Discussing the company's decision to develop products that meet the SMIA specification, Mr. Murao, General Manager of Toshiba System LSI Div I, comments: "The camera module market is growing rapidly and there are increasing demands for standardisation of the specifications. To help meet those demands with proven, high performance solutions, Toshiba has decided to develop and commercialise camera modules that will be compliant with the SMIA standard."

Nokia and STMicroelectronics - Open standard
Introduced by Nokia and STMicroelectronics in 2004, SMIA is an open standard for use by all companies manufacturing, buying or specifying miniature integrated camera modules for use in mobile applications. The standard defines a highly flexible imaging sensor resolution and is applicable to three types of compact camera modules using a serial interface with a reduced number of pins.
