After few months of presentations at different conferences and exhibitions, STMicroelectronics has officially unveiled two new automotive global shutter image sensors, the VG5661 and VG5761, aimed to driver monitoring.

ST’s VG5661 and VG5761 are 1.6MP and 2.3MP automotive global shutter sensors. ST has created a unique automotive global shutter pixel with two memory cells while keeping a small pixel size of 3.2μm. The two memory zones allow double-image storage, enabling linear HDR up to 98dB or background removal without lag effects and with no need for additional processing by the host system. This offloads the host processor and reduces instances of correction artefacts. In addition, HDR and high MTF in NIR further minimizes interference from natural light sources.

The VG5661 and VG5761 are supplied in standard BGA packages, or as bare die for direct integration in automotive OEM systems produced in high volumes. They are qualified to AEC-Q100 grade 2 and include complex safety-integrity features as required for an ASIL-B camera system in accordance with the automotive safety standard ISO 26262.
