Key Takeaways

  • The stacked event-based vision sensor is the industry’s smallest*¹ 4.86μm pixel size and the highest*¹ 124dB (or more) HDR performance.

  • This joint development combines technical features of Sony’s stacked CMOS image sensor, resulting in small pixel size and excellent low light performance that are achieved by the use of Cu-Cu connection*², with Prophesee’s MetavisionⓇ Event-based vision sensing technologies leading to fast pixel response, high temporal resolution and high throughput data readout.

  • The newly developed sensor is suitable for various machine vision applications, such as detecting fast moving objects in a wide range of environments and conditions.
