Teledyne e2v, a Teledyne Technologies company, and TowerJazz have announced that Teledyne e2v’s Emerald 67M image sensor, designed for ultra-high resolution electronics inspection, high-end surveillance and microscopy is now available.
The sensor is a member of Teledyne e2v’s Emerald family and uses TowerJazz’s smallest in the world 2.5µm low-noise global shutter pixel, on TowerJazz’s 65nm platform, in its Uozu, 300mm Japanese manufacturing facility. The pixel is integrated with a unique light pipe technology, offering good angular response, more than 80dB shutter efficiency, in a significantly small size, and extremely low noise (one electron). This unique pixel architecture provides cutting edge performance that enables improved manufacturing yields, through detection of smaller defects.
The Emerald family of sensors, solely manufactured by TowerJazz, provides customers with multiple features and are all suitable for high-speed interface systems including 10GigE, CoaXPress, Camera Link, and Camera Link HS. Special features include HDR modes with up to 120dB dynamic range and also a unique Region Of Interest (ROI) mode which allows multiple ROI to be captured under different exposure conditions, further improving the dynamic range of an image.
Emerald 67M has a square shape with 8k resolution per side, enabling 95% utilization of the image area for the next generation of display manufacturing, gen 10.5. The high-resolution optimizes vision system movements in large product inspection, reducing system complexity and removing instabilities. It is available in two different speed grades (ultra-high speed, 60fps and high speed, 30fps).
