Highlights

 

The IMX421 offers 2.86 Mpixels, capturing HD images at frame rates up to 371fps, and a staggering 780fps max at lower resolutions.
 

The IMX420, with its 7.10 Mpixels is a significant step up, with many applications now requiring more resolution, either to see finer details, or to be able to image a much larger area, and maintain good resolution over the whole area, this sensor is a perfect fit.

 

The IMX530 for the Easy MVC kit is releasing later this year. The IMX530 offers an impressive 24.55Mpixels. It is a next generation Pregius S part, with the signal processing stacked on the backside illuminated sensor it creates a very compact sensor for the resolution.
