ams NanEyeM Miniature Camera Modules



NanEyeM is a miniature sized image sensor for vision applications where size is a critical factor. The ability of the camera head to drive a signal through long cables makes this the ideal component for minimal diameter endoscopes. 

With a footprint of a just 1 mm2, it features a 320x320 resolution with a high sensitive 2.4-micron rolling shutter pixel, with large full well capacitance. The sensor has been specially designed for medical endoscopic applications where high SNR is mandatory. The sensor has a high frame rate of about 49 fps to permit SNR enhancement and a smooth, low delay display over a wide range of standard interfaces. Additionally,  the frame rate can be set as low as 9 fps for use of extended exposure time and lower power consumption. 

The sensor includes a 10-bit ADC and a bit serial LVDS data interface. The sensor is able to drive the signal through a cable length of up to 3 m.
