The new sensor, employing Toshiba’s original HDR (High Dynamic Range) function, is optimized to capture clear images even in high contrast light conditions without blown-out highlights. The sensor also allows videos to be shot at 60fps in full resolution and realizes natural, smooth images. The sensor is offered in a small PBGA (plastic Ball Grid Array) package.
The sensor meets the requirements for high resolution, high-speed frame rate and high fidelity images for industrial use, and is suitable for such applications as security and surveillance cameras, monitor cameras and driving recorders.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range) which gives 108dB of dynamic range (per Toshiba calculation method)
- Video capture of Full HD at 60fps which reproduces smooth and natural moving images.
- PBGA (Plastic Ball Grid Array) which contributes to build smaller camera modules
