Diagonal 15.86 mm (Type 1) Approx. 20.48M-Effective Pixel Monochrome/Color CMOS Image Sensor
High-Speed and High-Picture-Quality Rolling Shutter-Type Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensors with Multi Pixel and All-Pixel Global Reset Function
In the industrial application field, needs are increasing for faster products with higher pixel counts and for rolling shutter functions. To meet these needs, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has developed the “IMX183CLK-J/CQJ-J” CMOS image sensors equipped with an all-pixel global reset function. The image sensor uses a high sensitivity back-illuminated structure 2.4 µm square unit pixel, and we have developed both color (IMX183CQJ-J) and monochrome (IMX183CLK-J) products. The optical size is Type 1 to enable use of a C-mount lens. In addition, these products are equipped with a variety of functions such as 4K video mode and a vertical arbitrary cropping function.
- Supports 20.48M-pixel readout at 21.98 frame/s in 12-bit mode
- Supports all-pixel global reset (use with mechanical shutter)
- Supports 4K video mode (4096H × 2160V, 10-bit mode, 59.94 frame/s)
- Supports a variety of readout modes such as 10-bit high-speed all-pixel readout, 12-bit high-resolution readout, and vertical arbitrary cropping
- High-sensitivity back-illuminated structure 2.4 µm square unit pixel with a proven record in products for security camera and industrial applications

Supports 20.48M-pixel readout at 21.98 frame/s in 12-bit mode
High-resolution 12-bit digital output of the signals for 20.48M pixels (aspect ratio 3:2) realizes high-speed readout at 21.98 frame/s. This image sensor enables even higher resolution imaging of finer objects at high frame rates in excess of 20 frame/s, while still maintaining high picture quality.
Supports all-pixel global reset (use with mechanical shutter)
The IMX183CQJ-J/CLK-J series is equipped with a global shutter function that can globally reset the internal accumulated charges using an external trigger. Imaging with a flash and mechanical shutter after this all-pixel global reset makes it possible to align the exposure start timing of all pixels, achieving storage operation similar to that of a global shutter. The exposure time can also be adjusted by varying the vertical sync signal input period. (However, the minimum vertical sync signal period is 18 times the horizontal readout period.)
Supports 4K video mode (4096H × 2160V, 10-bit mode, 59.94 frame/s)
10-bit digital output of the signals for approx. 9.03M-effective pixels (aspect ratio approx. 17:9) realizes high-speed output at 59.94 frame/s and also enables video imaging.
Supports various readout modes
The IMX183CQJ-J/CLK-J series supports various readout modes including the above-noted high-resolution 12-bit all-pixel output, 10-bit all-pixel output that enables even faster readout, and high-speed 4K video output, as well as vertical arbitrary cropping output mode (cropping size restrictions apply) and a high-speed readout mode that uses the binning function (Table 3).
High-sensitivity back-illuminated structure 2.4 µm square unit pixel with a proven record in products for security camera and industrial applications
The IMX183CQJ-J/CLK-J series uses a high-sensitivity back-illuminated structure 2.4 µm square unit pixel with a proven record in the IMX178LLJ/LQJ*1 (for security camera and industrial applications).

This product is designed for consumer use applications, so the quality and reliability of the product are also the consumer use application range. This quality and reliability range should be kept in mind when using this product for other than consumer use applications.
The IMX183CQJ-J/CLK-J 20.48M-pixel CMOS image sensors have been newly developed for customers desiring image sensors with multi pixel for industrial applications. We developed both a color product (IMX183CQJ-J) and a monochrome product (IMX183CLK-J), and hope that customers will consider adopting these products for various applications.
