IMX636 HD Sensor

Sony Semiconductor Solutions (“Sony”) and PROPHESEE collaborated to produce SONY IMX636 (HD), a stacked event based vision sensor developed around 4.86um contrast detection pixels.

This Event-based vision sensors feature high-speed/low-latency response, wide dynamic range operation, focal-plane data compression and low power consumption.

A high level of programmability is guaranteed via a four-wire serial peripheral interface. It allows the user to define region of interest and program various functions.

The vision sensor data output is fully digital and consists of 16-wire parallel data bus with an external clock and data valid flag. This interface can easily be connected to an external parallel to LVDS serializer IC.
