  • New Product – Mouser Now Shipping ams OSRAM Mira220 Global Shutter Image Sensors for Machine Vision Applications

Mouser is now shipping the Mira220 global shutter sensors from ams OSRAM. These 2.2-megapixel global shutter image sensors support on-chip operations like external triggering, windowing, and both horizontal and vertical mirroring with an effective resolution of 1600 (H) x 1400 (V) at a maximum frame rate of 90 fps at 12-bit depth. The advanced back-side illumination (BSI) technology of the product stacks the sensor layer on top of the digital/readout layer. This design results in a chip-scale package with a footprint of just 5.3 mm × 5.3 mm, giving manufacturers greater freedom to optimise the design of space-constrained. These sensors feature very low power consumption, with only 4 mW required in sleep mode, 40 mW in idle mode, and 350 mW at full resolution with 90 fps. By providing low system power consumption, the Mira220 enables wearable and portable device manufacturers to save space by specifying a smaller battery or extending run-time between charges. These sensors give design engineers 2D and 3D solutions for industrial machine vision applications like mobile facial authentication, smart home appliances, QR readers, AR/VR, drones, structured light vision and more.

  • New Products – Mouser Now Stocking Infineon’s XENSIV Connected Sensor Kits, Offering Sensor Platform for IoT Device Development

Mouser is now stocking the XENSIV™ KIT CSK PASCO2 and XENSIV KIT CSK BGT60TR13C connected sensor kits (CSK) from Infineon Technologies AG. Combining sensors, microcontrollers and secure connectivity for a prototype can become a resource-intensive process. The CSK platform solves this issue by combing XENSIV sensors with power-efficient, high-performance processing based on an Infineon PSoC™ 6 microcontroller. An OPTIGA™ Trust M security controller enables secure connectivity. The modular board design of the connected sensor kits is compatible with the Adafruit Feather form factor, allowing the user to prototype solutions for various sensor use cases, for example, battery-powered smart home applications. The CSK platform enables the creation of new prototype ideas based on Infineon sensors, including radar, environmental sensors and others.
