The company Samsung Electronics announced the release of new CMOS image sensor S5K4AW with HD-resolution, designed for integration into notebook and desktop computers. The device can be used in applications such as videoconferencing, web-oriented Video, biometrics and security protection systems.
New odnokristalnoe decision is a type of SoC (System-on-Chip, System on chip). Sensor format 1/4"has a permit 1280h960 pixels. There is support for video 720p (30 k/s), the capture VGA-video can be carried out at speeds of up to 60 per second. According to the company, technology binninga pixels (summation of charges from adjacent pixels matrix) in groups of two to two enables VGA-video without kroppinga, as well as roughly three times the increase photosensitivity than most typical CMOS sensors.
Samples chips S5K4AW already supplied to producers. Mass start shipping in the first half of next year.
