CCDs Are Gone: Migrate to CMOS Sensors Now!

Published on June 25, 2018

In 2015, Sony discontinued all CCD sensors stating that the new Pregius Global Shutter CMOS sensors offer significantly better sensor technology in terms of image quality, sensitivity and performance.

New CMOS Cameras The Sony CCD sensors are global shutter sensors with resolutions between 0.3 MP and 12 MP.

Sony now offers a Pregius global shutter CMOS sensor for each individual CCD sensor with better features and performance at lower costs.

The Imaging Source offers cameras with Pregius sensors from 0.4 MP to 12 MP with GigE, USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 (gen. 1) interface.

Pregius Sensor Resolution MP Sensor Format Pixel Size FPS
IMX287 728×544 0.4 MP 1/2.9 inch 6.9 µm 539
IMX273 1456×1088 1.6 MP 1/2.9 inch 3.45 µm 238
IMX252 2048×1536 3.2 MP 1/1.8 inch 3.45 µm 120
IMX265 2048×1536 3.2 MP 1/1.8 inch 3.45 µm 60
IMX250 2448×2048 5.1 MP 2/3 inch 3.45 µm 75
IMX264 2448×2048 5.1 MP 2/3 inch 3.45 µm 38
IMX255 4096×2160 8.9 MP 1 inch 3.45 µm 42
IMX267 4096×2160 8.9 MP 1 inch 3.45 µm 35
IMX253 4096×3000 12.3 MP 1.1 inch 3.45 µm 30
IMX304 4096×3000 12.3 MP 1.1 inch 3.45 µm 26

We strongly recommend that you begin the migration from CCD sensors to CMOS now. Pixel size and sensor format are important factors when transitioning to CMOS sensors and beginning the process now allows for testing of the new CMOS cameras in your application.
