OSAKA, Japan - Saturday, February 6th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Panasonic Corporation today announced that it has developed a new highly functional global shutter technology for a CMOS image sensor using organic photoconductive film (OPF)*1. This technology enables the capture of a high speed moving object in up to 10 times brighter*2scenes in global shutter mode. With the OPF CMOS image sensor, the charge-storage function and photoelectric-conversion function can be set independently. By utilizing this unique feature of the OPF CMOS image sensor, this technology solves the degradation of saturation signal in a conventional image sensor with global shutter function. Motion direction can be detected from an acquired object’s signal level in one picture through fine control of shutter sensitivity by changing applied voltage to OPF, which cannot be realized by conventional CMOS image sensors.

This newly developed highly functional global shutter technol ... Read more »
