Gpixel announces a high-speed global shutter sensor, GSPRINT4510, a new member of GSPRINT series targeting high speed applications.

GSPRINT4510 is a 10MP 4/3” (22.9mm) sensor based on 4.5 µm charge domain global shutter pixel. It has more than 30 ke- full well and less than 3 e- rms read noise. Using an advanced 65 nm CIS process with light pipe technology, the sensor achieves >65% QE and more than 1/40,000 shutter efficiency. With on-chip charge binning, full well capacity can be further increased and frame rate is almost quadrupled.

GSPRINT4510 will be offered in two variants to support in the most optimal way different end-use use cases. One version is dedicated to 3D laser profiling and supports 144 pairs sub-LVDS channels running at 1.2Gbps each, which delivers 2000 fps in 8-bit operation at 2048 rows and >3500 fps with an ROI of 1024 rows in combination with several HDR modes. Incorporating a thinner glass lid to reduce stray light reflection, the option to have no micro lenses, and either a sealed or removable glass lid makes GSPRINT4510 a good solution for 3D laser scanning applications.

For other applications including high-speed industrial inspection, life science imaging and 4K video applications, the sensor is offered in monochrome, color and achieve up to 500 fps @ 12-bit, 1008 fps @ 10-bit and 1928 fps @ 8-bit with full resolution. On-chip 2×2 charge binning can boost frame rates more than x3 with a full well charge increase to 120 ke-. Flexible output channel multiplex modes make it possible to reduce frame and data rate to make it compatible with all available camera interface options. This version of the sensor incorporates micro lenses and a sealed glass lid making GSPRINT4510 a good choice for many applications such as 4/3”(MFT) format global shutter cameras in slow motion capture or drone-mounted videography.

Both versions of GSPRINT4510 are packaged in a 454-pin uPGA ceramic package which is pin-compatible with GSPRINT4521. GSPRINT4510 monochrome engineering samples can be ordered today for delivery in October 2021.
