The VITA 5000 is a 1 inch Quad Super eXtended Graphics Array CMOS image sensor with a pixel array of 2592 by 2048.The high sensitivity 4.8 µm x 4.8 µm pixels support pipelined and triggered global shutter readout modes and can also be operated in a low noise rolling shutter mode. In rolling shutter mode, the sensor supports correlated double sampling readout, reducing noise and increasing the dynamic range.The sensor has on chip programmable gain amplifiers and 10 bit analog and digital converters. The integration time and gain parameters can be reconfigured without any visible image artifact. Optionally the on-chip automatic exposure control loop (AEC) controls these parameters dynamically. The image's black level is either calibrated automatically or can be adjusted by adding a user programmable offset.A high level of programmability using a four wire serial peripheral interface enables the user to read out specific regions of interest. Up to 8 regions can be programmed, achieving even higher frame rates.The image data interface consists of eight LVDS lanes, facilitating frame rates up to 75 frames per second. Each channel runs at 620 Mbps. A separate synchronization channel containing payload information is provided to facilitate the image reconstruction at the receiver end.The VITA 5000 is packaged in a 68-pin LCC package and is available in a monochrome and color version.
