Image Sensors

OmniVision Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) has released the OV16860, a 16-megapixel PureCel® Plus-S image sensor. A 1.3-micron pixel architecture enables full resolution recording at 45 frames per second. The sensor also supports high dynamic range (HDR), phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and slow-motion video recording. Additionally, the OV16860 provides a nominal operating digital voltage (DVDD) spec of 1.0V. 1080p high definition (HD) video can be achieved at 120 FPS via high speed D-PHY and C-PHY interfaces. The OV16860 fits into a 10.5 x 10.5 mm module. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61058-146

Pressure Sensors

TE Connectivity (Berwyn, PA) has announced the 86BC, a 16-mm piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor packaged in a 316L stainless steel housing. O-ring mounting supports integration into industrial applications. The header-less unit utilizes silicon oil to transfer pressure from the steel diaphragm to the sensing element. A ceramic substrate is attached to the package containing laser-trimmed resistors, for temperature compensation and offset correction. An additional laser trimmed resistor adjusts an external differential amplifier and provides span interchangeability to within ±1%. Other features include 0-100mV output, -40 °C to +105 °C operating temperature, 1.0% interchangeable span, solid state reliability, and ±0.3% pressure non-linearity.
