Create 960H World with Effio System

Author:Sony Date:7/2/2013 2:56:58 AM

"Effio" is a trademark of Sony Corporation. The"Effio" is a signal processor chip from Sony employing processing modes that deliver high resolution, high S/N ratio and excellent color reproduction.

Horizontal (effective) resolution: 960 pixels (960H CCD image sensor)
High sensitivity and high saturation signal

"EXview HAD CCD II" is a trademark of Sony Corporation. "EXview HAD CCD II" is a CCD image sensor that realizes sensitivity (typical) of 1000 mV or more per 1 μm2 (Color: F5.6/BW: F8 in 1 s accumulation equivalent) and improves light efficiency by including near infrared light region as a basic structure of Sony's "EXview HAD CCD".

Effio-E" System CXD4127GG, CXD4816GG
The "Effio-E" System is an entry-level model camera system that is designed for easy introduction into end products from design through mass production and that inherits the basic picture quality characteristics that are features of the "Effio" Series, that is, high sensitivity, high resolution, and excellent color reproduction. The "Effio-E" System has a simple, 2-chip structure consisting of an analog IC (AFE: CXD4816GG) and a signal-processing IC (DSP: CXD4127GG) and supports a wide range of CCD image sensors, including 510H, 760H, and 960H CCD image sensors. (See figure 1.) These devices are provided in compact LFBGA packages and, due to the adoption of a new process technology generation, achieve a power consumption of 1/2 that of current systems. Thus the "Effio-E" System can contribute to miniaturization and reduced power consumption in camera products.

Extensive Functionality and High Picture Quality
Even though the "Effio-E" System is an entry-level model camera system, it includes not only a noise reduction function, but it also provides an ATR (adaptive tone reproduction) function (photograph 1) that improves contrast in bright/dark areas and a HLC (highlight compensation) function that suppresses strong headlights at night and improves visibility to provide clear images with superb picture quality.
In addition to the existing static method for white pixel detection and compensation, it also includes for the first time a dynamic method that can handle secondary white pixels. Furthermore, when combined with the ICX672AKA/ICX673AKA 960H CCD image sensors, it can provide the high horizontal resolution of 650 TV lines or higher.

Built-in OSD Functions
The "Effio-E" System includes OSD (on-screen display) functions that allow camera settings to be made using the display. This function provides preset menus in eight languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, and Japanese) and allows camera settings to be made easily without using an external microcontroller.

The newly-developed ICX672AKA/ICX673AKA 960H CCD image sensors are "EXview HAD CCD II" devices. The "EXview HAD CCD II" technology is a further evolved version of the "EXview HAD CCD" in which "Super HAD CCD II"*1 technology has been incorporated.
Compared to the current ICX638BKA/ICX639BKA, these new devices increase the number of horizontal pixels and achieve a high saturation signal level and high sensitivity that extends into the near infrared.
