Samsung Electronics has announced its high resolution 1.2-megapixel, 1/8.2-inch CMOS image sensor (CIS) system-on-chip (SoC), the S5K8AA. The new S5K8AA expands the company's product line-up of image sensors that support HD video and video telephony with an offering that can be used in camera modules shorter than 3mm for slim mobile device designs.
The new S5K8AA supports 30 frames per second (fps) at HD (720p) video and 60fps at VGA resolution. Low-light sensitivity during real-time video capture is enhanced by Samsung's 1.4 micrometer (um) backside illumination (BSI) pixel technology, the company said.
Samsung's S5K8AA image sensor is currently sampling to qualified customers.
