Exmor R and Exmor RS camera modules

Exmor was a sensor technology created by Sony to reduce noise and enhance image quality. Compared to Sony's earlier sensor series, Exmor's architecture emphasizes digitizing pixel data during the first phases of image data transport. In addition, it has a front-illuminated structure that performs parallel two-step noise reduction with the on-chip analog/digital signal conversion on each column of the CMOS image sensor.

The Exmor R series was the next generation of sensors from Sony that significantly enhanced sensitivity. These sensors were more suitable for low-light applications. However, the Exmor RS - which was a further upgrade from Exmor R - series of sensors was introduced to overcome the challenge of reduced NIR sensitivity of its previous generations. With this addition, Sony created a solid portfolio of sensors for no light and night vision applications.

e-con Systems™ offers a wide range of Sony Exmor R and Exmor RS cameras based on sensors like IMX290, IMX298, IMX327, IMX412, IMX415, IMX462, and IMX485. Our Sony camera modules are ideal for various markets, including industrial, retail, agricultural, smart cities, and the medical sector.

STARVIS camera modules

ESTARVIS is a series of sensors in the Exmor R family that offers a sensitivity of 2000 mV/μm2 or more. It is powered by the back-illuminated pixel technology, developed for CMOS image sensors - ensuring excellent image quality in low light conditions.

e-con Systems' portfolio of Sony STARVIS cameras includes solutions housing sensors like IMX290, IMX327, IMX462, IMX415, IMX485, and IMX412. These camera solutions come with features spanning high resolution, excellent low light performance, high NIR sensitivity, etc. These well-engineered camera solutions are suitable for applications including autonomous mobile robots, smart traffic management, smart surveillance, point of care devices, life science equipment, etc.
