CMOSIS sensor

CMOSIS, the sensor company that supplied Leica their M Typ 240 sensors, has announced a new 48 megapixel CMOS full frame image sensor. 

The sensor is capable of supporting 8k image resolution at 30 frames per second, and is more than twice the resolution of its previous generation sensor.

It's a medium format sensor with 7920x6002 4.6 micron sized pixels. It uses a patented 8-transistor pixel architecture to offer low noise and better electronic shutter efficiency.

"The introduction of the 48Mpixel CMV50000 gives camera manufacturers the opportunity to enjoy the design and operating advantages of a CMOS image sensor while gaining the ultra-high resolution, which has previously only been available through the use of CCD sensors”, said Wim Wuyts, Marketing Manager for image sensors at ams.

The CMV50000’s advanced noise-reduction features such as black level clamping combined with its high optical dynamic range, results in high picture quality at full operation speed without the need for complex analog output matching required for multi-tap CCD image sensors and therefore also decreases the camera development time significantly."

The sensor is set to be available for sampling by the end of 2016.
