Toshiba launches new image sensor
Tokyo, July 7, 2013
Japan’s engineering and electronics conglomerate Toshiba has launched a 1.12 micrometre, 13 megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor with colour noise reduction (CNR).
The ‘T4K37’ also incorporates a high dynamic range (HDR) function that reproduces dark and bright areas in high contrast images, said a statement.
The product’s high frame rate of 30 fps at full resolution reduces delays in imaging, resulting in less shutter lag, and allows continuous shooting, it said.
The integrated CNR circuit makes it possible to achieve the same signal-to-noise ratio as equivalent products fabricated with 1.4 micrometre pixel process.
The image sensor can be used in cameras for cell phones, smartphones and tablet PCs, said the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
