GMAX2518 expands GMAX Sensor Family to Include a 1” format 18 Megapixel Global Shutter Image Sensor


December 1st 2020, Changchun, China – Gpixel announces the further expansion of the popular C-Mount GMAX product family with the GMAX2518, a 1” format Global Shutter CMOS image sensor for industrial applications. The sensor is designed around the proven 2.5 µm charge domain global shutter pixel, provides 4508(H) x 4096(V) resolution (18 MP), and supports up to 64fps with 12bit output and 150fps with 10bit output. GMAX2518 is pin and footprint compatible with GMAX2505, GMAX2509 and GMAX0505.

The 2.5 um pixel achieves a full well capacity of 8k e-, read noise less than 2 e- and maximum dynamic range of 66dB. With the implementation of micro lens and light pipe technologies, the sensor provides a peak QE of 65%, a PLS of -80dB and excellent angular response.

GMAX2518 uses 32 pairs of sub-LVDS channels, each run at a maximum speed of 960MHz. The sensor supports channel multiplexing for lower data rate implementations, and integrates a variety of read-out functions including windowing, sub sampling and image flipping. With an outer dimension of 20.8 mm x 19.5 mm, GMAX2518’s 226-pin LGA ceramic package is designed to fit easily into a standard 29 mm x 29 mm camera housing.

“We are excited to offer customers another sensor in this very popular 2.5um-pixel family, now supporting 4 unique cameras from only 1 hardware design. The expansion of Gpixel’s line up of C-mount compatible global shutter sensors empowers our customers to develop a broad portfolio of high performance cameras in the most resource efficient and cost effective way possible. This product is part of our fast growing GMAX product family, which we will continue to expand in the near future to help our customers make the most of their investment in Gpixel,” says Wim Wuyts, CCO of Gpixel.

GMAX2518 engineering samples can be ordered today for delivery in December 2020. For more information, please contact us at
