Teledyne e2v introduces industry’s smallest 2- and 1.5-megapixel CMOS sensors featuring low-noise global shutter pixels

Grenoble, France, September 14, 2021 – Teledyne Technologies [NYSE:TDY] Teledyne e2v, a subsidiary of the group, launched the Topaz series of CMOS industrial sensors with 2 million and 1.5 million resolutions. Available in 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 800 pixel formats, the new sensors use state-of-the-art low-noise, global shutter pixel technology to provide a robust solution for a variety of applications as well as a streamlined mobile design.

The Topaz sensor is housed in a 4.45 mm wide CSP package, where the optical center of the sensor perfectly coincides with the mechanical center of the package, resulting in a slim design for the camera. This feature makes it perfect for small OEM QR code engine designs, mobile terminals and SLEDs, IoT, contactless authentication systems, wearables, drones and robots. Small 2.5µm global shutter pixel applies intra-pixel correlated double sampling (CDS) and advanced dual light guides to ensure better signal-to-noise ratio and low crosstalk in low light conditions, so 1/3 inch can be achieved optical format.

Gareth Powell, Marketing Manager for CMOS Sensors at Teledyne e2v, said: “Modern logistics, retail and manufacturing applications all place higher demands on throughput, productivity and working range. The new Topaz sensor was developed based on this demand. Yes, it is very cost-effective and suitable for large-scale applications. It also has a small form factor and is the best choice for driving the world’s smallest QR code OEM engine and the thinnest mobile platform.”
