HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 30 August 2018
e2v, a Teledyne Technologies company and global innovator of imaging solutions, announces Snappy 2 megapixel, a new CMOS
image sensor designed for barcode reading and other 2D scanning applications.
The sensor uniquely combines full HD resolution, a 2.8μm low-noise global
shutter and advanced features for fast and economic decoding, all within a
small optical format.
From pixel performance, to
integrated real-time features, every aspect of the Snappy sensor has been
optimised to enable fast and accurate scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes. This enables
scanning platforms to offer enhanced productivity and throughput in logistics,
sorting, retail POS, and many other associated verticals. Snappy's features are
also useful in a number of other applications including drones/UAVs, embedded
imaging, IoT edge devices, intelligent surveillance cameras and augmented reality/virtual
Gareth Powell, Marketing
Manager at Teledyne e2v, said, "Snappy 2MP is the first in a range of
innovative sensors specifically aimed at barcode reading and is designed to
mobile or fixed readers and automatic identification cameras
with better than ever performance. The new sensors feature our patented
Fast-Exposure mode, which ensures that the first image frame is correctly
exposed to enable the fastest possible identification and decoding by the image
processing system, even in diverse or rapidly changing light conditions."
Snappy 2MP is a member of an
expanding family of sensors with identical software and hardware requirements,
bringing further cost savings by enabling a complete range of scanners/cameras
at different resolutions from a single system design effort.
- Small, low noise global shutter CMOS pixel
(2.8μm x 2.8μm)
- Small 1/3 inch optical format at full HD
- Excellent signal to noise ratio at low light,
saving on system illuminations costs
- HDR modes for wide dynamic scenes
- Single and multi ROI modes for tracking
simultaneous image regions
Samples and demo kits are now available; if you want to have a close up
on our Snappy, please visit our booth 6C46 & 6C47 at 20th CIOE China
International Optoelectronic Expo, on September 5 til 8, at Shenzhen Convention
& Exhibition Centre, China.
