Tiny Awaiba NanEye Camera

Wow camera technology is getting small! When attaching the wires to the camera is one of the main challenges you know you are dealing with something that is very small. These cameras are build using VSLI production just like chips are made. Awaiba has been working on perfecting this camera for a long time, it is best suited for the medical field but I can think of lots of other great applications.

“The NanEye 2B sensor provides a true system on chip camera head with fully self timed readout sequencing, AD conversion to 10 bit and bit serial data transmission over LVDS. AWAIBA’s proprietary data interface technology permits cable length’s up to 2m with out any additional components at the distal end. Due to the low energy dissipation on the interface no complicated shielding is required to meet EMC norms. With it’s 250 x 250 pixels at 3um pitch the sensors provide clear and sharp images with outstanding MTF in a very compact size. A frame rate of 44Fps permit synchronization to any type of display. The NanEye sensor provides delay free, smooth video operation resulting in a safe operation and a clear diagnosis. The sensors are connected to minimal diameter cabling solutions. As an option, a small lens an be assembled to the chip, this option does not increase the total diameter of the sensor, making it the world most compact digital camera.”
