1.2MP ONSemi AR0134/AR0135

Introduction

Arducam now provide low cost high frame 1.2MP global shutter camera module basd on ONSemi (used to be Aptina) AR0134/AR0135 monochrome or color image sensor. The ON Semiconductor AR0134/AR0135 can be operated in its default mode or programmed for frame size, exposure, gain, and other parameters. The default mode output is a full-resolution image at 54 frames per second (fps). It outputs 12-bit raw data, using the parallel output ports. The device may be operated in video (master) mode or in frame trigger mode. FRAME_VALID and LINE_VALID signals are output on dedicated pins, along with a synchronized pixel clock. A dedicated FLASH pin can be programmed to control external LED or flash exposure illumination. The AR0134/AR0135 includes additional features to allow application-specific tuning: windowing, adjustable auto-exposure control, auto black level correction, on-board temperature sensor, and row skip and digital binning modes.
In addition the AR0135 sensor incorporates a new innovative global shutter pixel design, with 10X lower dark current and 4X higher shutter efficiency vs. previous generation products. These improvements allow the sensor to produce clear, low-noise images, in both low-light and bright scenes, and in high temperature environments. These sensor is designed to operate in a wide temperature range (–30°C to +70°C). This performance enables the required eye tracking and gesture detection functionality in next generation automotive in-cabin systems.
