PlusPixel System on a Chip Image Sensor Technology : Pixelplus, a leading fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops and markets complementary metal oxide semiconductor ("CMOS") image sensors for various consumer electronics applications, today unveiled its new second generation PlusPixel "System-on-a-Chip" ("SoC") image sensor product line based on the Company's PlusPixel image technology. The Company's new second generation PlusPixel SoC image sensors have a minimum pixel size of 2.2 micron and deliver digital still camera image quality based on Pixelplus' proprietary pixel design and know-how acquired through its development of CMOS image sensors and charged-coupled-device image sensors.


OmniVision expands automotive Camera Chip family

Mark Peters : 2006-04-30 13:30:00
OmniVision expands automotive Camera Chip family : OmniVision Technologies, a world leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today launched its OV7949, the newest member of its automotive CameraChip family. The OmniVision OV7949 is a new high-performance, highly-integrated analog CMOS image sensor based on OmniVision’s proprietary OmniPixel architecture. The single-chip sensor’s excellent low-light sensitivity and significantly reduced blooming make it ideal for automotive applications. Reduced blooming capability is important for rearview cameras, which need to be able to ‘see’ even when faced with bright headlights of trailing vehicles. The OmniVision CameraChip OV7949 is currently available in sample quantities.


5 Megapixel CMOS Chip from OmniVision

Mark Peters : 2006-04-20 08:18:00
5 Megapixel CMOS Chip from OmniVision : OmniVision, a supplier of CMOS image sensors, unveiled its second-generation, 5 megapixel camera chip. The OmniVision OV5620 offers a small form-factor, 5 megapixel CMOS camera that surpasses CCD sensors in performance. Furthermore, the OmniVision OV5620’s advanced high-definition video modes with vivid colors make this CameraChip especially attractive for next generation digital still cameras (DSCs) and hybrid cameras, which take both still and video pictures. "After several years of exponential growth, the DSC market has slowed down significantly, and the pixel race seems to have found its sweet spot around 5 megapixels," said Brian O’Rourke, Senior Analyst at market research firm In-Stat.


Sony high speed CMOS sensor

Mark Peters : 2006-04-19 17:36:00
Sony high speed CMOS sensor : Starting with their adoption in cellular phones in 2002, Sony’s CMOS sensors for Megapixel camera phones, digital high definition video cameras, and Digital SLRs have become widely used in commercial products. The greatest strength of CMOS sensors is that by including both digital and analog circuits on the same chip, their readout speed can be made dramatically faster than that of CCD. Sony is now pushing forward with the development of high-speed CMOS sensors for digital cameras that can provide continuous imaging from all pixels at the high frame rate of 60 frame/s. Sony is also developing in parallel a camera digital signal processor (DSP) that can take full advantage of this performance.
