250MP CMOS Sensor

The LI8020 is an ultra-high resolution CMOS sensor at 250 megapixels (19,568 x 12,588 pixels) in APS-H format (29.37mm x 18.90mm) with a 1.5µm pixel size, and all pixel progressive reading of 5fps.

  • Ultra High 250MP CMOS Sensor
  • 1.5μm Square Pixels
  • Full Area Readout: 5fps


Ultra High Resolution

Approximately 125 times that of full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and approximately 30 times that of 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels)—allowing users to crop selected areas and digitally zoom to expand images while still retaining sufficiently high resolution.

Region of Interest (ROI)

Allows users to an arbitrary region to read from the sensor, reducing the amount of reading information and allowing for image capture at an increased framerate. Using this function, 8K (7680 x 4320 pixels) video can be captured at 24fps, 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 30fps and full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) at 60fps.

High Readout Speed

While delivering an incredibly high pixel count of approximately 250 million, features miniaturized circuitry and enhanced signal processing technology to achieve an ultra-high pixel readout speed of approximately 1,250 megapixels per second. This enables the sensors to realize ultra-high resolution image capture at up to approximately 5 frames per second (fps), even during full pixel readout.

FPD inspection using LI8020SAM

Canon’s technology offers the capabilities to take your flat panel display inspection system to improve, delivering on speed and efficiencies that increase productivity.

With the advancement of 4K and 8K video technology and the increasing resolution of display panels, there is a concomitant rise in demand for industrial cameras used in panel inspections. These cameras in turn require high-resolution image sensors that have passed strict shipping inspections. what's more, Flat-panel display (FPD) manufacturers need to continually find small productivity improvements on inspection, and Canon CMOS sensors offer the high-value flat panel display inspection process according to technology like high resolution, frame rate, power consumption.
