High Speed Image Capture in 5 Megapixel Resolution

With an electronic shutter and all pixel progressive readout of 120 fps, the Canon 3U5MGXS 5MP CMOS sensor offers fast, distortion free image capture. In a 2/3″ format, proprietary pixel designs with low power consumption and enhanced sensitivity further improve performance. The 3U5MGXS CMOS sensor is an innovative solution where high performance is required in a small format. This CMOS sensor family is available in monochrome (3U5MGXSMAA), color (3U5MGXSCAA) and a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (3U5MGXSIBA).

Enhanced Solutions with RGB-NIR Pixel Filter

By replacing one of the green filters on a standard color CMOS sensor with a Near Infra-Red (NIR) filter, image processing from these sensors allows for the separation and discrete analysis of the visible and NIR wavelengths. Discrete analysis of these bands from a single image simplifies dual sensor systems by reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements; provides added capabilities to systems that can benefit from the additional band; and enhances current solutions already detecting in both the NIR and visible wavelengths with fast, distortion free imaging.

New Pixel Design and Drive Technology

The pixels of the Canon 3U5MGXS CMOS sensor include a gathering structure which enables photons entering from wide incident angles to be re-directed into the photodiode which otherwise would be lost. The result is a CMOS image sensor with higher sensitivity, capable of capturing high quality images even in challenging low-light situations.
