MicronThree Megapixel camera sensor for mobile phones : Micron Technology unveiled a 1/4-inch, 3-megapixel complete camera system-on-chip (SOC) sensor for mobile handsets. Unique to the market, Micron has designed an anti-shake feature into the camera sensor, which greatly reduces image blurring often found in camera phone pictures due to camera shake. Blurry images are especially common in low-light situations where the shutter is open for longer periods of time to collect enough light to take the picture. A camera phone designed with Micron’s new sensor (product number MT9T111) can dramatically reduce image blur by automatically activating the anti-shake feature when sensing camera shake.

“With the camera phone market’s move toward digital still camera quality pictures and features, our new 3-megapixel product is positioned to provide the ability to produce clean, sharp images under a wide range of conditions,” said Bob Gove, vice president of Micron’s imaging group. “Our latest product incorporating advanced image processing coupled with the anti-shake feature will push performance expectations throughout the industry.” Micron offers several 3-megapixel image sensors in differing optical formats, but this new sensor is the first in its class with the anti-shake feature. The new 3-megapixel sensor was developed on Micron’s industry-leading 1.75-micron pixel and integrates additional camera capabilities on chip including JPEG compression and image processing that would typically require additional chips. For basic operation, the sensor only requires a power supply, lens and clock source.

“Even small movement can blur an image when taking a picture with a camera phone,” said Chris Crotty, an analyst with iSuppli. “Image sensor suppliers, like Micron, are moving beyond simply increasing image resolution and shrinking form factors for today’s camera phones, designing in some pretty innovative digital camera-like features on chip.” Micron’s CMOS image sensor portfolio offers designers of virtually every image-capture application the flexibility, speed, resolution and feature set needed to develop high-quality products. Micron’s portfolio of CMOS image sensors are used in a variety of applications that span the mobile, consumer, medical, automotive, commercial, industrial and high-speed markets. General customer sampling is planned for August 2007 with mass production expected in the fourth quarter of 2007.
