JAI chooses AnaFocus LS4k CMOS SoC image sensor for new generation 3CMOS line scan camera

JAI Ltd, a leading provider of high-performance camera systems, has chosen AnaFocus’ CMOS System-on-Chip linear image sensor device for new generation line scan camera based on 3CMOS technology, used worldwide in machine vision applications.

“Thanks to the dedicated support of AnaFocus, JAI succeeded in developing the new 4096 pixels linear image sensor based camera, which is achieved the highest quality. We also believe that the superior CMOS designing technology that AnaFocus has, enables us to supply the high quality images. We are very happy with this result.”, said Mr. Takami Hasegawa, Chief Technology Officer of JAI Ltd.

“We are really proud that leading camera manufacturer JAI chose ANAFOCUS technology for the development of this new high-performance 3CMOS line-scan camera. Our cooperation with JAI team in Japan has been very positive and fluent all over the project. Moreover we are really delighted with the great functionality and high-performance achieved by the new 3CMOS line-scan camera” said Rafael Romay, General Manager of AnaFocus.

AnaFocus LS4k is a CMOS SoC image sensor optimized for line-scan cameras willing to benefit from functionality-integration and flexibility of CMOS SoC technology without compromising image quality. LS4k consists of a single-chip solution combining high-responsivity low-noise advanced photodiodes, high-accuracy and high-speed analog-to-digital conversion, and sophisticated image-processor for real-time optical correction. The LS4k CMOS SoC includes flexible control allowing easy re-configuration of image size, sub-sampling, binning, exposure time, gain, offset, and other image processing features via serial port.
