    ASI178MM Special Features

    Sony IMX178 CMOS Sensor 

    • High-resolution coupled with optimal dynamic range results in the Sony IMX178 back-illuminated CMOS image sensor's high sensitivity.
    • This sensor's sensitivity of 2000 mV or more per 1 um yields optimal picture quality in the visible and near-infrared light regions.
    • 14-bit ADC significantly reduces quantization noise and suppresses dark random noise resulting in high dynamic range and clear image quality.

    Versatile Design

    • USB 3.0 Port:Can provide 5 GB bandwidth to let ASI178 run at 30 fps (14-bit, normal mode) or 60 fps (10-bit, high-speed mode) at full resolution (6.4 megapixels).
