Nikkei publishes a 4-page article on Sony 1/1.7-inch IMX324 ADAS sensor. Sony says "We will sell the product with intent to achieve 100% share (of the market for image sensors designed for sensing cameras to be attached to the front side of vehicle)."

The main points are:

  • Its power consumption at full 7.42MP resolution 40fps is 500-600mW, which is the industry's smallest, according to Sony.
  • The new sensor has the highest sensitivity in the industry and is the industry's first automotive image sensor that features security functions, Sony said.
  • Sony started to contact Mobileye from an early stage of the development of the new product and responded to many demands of Mobileye.
  • However, the new product was developed not only for Mobileye. The specifications required by Mobileye are "commonly-required specifications," Sony said.
  • Sony is to ship samples in November 2017 and to start volume production in June 2018.
  • Sony uses a laminated stacked design, the first laminated-type automotive image sensor, the company said. "We applied a process that is two or three generations more advanced that the processes used for existing automotive image sensor products."
  • Sony improved the sensitivity by using an RCCC CFA. Image recognition is possible with Mobileye's without using all of the RGB colors.
