The Sony IMX296 is a global shutter CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 1.6 megapixels and a pixel size of 3.4µm x 3.4µm. A global shutter sensor captures an entire image at once, unlike a rolling shutter sensor that scans an image line by line. This means that global shutter sensors can avoid distortion and motion blur when capturing fast-moving objects.
The Sony IMX296 sensor is suitable for various industrial and machine vision applications, such as robotics, inspection, surveillance, and high-speed imaging. It can also be used with different types of lenses, such as C/CS-mount lenses, and can be integrated with Arducam camera module for embedded system/platforms using.
