Kodak Unveils New 5MP CMOS Image Sensor

Kodak CMOS Sensor

Kodak has a new 5-megapixel, 2.2 micron CMOS image sensor – the KAC-05010 – 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.

Don’t get turned off by the tech-talk; it’s just their fancy way of saying they have a better one this time.

If you’re not turned off and you’re interested, then you must be a camera/phone manufacturer. Turn to the link below for details.
