Windows Hello Face Recognition Sony IMX488 RGBIR CMOS Image Sensor
Sony IMX488 RGBIR is a 1/8” inch 1.1 megapixel (720P) optical format CMOS image sensor. It leverages the latest RGBIR (two in one) imaging technology, making it to be perfect for face recognition applications. Comparing conventional RGB+IR requiring two different CMOS image sensors combing together as a module, Sony IMX488 RGBIR image sensor utilizing new color filter and DTI (deep trench isolation) technology.
New color filter: optimized light spectrum, enhanced each pixel sensitivity, greatly improved color saturation.
Deep touch isolation technology: each pixels will generate interference hence sensing incorrect color, this phenomenon we call it crosstalk, will impact image color. By placing a isolating plate between pixels can ensure each pixels will not effect each other, can also improve de-noise and color clarity capability.
Sony IMX488 RGBIR can reduce cost for final products. Currently Sony RGBIR CMOS image sensor has been deployed in the latest hardware, it will be used for face recognition of Windows Hello.
New CMOS image sensor is scheduled to mass production in September 2018.
