CMOS Image Sensor For High-Speed Embedded Vision Solutions


Designed to enable fast, extended range scanning and includes powerful unique patented features

Teledyne e2v, a Teledyne Technologies company announces the expansion of its Snappy family of image sensors with a new 5 Megapixel device.

The SnappyTM 5M is designed for barcode reading, 2D scanning and other demanding applications. It has a small 1/1.8 inch optical format, containing a 2.8μm, low-noise, global shutter pixel, and arranged in a 2,560 x 1,936 array. The device can stream video at ~50fps at 10 bits over a 4 wire, MIPI CSI-2 interface, and is housed in a small compact fan-out organic package.

Key Features

  • Fast Self Exposure (FSE) mode automatically calculates the optimum integration time that is applied to the first image from the device, thus imroving convergence speed and robustness.
  • Smart ROI searches for barcodes in the image frame, and reports their locations as metadata in the image footer. Up to 16 different regions can be detected simultaneously.

The Snappy family of sensors enable a number of applications including embedded industrial imaging systems, drones/UAVs, IoT edge devices, intelligent surveillance cameras and augmented reality/virtual reality.

This latest 5 Megapixel device is a member of the expanding Snappy family of sensors.


Available in both monochrome and color, samples and demo kits are available from January 2019.
