CMOS Sensor Family

CMOS Sensor Family

For several decades Canon, has been developing and manufacturing advanced sensors with state-of-the-art technologies for exclusive use in Canon products. The sensors are a driving force behind many successful products, from consumer products up to high-end business and industrial solutions.

The 3U5MGXS 5 Megapixel Global Shutter CMOS Sensor is equipped with a global shutter that exposes all of the sensors’ pixels at the same time. This solid-state imaging sensor has dimensions of 2/3 inches, has a square pixel arrangement, and 5.33 million effective pixels (2592 x 2056). The sensor's global electronic shutter function contols the charge accumulation time and an all pixel progressive reading of 120 fps. This CMOS sensor family is available in monochrome (3U5MGXSMAA), color (3U5MGXSCAA) and a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (3U5MGXSIBA).

Ideal 3U5MGXS applications include:

  • Automotive parts inspection
  • Automotive metrology
  • Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)
  • High speed video broadcasting
  • Microscopy
  • High resolution network cameras
  • Wide FOV cameras
  • 720 – 60fps cameras
  • Dome cameras with electronic pan, tile, and zoom
  • Hybrid video cameras with high resolution stills
  • Detailed feature extraction for smart cameras
  • 3D scanners for prototyping and quality assurance
  • Robotic vision

  • Biometrics
  • Pharmaceutical and life science microscopy
  • Analysis of color prints

The 35MMFHDXS_A 2 Megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS Sensor features features ultra-high sensitivity with a 2.76 megapixel resolution. The 19 µm pixels minimize noise and dark current and allow control over readout position and frame rate, making the 35MMFHDXS_A sensors unique for low light imaging. These CMOS sensors are available in monochrome (35MMFHDXSMA) and color (35MMFHDXSCA).

Ideal 35MMFHDXS_A applications include:

  • Night Vision
  • Surveillance
  • “Big Science” telescopy
  • Neuroscience
  • Fluorescence imaging/microscopy
  • Biomedical imaging
  • Microscopy
  • Machine vision
  • Surveillance and security

The 120MXS 120 Megapixel CMOS Sensor delivers ultra-high 120 MP resolution in a compact design. The sensor’s pixel-level innovations allow for faster readout speeds with lower noise ratios at 9.4 fps or higher when reducing the amount of readout lines. This CMOS sensor is available in monochrome (120MXSM), color (120MXSC), and with a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (120MXSI).

Ideal 120MXS applications include:

  • 3D metrology
  • Aeronautic imaging
  • Digital archives
  • Document scanning
  • Flat panel display inspection
  • Intelligent traffic systems
  • Large area surveillance
  • Machine vision
  • Mapping
  • Medical imaging
  • Packaging and inspection
  • Reconnaissance
  • Scientific research
  • Security
