3 pieces of the Lupa3000 (ON Semiconductor product: NOIL1SE3000A) 3.0MP 485fps high speed image sensors actually arrived a while ago. I have been too lazy to post it online. Since the project has been smoothly progressed, it’s high time I released something here! Check out the photos below to see the box-opening.
The Lupa3000 sensor is probably the best sensor available to the public. Other high-end sensors such as the ones installed in Phantom, RED, Sony or Canon are unfortunately only for their own internal use. The Lupa3000 has a global shutter, running at maximum 485fps, delivering data at incredible 13.3Gbs! Its resolution is a little bit of shame at 1696×1710 with 8-bit dynamic range in each color channel. But it is already more than enough for my computer-vision application. Its competitors are probably the CMOSIS 2k x 2k (CMV4000) or 2k x 1k (CMV2000) sensors.
