International. Sony announced the commercialization of a new sensor CMOS image of 2,45 effective megapixels for automatic cameras. This image sensor is equipped with an LED flicker mitigation function (LFM) that reduces flicker when firing LED signals and traffic signals, as well as the High Dynamic Range (HDR) function capable of firing 120 dB2 wide dynamic range.

The IMX390CQV is the first in the industry that can simultaneously mitigate the flicker and capture of the LED in HDR, a capability that is made possible by Sony's pixel structure and exposure method. It also offers high sensitivity performance capable of producing high-quality color images even in light conditions of just 0.1 lux, which is equivalent to moonlight.

In recent years, LEDs have been widely adopted for traffic signs and signals, and also for automotive components such as headlights and brake lights. Another trend has been the need for automatic cameras to capture high quality images with a wide dynamic range, even in situations of dramatic contrast, such as entering or leaving tunnels during the day.

This image sensor uses the LFM and HDR functions simultaneously to deal with this type of situation, providing more accurate recognition in the various real-world traffic environments that drivers encounter.

Sony will begin sending samples in May of 2017.
