The PYTHON xK family of CMOS image sensors provide high resolution with very high bandwidth (up to 80 frame per second readout for 25 megapixel readout) in a pin-compatible family of devices. The high sensitivity 4.5 m pixels support both pipelined and triggered global shutter readout modes. The sensor also supports correlated double sampling (CDS) readout in global shutter mode, reducing noise and increasing dynamic range. The sensor is programmed using a four-wire serial peripheral interface. Black level can be calibrated automatically, or adjusted using a user programmable offset. The sensor also supports readout of up to 32 separate regions of interest (ROI) to increase frame rate. Image data is accessed through 32, 16, 8, or 4 LVDS channels, each running at 720 Mbps, and a separate synchronization channel is provided to facilitate image reconstruction. The PYTHON xK family is packaged in a 355-pin PGA package and is available in a monochrome, Bayer color, and extended near-infrared (NIR) configurations.
