Samsung New 12MP CMOS Sensor Do Full HD Video Recording at 60fps
While generally a 720p HD video recording is used by current premium smartphones now, Samsung is preparing to launch a new 12 Megapixel CMOS sensor based on back side illuminated (BSI) pixel architecture. The 1/3.2-inch sensor supports 1080p full HD video recording at an impressive 60fps. It can also record 720p video at 90ftps for slow motion playback function in mobile phones.
In addition, the 12Mp imager offers an optional RGB-white color filter array, which delivers advanced sensitivity while reducing noise, resulting in a 30 percent brighter image over that of a conventional RGB color filter array. The RGB-white filter feature works in conjunction with a complimentary logic chip (S5C73L1), which converts RGB-White pattern to RGB Bayer for back-end Bayer ISP compatibility. The logic chip also provides features such as lens shading correction, image down scaling, noise reduction and significantly enhanced modulation transfer function to reproduce fine details.
Samsung’s S5K3L1 imager is designed to address an 8.5mm x 8.5mm auto focus camera module with a height dimension of 6.0mm for slim mobile phones and small form factor applications
Samples of the 12Mp imager are available now with mass production scheduled in the third quarter of this year.
