ON Semiconductor has introduced the industry’s first 1/1.7-inch 2.1 megapixel complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor, featuring ON Semiconductor’s newly developed 4.2µm back side illuminated (BSI) pixels.

The AR0221 offers exceptional 3-exposure line-interleaved High Dynamic Range (HDR) with a sensor resolution of 1936H x 1096V, supporting frame rates of 1080p at 30 fps and an outstanding Signal-Noise Ratio (SNR) across visible and near-infrared wavelengths. Its 16:9 ratio with vivid colours and high contrast make it ideal for demanding industrial applications.
Gianluca Colli, vice president and general manager, Consumer Solution Division of Image Sensor Group at ON Semiconductor said: “The AR0221 represents the industry’s best CMOS image sensor in this class, thanks to its outstanding low light sensitivity and SNR performance. By including features like windowing, auto black level correction and an onboard temperature sensor, ON Semiconductor has produced an image sensor that will enable a new generation of security and surveillance cameras.”
The sensor offers dual data interfaces in the form of 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 and high-speed serial pixel interface scalable low voltage signalling (HiSPi SLVS). Designed to meet industrial-grade specifications, the AR0221 can operate in harsh outdoor environments where operating temperatures can range between -30°C and +85°C. Packaged in a durable, reliable and robust interstitial ball grid array (IBGA) package with anti-reflection coating on its cover glass, the AR0221 is programmable through a simple two-wire serial interface.
