Micron Technology, Inc. has introduced a tiny (0.2-inch) 2-megapixel imaging system-on-chip (SOC) geared towards thin mobile phones, PC cameras and PDAs.
Micron said the new imaging SOC (product number MT9D113) complements the companyâ€™s portfolio of image sensor products based on its high-performance 1.75-micron pixel design. The new imaging SOC was announced at the 2008 Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona, Spain.
The new imaging SOC boasts excellent low-light sensitivity and high-speed image capture, with video modes of 15 frames per second (fps) at full resolution and 30 fps in viewfinder mode. With its one-fifth inch optical format, the new imaging SOC enables a 6.5×6.5 mm camera module size.
