NewSight Imaging carries NSI1000 – 1K CMOS Image Sensor Chip

The NSI1000 imager is the low-cost solution of Newsight Imaging family of machine vision sensors. Based on the NSI3100, it was designed for applications such as Robotics LiDAR and AR/VR, which do not require the full resolution of the NSI3100. The sensor is composed of 256 rows x 1200 tall pixels, which are analog binned to form an ultra-high sensitive matrix. The NSI1000 supports programmable frame rates; Multiline Triangulation; Automatic exposure control to avoid saturation from close objects and enhance sensitivity to distant objects; Automatic peak detection for Triangulation and per-frame configuration to allow on-the-fly reactions to events.

The sensor is manufactured in CMOS technology, with extremely high sensitivity pixels. The high sensitivity allows the sensor to replace more expensive CCD sensors in many applications.
