Kodak has a new 5-megapixel, 2.2 micron CMOS image sensor â€“ the KAC-05010 â€“ targeted for mass-market consumer applications in the high-volume digital still camera and mobile phone markets.
The KAC-05010 image sensor, in the 1/2.5 format, promises improved image quality, lower noise and excellent color reproduction with its Kodak PixeLux technology, an architecture that uses pinned photodiodes and a four-transistor (4T) shared pixel structure to produce lower noise. It also includes charge-domain binning of multiple pixels on the imaging array for higher sensitivity and 30 frames per second video recording.
Donâ€™t get turned off by the tech-talk; itâ€™s just their fancy way of saying they have a better one this time.
