SmartSens Announces 1/2.7-Inch 8MP CMOS Image Sensor to Provide 4K Video Performance for Security Cameras


SmartSens today announced the SC830AI, an 8MP CMOS image sensor with a 1.5µm pixel size and a 1/2.7” optical format to enable 4K video performance for security camera applications.

The SC830AI is the latest addition to SmartSens’ Advanced Imaging (AI) Series, using performance upgrade technology SmartClarity®-2. Benefited from a BSI pixel structure and PixGain technology, the SC830AI brings a 30 percent improvement in FWC compared to the previous generation and a 1.4dB enhancement in Max SNR. The sensor also features reduced crosstalk which produces boosted Chroma. Furthermore, the SC830AI delivers 100dB dynamic range in Staggered HDR mode. Additionally, enhanced high temperature performance is built into the SC830AI to reduce dark current and white pixel by 30% and 27% respectively in comparison with its predecessor. Moreover, the SC830AI leverages SmartSens’ SFCPixel® technology and NIR+ technology, offering full-color night vision.

The SC830AI is currently available for sampling and expected to achieve mass production in Q4 of 2021.
