Sony will begin sampling a new 2.45 effective megapixel CMOS image sensor for automotive cameras, the IMX390CQV type 1/2.7.
This image sensor is equipped with an LED flicker mitigation function that reduces flickering when shooting LED signs and traffic signals, as well as an HDR function capable of 120dB wide dynamic range shooting. The IMX390CQV is the first to simultaneously mitigate LED flicker and shoot in HDR, a capability made possible by Sony's original pixel structure and exposure method. It also offers high-sensitivity performance capable of producing high-quality color images even in light conditions as low as 0.1 lux, which is equivalent to moonlight.
The IMX390CQV is planned to meet the requirements of the AEC-Q100 Grade 2 automotive electronic component reliability tests this fiscal year. Moreover, with this new product, Sony also introduced a development process that complies with ISO26262 automobile functional safety standards, aiming to achieve a high level of design quality for an automotive product. The new sensor also meets the functional safety requirement level ASIL C.
