Breeze SystemsIC Media Corporation, a leading developer of CMOS image sensors, announced the successful development of the industry's first CMOS image sensors using a 2.575 x 2.575 micron pixel. The test vehicles using this pixel were 3 and 4 Megapixel sensors. These devices were developed using an extension of IC Media's proprietary EmeraldPixel architecture, which offers an industry-leading 25 degree acceptance angle. The sensors also incorporate certain optical enhancement technologies to improve quantum efficiency. "This development is a testament to IC Media's continuing technological leadership," commented Richard Char, President and CEO, IC Media. - A sample image captured with the new pixel technology is used in this article -
IC Media develops first CMOS using 2.575 Micron "With a pixel size of only 2.575 microns, we now have a platform to create 3, 4 and 5 Megapixel sensors for camera modules in form factors ideal for widespread proliferation in camera phones."

"We developed these devices as benchmarks in our technology roadmap, and are very pleased with the excellent image quality we have achieved," said Dr. Chen Feng, VP Optics at IC Media. "We were able to shrink the sensor by more than 40%, while maintaining excellent sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio."

The sensor was manufactured at UMC, using their most advanced CMOS image sensor process. "Significant advancement in UMC's CIS process enabled us to build these parts," said Dan Yoder, IC Media's Chief Operating Officer. "Working together, we were able to design and produce these prototypes in less than 6 months. It's gratifying to obtain such good results with first silicon."
