BusinessWire: ON Semi is enhancing patient safety in digital radiography with release of a new CCD image sensor that enables video imaging under reduced x-ray dosage conditions. The KAF-09001 image sensor provides the same critical imaging performance as the KAF-09000 used today for digital radiography image capture, but incorporates an improved output architecture that supports a high sensitivity video mode, facilitating patient positioning while minimizing overall x-ray exposure.
With a resolution of 9MP, the KAF-09001 shares the same 12µm pixels as the existing KAF-09000. The quad-output design incorporated into the new device supports readout speeds up to 20 MHz, providing a 10x increase in full resolution frame rate and up to 10 fps video preview when the device is operated with 3 x 3 binning.
BusinessWire: ON Semi is acquiring and licensing mmWave technology for automotive radar applications developed by IBM’s Haifa research team. The acquisition creates a new Israel design center for ON Semiconductor that reports directly into the automotive solutions division within the Image Sensor Group. The new design center is located in Haifa, Israel. It includes staff, equipment, research facilities and intellectual property.
“The team and its technologies accelerates ON Semiconductor’s strategy to grow our automotive sensing business even faster than the robust growth from increasing camera attach rates,” said Taner Ozcelik, SVP and GM Image Sensor Group. “We look forward to delivering a wider range of sensing products and technology to meet our customers’ needs for next-generation ADAS and fully autonomous driving solutions.”
