Diagonal 21.77 mm (Type 4/3) CMOS Image Sensor with Square Pixel for Color Cameras

Ver.0.1 Tentative

Description
The IMX472-AAJK is a diagonal 21.77 mm (Type 4/3) CMOS active pixel type image sensor with a square pixel array and 21.46 M effective pixels. This sensor incorporates maximum 27 dB PGA circuit and 12 bits A/D converter. 12 bits digital output makes it possible to readout the signals of 20.89 M active pixels at high-speed of 120 frame/s in still picture mode.

In addition, this product is designed for use in consumer use digital still camera. When using this for another application, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation does not guarantee the quality and reliability of product. Therefore, don’t use this for applications other than consumer use digital still camera. In addition, individual specification change cannot be supported because this is a standard product. Consult your Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation sales representative if you have any questions.
