Framos reports that Sony launches the new polarizer sensors IMX264MZR (monochrome) and IMX264MYR (color). These 5MP sensors have a 2/3-type format and a pixel size of 3.45 µm. It reaches frame rates up to 35.7 fps at 12-bit (only) and has one ROI window. The new CMOS Pregius sensors are equipped with a four-directional polarization square pixel array which can filter light from all four direction in a single capture.

Sibel Yorulmaz-Cokugur, Sensor Expert at FRAMOS, says: “Polarsens technology has changed the industry. The on-chip polarization brings significantly higher quality analysis and simplified application design“.

Evaluation samples of Sony’s IMX264MZR and IMX264MYR will be available from October 23rd 2020, mass production starts in February 2021.
