South Korean sensor provider Jinoid have chosen Newsight’s CMOS image sensors for advanced smart vision and inspection sensor systems. Newsight’s NSI3000 line sensor, and NSI1000 area sensor have already successfully passed Jinoid’s evaluation, and the first batch of a thousand chips has been provided and assembled. The two companies intend to expand the collaboration.
Newsight’s sensor chips are being integrated into Jinoid’s main smart sensor families:
• The ZSC Series, a standalone sensing system for part inspection,
• The ZORP Series, which fits high speed pinhole inspection systems and can make good use of Newsight’s ultra-high frame rate.
• The ZPE Series, a smart sensor for Android-based applications using Newsight’s sensors’ flexible configuration features.
Newsight recently released the NSI1000 chip. With 32 lines of 1,024 global shutter pixels, it is a multi-mode sensor capable of supporting Newsight’s “eTOF”(enhanced time-of-flight). It works in multi-triangulation mode, which provides 32 highly accurate depth points concurrently, in-pixel accumulation, and multi-set configuration, which can change the chip’s functionality from a regular camera to a depth camera, frame-by-frame. Newsight will hold a webinar this month to present the unique features of their sensor chips.
Jinoid are a specialised sensor company, a Korean partner of Japan’s Takenaka (Takex) sensor group, specialising in sensors for over 50 years. Since 2006, Jinoid have taken a leading role in the FA sensor field. Among Jinoid’s top customers are Samsung, LG Display, BOE, and CSOT.
Newsight Imaging develop advanced CMOS Image sensor chips for 3D machine vision and spectral analysis. The company have 14 US and EU patents, were named “Cool Vendor” in the Nobel sensors category by Gartner, and received 3 grants by the Israeli Innovation Authority.
