CMOS Image Sensor CMV4000

The CMV4000 is a high sensitivity, pipelined global shutter CMOS image sensor with 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution capable of HD format. Pipelining allows exposure during read out. The state-of-the-art pixel architecture offers true correlated double sampling (CDS) reducing the fixed pattern noise and dark noise significantly. The imager integrates 16 LVDS channels each running at 480 Mbps resulting in a 180 fps frame rate at full resolution at 10 bit per pixel. Driving and read-out are programmed over a serial peripheral interface. An internal timing generator produces the signals needed for read-out and exposure control of the image sensor. External exposure triggering remains possible. A 12 bit per pixel mode is available at reduced frame rate.

At this moment 2 versions of the CMV4000 are offered in production. Version 3 has been released in the summer of 2012 and offers on-chip PLL, black sun-protection and additional gain stages. More details can be found in a dedicated application note to be downloaded from our client zone. Version 3 is mechanically, electrically and functionally completely backwards compatible with version 2. This means that no hardware and/or firmware changes are needed in a camera system to support both versions.

Version 2 will continue to be available for ordering to support existing camera designs. Both versions can be distinguished with a separate part number (see ordering table below for more details).
