White Paper Overview

Flickering LEDs and high dynamic range (HDR) are two main challenges for automotive cameras in road scenarios. Automotive image sensors providing high-performance HDR with light and LED flicker mitigation (LFM) are powering the latest advancements in ADAS and autonomous driving as well as better viewing applications such as surround and rearview, e-mirror, digital video recording, and augmented reality displaying. This white paper presents the design and testing of a 3 μm super-exposure pixel 1.3 MP CMOS image sensor for automotive applications that provides up to 140 dB HDR coverage with multi-exposure and effective HDR with LFM capabilities. Read more about how to implement multiple operation modes to cover complete range of automotive scenarios and address these challenges.
