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 company’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.
