Sony commercializes the world's highest sensitivity*1 CMOS image sensor for automotive cameras

Sony Corporation (hereafter "Sony") announces the commercialization of the "IMX224MQV" CMOS image sensor for automotive cameras, which boasts the world's highest sensitivity levels*1 of any image sensor of its kind. This sensor is capable of capturing high-resolution color images even in light conditions as low as 0.005 lux, a level equivalent to that of a moonless night and one that is far below illumination levels under a star-filled night sky. The "IMX224MQV" is set*2 to become Sony's first image sensor for automotive cameras to meet the requirements of the "AEC-Q100"*3 electronic component reliability tests.
