150 Megapixel CMOS image sensor

Gpixel Inc., a Changchun, China, startup founded in 2013, has designed and produced the world’s highest-resolution CMOS image sensor using the TS18IS manufacturing process technology at the foundry Tower Semiconductor Ltd. in Migdal Haemek, Israel.

Gpixel’s 150-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor (GMAX3005) has a resolution of 30,000 pixels by 5,000 pixels and is intended for use in the medical, industrial, and scientific imaging markets.

The GMAX3005 is a monochrome CMOS image sensor capable of running at 10 frames per second at full frame, with even higher frame rates achieved in row-windowing mode. It has an electronic rolling shutter. Constructed using wafer-scale production techniques, it has a die size of 167.6mm x 30.1mm, including a 165mm x 27.5mm photon-sensitive area. The GMAX3005 has a 16-bit on-chip ADC with 12-bit effective number of bits, along with 120 LVDS output pairs running at 200 Mbit/s. The sensor consumes less than 2.5 W at full frame rate in full resolution.
