237AT is now available in an IBGA-80 package, measuring 10 mm x 10 mm.
