Mira050 is a compact 0.5 MP Near IR enhanced global shutter image sensor designed for 2D and 3D consumer and industrial machine vision applications. The sensor has a small 2.79 µm pixel size with high sensitivity made possible by a state of the art BSI technology. The sensor has a MIPI CSI-2 interface to allow easy interfacing with a plethora of processors and FPGAs. Due to its small size, configurability and high sensitivity both in visual as well as NIR, the Mira050 is well suited for 2D and 3D applications, which include Active Stereo Vision, Structured Light Vision and AR/VR. High sensitivity in NIR enables increased measurement range and allows overall system power consumption optimization which is key for battery powered consumer and industrial applications.
