Sony Semiconductor Solutions today announced the IMX487-AAMJ Image Sensor. This is a CMOS type sensor designed for industrial applications. It uses back-illumination and layering technologies, and a key feature of the IMX487-AAMJ is ultraviolet sensitivity. More precisely, the sensor operates in the 200-400 nm wavelength range. Its optical format is 2/3 inches (11 mm diagonal) and the resolution of 8.13 megapixels (2856 x 2848 pixels) is the largest among UV global shutter sensors. The pixel size, in turn, is the smallest. It is equal to 2.74 microns.
The global shutter function, powered by Pregius S technology, displays moving objects without distortion, and provides the ability to shoot at speeds up to 193 fps in 10-bit mode and up to 127 fps in 12-bit mode. The new sensor will be useful in a variety of applications, including sorting raw materials, quality control of materials and components, and assembly quality of electronic products, Sony said.
The sensors are available in 20.0 x 16.8 mm LGA packages. Shipping starts this month.
The illustrations below show images taken in the visible range (left) and UV (right). The top pair illustrates the difference in the visibility of different plastics – polystyrene and acrylic resin – during the sorting process for recycling. The bottom photo shows the ability to control the quality of a protective coating, which is transparent in the visible range and opaque in the UV range.

It was announced by Mark Zuckerberg. The new feature will allow you to hide the number from all users in the group, but then open it to those who are included in the exclusion list. For now, this option is available. Other security enhancements have also been introduced. By the way, Telegram has had this feature for a long time.
“We will continue to create new ways to protect your communications and keep them private and secure as private conversations.“Zuckerberg said.
New features include:
- leaving group chats without notification for all participants;
- ban on taking screenshots in certain chats;
- a list of who can see when the user is online.
It is not yet reported when these features will appear in the release. Earlier, WhatsApp introduced a new feature for group chats.
