Unique Pixel Design Allows for Fast, Flexible Imaging at Ultra-High Resolutions

The Canon LI8020SA CMOS sensor minimizes noise without sacrificing speed by sharing floating diffusion capacitance between multiple pixels, resulting in shrunken readout circuitry and larger photodiode sizes. Progressive reading of small 1.5µm pixels occurs across 16 digital output channels to handle the enormous amount of image data created by roughly 250 million effective pixels. At full resolution, the LI8020SA CMOS sensor achieves a fast frame rate of 5 FPS. With single Region of Interest (ROI) windowing, faster frame rates can be achieved through reduced resolution, creating flexibility in performance.
