The new naneyem micro camera module supports applications such as home robots, smart appliances and smart toys.

AMS Ag today announced the pre launch of naneyem, an integrated micro camera module (MCM), which has a very small package size of only 1mm2.

With compact design and simple interface, naneyem is easy to integrate into the design of industrial and consumer electronics applications with limited space, providing new embedded visual functions for products such as smart toys and household appliances.

Naneyem provides 100k pixel high-resolution 10 bit digital image and adopts single ended interface mode (seim). Like the standard serial peripheral interface (SPI), the seim channel can be easily used in any host processor without LVDS deserialization, providing a cost optimized solution. Maximum frame rate supported by seim interface: 58fps when clock is 75MHz.

Naneyem adopts a custom multi-element lens, which greatly improves the effective resolution of the sensor and reduces distortion compared with the competitive sensor using a single element lens. The MTF (modulation transfer function) of four corners is 50%, the distortion rate is 15%, and the color difference is 1px.

Seim’s slave configuration supports using the host application processor to control the frame rate, which can be as low as 1fps or lower. The synchronization of two or more cameras can be easily realized by providing a clock in the application processor. This function is very useful in applications such as human eye tracking or stereo vision.

Naneyem also provides a redundancy mode, which can reduce application power consumption (such as occupancy monitoring). In this mode, only a very low frame rate is required.

Ames semiconductor will be based on arm ® The kernel standard processor provides the reference design of image acquisition and image processing, so as to reduce the development difficulty of customers and speed up the time to market.

Tom walscap, marketing director of CMOS image sensor division of Ames semiconductor, said: “Some designers want to add high-resolution video functions to architectures with limited space, but so far, it has been limited by the size of industrial image sensors on the market. The launch of naneyem opens up a new possibility to add camera functions in the smallest space. The product adopts the form of easy-to-use digital output module, so that designers can easily and quickly add camera functions.”

Naneyem image sensor samples will be available in the second quarter of 2019.
