High performance 2nd generation Pregius CMOS sensors from Sony are proving very popular with many industrial camera manufacturers. STEMMER IMAGING can offer GigE Vision cameras from Allied Vision, JAI and Teledyne DALSA featuring the latest IMX264 5-megapixel and IMX265 3.2-megapixel sensors.
Two earthquakes that took place in the Kyushu Region, Japan, on the 14th and 16th of April 2016 have affected Sony’s CMOS sensor production lines at their Kumamoto Technology Center. The JAI camera manufacturing plant in Japan is also located close to the epicentre, but was hardly affected and has led to no personal injuries.
Sony recently announced its intention to close its 200 mm CCD wafer line in Kagoshima and to stop the manufacture of the majority of Sony’s industrial CCD sensors. Mark Williamson, Director – Corporate Market Development of STEMMER IMAGING, explains how machine vision users and STEMMER IMAGING customers are affected by this decision.
