AltaSens Introduces Its First-High Definition WDR CMOS Image Sensor Fully Qualified to AEC-Q100 Standard for Automotive Uses

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AltaSens, Inc., a leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, is soon offering its first sensor fully meeting all specifications at operational temperatures up to 85 °C.  The high definition CMOS imaging System-on-Chip already meets or exceeds many of the grade-3 qualification requirements of AEC-Q100. 

The AL30205C-85 and its supporting ASIC, the AltaSens Wide Dynamic Range Processing Unit (ALWPU) with dynamically programmable wide dynamic range signal processing, have already been fully qualified to JESD-47 along with Qualification of Integrated Circuits and elements per JESD22, JESD85, and JESD78.  These specifications duplicate many of the requirements of the AEC specification.  The AL30205C-85 and ALWPU also meet all RoHS and REACH environmental requirements.  Sensors and ASICs qualified from zero to 60°C are already in mass production. 

The wide dynamic range chipset, including the AL30205C-85 and the ALWPU, will be fully qualified by early 2014 to AEC-Q100 Grade 3.  AltaSens will globally market the solution to major automotive manufacturers in conjunction with its parent company, JVC KENWOOD Corporation.  The high-performance HD chipset delivers seamless WDR HD video at 1080p30 through 1080p60 with up to 120 dB dynamic range with a minimum of motion artifacts as enabled by its U.S. Pat. No. 8,605,177.  Full AEC-Q100 certification is anticipated in early 2014.

Demonstrations, lead times and competitive pricing are available upon request. Camera modules are also available through multiple distributors.

AltaSens, a wholly owned subsidiary of JVC KENWOOD Corporation (www.jvckenwood.co.jp/en/index.html), was founded in 2004 and has emerged as the pioneer of High Definition and Wide Dynamic Range CMOS imaging technology. AltaSens' products can be found at the heart of many high-end cameras built for a variety of applications, including videoconference, telepresence, surveillance, broadcast, cinematography, medical, and industrial. AltaSens offers a cost-competitive suite of products focused on full 1080p60 HD resolution in 1/3" to 2/3" sensor offerings.  For more about AltaSens High Definition and Wide Dynamic Range products, see www.altasens.com.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
