Samsung Announces HD Webcam CMOS Sensors

South Korea’s Samsung has two new high-performance, high definition CMOS image sensors – the S5K6A1 and the S5K5B3 – for use in notebook computers and other devices requiring video capture.

Samsung said their new 1.3Megapixel (S5K6A1) and 2.1Megapixel (S5K5B3) imagers were developed with a strong emphasis on high-performance, real-time high-definition (HD) images at up to 30 frames per second (fps) at full resolution for internet video/image sharing and high quality VGA resolution for applications requiring video conferencing.

The new S5K5B3 image sensor supports camera modules with full 1080p HD at 30fps capability in a z-height less than 4.5mm. Samsung’s new S5K6A1 image sensor has been designed for camera modules with 720p HD at 30fps capability in a z-height less than 3.5mm.

“HD capable imagers are fundamentally changing the way consumers interact with their computers, making webcams a ‘must have’ feature in today’s notebooks and personal computers for high definition multimedia usage,” said Dojun Rhee, vice president, System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics.

Samples for both of these CMOS image sensors are currently available with mass production scheduled for the second quarter 2010.
