What is an Image Sensor?

An image sensor is an electronic, photosensitive device which converts an optical image into an electronic signal. It is composed of millions of photodiodes and is used as an image receiver in digital imaging equipment. An image sensor is capable of reacting to the impact of photons, thus converting them into an electrical current that is then passed onto an analog-digital converter. The most common types of image sensors are CCD and CMOS sensors.

Types of Image Sensors

There are many different kinds of image sensors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by supply voltage, packaging type and supply current. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common values for supply current are 12.8 to 60.1 mA, 35 to 40 mA, 40 to 62 mA and 50 mA. We also carry image sensors with supply current as high as 35 to 40 A. Supply voltage can be between 1.7 V and 4.5 V, with the most common chips having a supply voltage of 2.5 to 3.3 V.

Image Sensors from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a full image sensor chip selection from several manufacturers that can be used for a CCD image sensor, digital camera image sensor, high speed CMOS image sensor, contact image sensor, linear image sensor, image sensor IC (integrated circuit) or any circuits that may require a image sensor. Simply choose from the image sensor technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed in order to match your specific image sensor application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with Cypress, Fairchild, Melexis, ON Semiconductor and STMicroelectronics as manufacturers. You can easily refine your image sensor product search results by clicking your preferred image sensor brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Image Sensors:

Image sensors are mostly used in camera modules, digital cameras and other imaging devices. Some of the earliest analog sensors were video camera tubes. Currently, the most common image sensors are digital charge-coupled device (CCD) or complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) active pixel sensors. In a camera, a photo electronic image sensor converts the light passing through the lens into per-photodiode charges of varying sizes. These charges are then processed by the camera’s electronics and are converted into image information by the camera’s software. Applications in the dental x-ray field include intra-oral, panoramic, and cephalometric imaging.

Choosing the Right Image Sensor:

When you are looking for the right image sensors, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Supply Current (1.4 µA, 12.8 to 60.1 mA, 35 to 40 mA , 40 to 62 mA, 50 mA,… ) and Supply Voltage (up to 4.5V) to name a few. You will be able to find the right semiconductor chip for a high speed CMOS image sensor, CCD image sensor, digital camera image sensor, image sensor IC (integrated circuit), contact image sensor or linear image sensor.

Image Sensors in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of image sensors that you require is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our image sensor products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
