Tamron Announces 3Mp AF Camera Modules for Mobile Phones

Tamron 3Mp AF Camera Modules for Mobile Phones

Tamron’s new 3-megapixel AF camera module, intended for camera phones, is equipped with precise Squiggle motors to control its autofocus function. Tamron says this tiny motor enables auto focus and optical zoom in smaller phone handsets, with little drain on the batteries.

Inside the module is a 3Mp CCD image sensor with a 3x AF internal zoom. Nothing protrudes outside the module, allowing for slimmer designs of camera phones.

The camera module measures only 18.2×16.3×10.8mm.
