Fujifilm CMOS Organic Image Sensor

Mark Peters : 2006-04-19 08:45:00
Fujifilm CMOS Organic Image Sensor : FujiFilm Japan has developed a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensor using an organic photoelectric conversion film, and successfully captured a monochrome image with it. A previous laboratory-level success in photographing with an organic photoelectric conversion film was made in combination with an imaging tube, by the Science & Technical Research Laboratories of Japan Broadcasting Corp. Instead of a CMOS circuit, however, that example used a 10cm-long imaging tube. Fuji Photo Film has encapsulated the organic photoelectric conversion film with a signal read circuit into a semiconductor package, making it much easier than an imaging tube to use in a compact consumer camera.


Nucore CleanCapture 2 high ISO capture image sensors

Mark Peters : 2006-03-09 08:15:00
NuCORE CleanCapture 2 High ISO capture image sensors : NuCORE once again raises the performance bar with superior image quality, performance, and integration. High ISO image capture, real time anti-blur, automatic face detection, red eye elimination and HD video capture (720p/1080i) for the digital video camera and digital still camera markets are now a reality. NuCORE Technology announced its new CleanCapture II family of image processors. The most powerful image processors in its class, the highly integrated SIP-2290 and NDX-2240 (code named Puma and Hayabusa) deliver the highest image quality, richest feature set and best performance in the market today at a price well suited to the demanding consumer electronics industry.


Kodak unveils new camera phone CMOS image sensor

Mark Peters : 2006-02-17 19:12:00
Kodak camera phone CMOS image sensor : Kodak continues to expand its portfolio of CMOS image sensors for consumer applications with the release of a new 1.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor targeted at the high-volume camera phone market. The Kodak KAC01301 image sensor expands Kodak’s portfolio of CMOS imagers, which provide manufacturers a range of solutions designed specifically for high-volume markets such as digital cameras and camera phones. The new sensors demonstrates Kodak’s commitment to developing next generation, cost effective CMOS image sensor devices that provide the image quality currently available from CCD image sensors, while taking advantage of the power, integration, and cost benefits associated with CMOS technology.


OmniVision Three Megapixel Camera chip upgrade

OmniVision Three Megapixel Camera chip upgrade : Today at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, OmniVision Technologies a supplier of CMOS image sensors, introduced the OmniVision OV3630DZL stacked die CameraChip solution. With a module size of 9x9x7 mm, the OmniVision OV3630DZL allows handset customers to upgrade their camera phones from 2 megapixels (OV2630DZL) to 3 megapixels without mechanical design changes. This ‘drop-in’ replacement method will significantly reduce time-to-market, which is critical in today’s highly competitive mobile phone market. The OmniVision OV3630DZL stacked die module was developed in close cooperation with OmniVision’s module partners, and samples are currently available.


Chip with embedded Autofocus Control from OmniVision

Mark Peters : 2006-02-13 15:30:00
Chip with embedded Autofocus Control from OmniVision : OmniVision Technologies a world leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona unveiled the world’s first ¼-inch, 2 megapixel CameraChip with fully integrated autofocus (AF) control on a single chip. OmniVision is the first company to integrate AF functions on a 2 megapixel CMOS image sensor. Using its unique 2.2 micron OmniPixel2 architecture, OmniVision was able to develop this very small 2 megapixel sensor and integrate a full autofocus control on the same die. The OV2645’s advanced autofocus functions work with an integrated microcontroller that can directly control a variety of autofocus motors through its GPIO pads or serial bus.


SMPD image sensor

Mark Peters : 2006-02-12 19:00:00
Planet82 Inc. announced the first U.S. demo of its highly sensitive image sensor, Single Carrier Modulation Photo Detector (SMPD), which uses nanotechnology to enable cameras to take high resolution photos or video in the dark, without a flash. The world's first chip of its kind, Planet82's SMPD image sensor is 2,000 times more sensitive to light than other image sensors. Until now, taking a picture in the dark without a flash or taking a picture of a candle-lit birthday cake without any other light in the room would yield a dark photograph. Planet82 makes it possible to take clear images even when the light level is less than 1 lux (or up to 0.1 lux). One lux is equivalent to the brightness from one candle one meter away in a dark room.


IBM created small and low-cost chipset

Ilse Jurriën : 2006-02-12 18:29:00
IBM created small and low-cost chipset : IBM scientists today announced that they have created a small, low-cost chipset that could allow wireless electronic devices to transmit and receive ten times faster than today’s advanced WiFi networks. Using the IBM-pioneered chip-making technology called silicon germanium, the chipset is able to send and receive information in a portion of the radio spectrum that is both unlicensed and can carry a much higher volume of data, a key advantage as data-intensive digital media formats, such as HDTV, become more pervasive. Several electronics companies are exploring the potential of including these chipsets in their products.


Worlds fastest digital camera image processor

Mark Peters : 2006-02-09 19:30:00
Worlds fastest digital camera image processor : We got into contact with the University of Wisconsin-Madison where Pamela Klabbers, an associate scientist in the Department of Physics, is working together with engineers to develop and test the imaging processor for use as part of the image detector at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. It shows us that as to image processing there is room for progress. It will take some time to find such power device in your own compact or digital SLR camera, but then again you need to have something to dream off? The following article reflects the development of the world’s fastest digital camera by the scientists of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
