Munich, March 3, 2022 – FRAMOS, the global leading supplier of imaging components, extended its Sensor Module Ecosystem with the FSM-IMX678. This new module has the IMX678 CMOS image sensor from Sony Semiconductor Solutions and can be used for testing and validation in solutions designed for security and Smart City, low-light applications in industry, AGV, and logistics drones. FSM-IMX678 will be a good choice for projects in medical industry, microscopy, Augmented / Virtual Reality.

4K Sensor Running At 60 fps

The 8.4 Megapixel image sensor with its 2.0 µm pixel size is built on Sony’s  STARVIS 2™ technology. The IMX678 offers more improved high dynamic range, with better low light and NIR performance than its predecessor, the IMX334. The new 1/1.8″ sensor’s optical format is compatible with popular M12/S-mount lenses and delivers smooth 4K/60 FPS via its MIPI CSI-2 / D-PHY interface.

Sibel Yorulmaz-Cokugur, sensor expert at FRAMOS, summarizes the benefits of the new Sensor Module: “Sony’s IMX678 sensor enhances our Sensor Module Ecosystem with its 4K resolution, higher sensitivity and low-light performance. It leverages the STARVIS technology to its full potential so that points of interest can be seen even in dark environments for increased analysis and detection.”
