CypressCypress CMOS mobile image sensor : Cypress Semiconductor today launched a suite of 1/4-inch optical format, 1.3-megapixel imaging solutions designed to directly replace existing 1/4-inch VGA image sensors and 1/4-inch VGA SoC image sensors in camera-enabled mobile phones. These low-cost imaging solutions enable mobile device manufacturers to upgrade their offerings with improved image quality at higher resolution while maintaining the same optical format and form factor, resulting in a less-expensive bill-of-materials and lower cost of ownership. The image sensor and SoC feature a pixel size of 2.8-micron x 2.8 and an image array of 1280 x 1024 active pixels. Both devices offer progressive scan and an electronic rolling shutter.

The CYIW-OSC-1300AA 1.3 MP digital image sensor and CYIW-CSC-1300AA 1.3 MP digital SoC image sensor are the first camera phone image sensors manufactured on Cypress's 0.13-micron CMOS process optimized specifically for digital image sensors. The image sensors take advantage of Cypress's high fill-factor pixel architecture to dramatically improve light sensitivity without sacrificing image quality. The pixel architecture also eliminates the need for microlenses.

Cypress CMOS - Improved image quality
"We recognize that mobile device users are demanding improved image quality on smaller and smaller form factors," said Luc De Mey, vice president of Cypress's image sensor business unit. "Our 1.3-megapixel image sensor solutions directly address this requirement by delivering economical camera-enabled products with improved image quality and resolution within existing form factors."

Cypress Semiconductor - 1/4 inch optical format
Cypress's 1.3-megapixel image sensor features a 1/4-inch optical format, a frame rate of more than 15 frames-per-second (fps) at full resolution and image windowing to any size, while sustaining smooth, continuous video preview at reduced power consumption. The sensor acts as a master in a system, accepting commands from a two-wire serial interface and delivering Bayer-patterned RGB images or video-like streams through a 10-bit parallel data interface.

Cypress SXGA - System on a chip
The 1.3-megapixel System-on-a-Chip (SoC) image sensor is an SXGA 1/4-inch format camera that produces high-quality color still pictures, even under very poor lighting conditions. The 1.3-megapixel SoC combines CMOS imaging technology for high-quality, CCD-like image performance with CMOS-derived high integration, ease of design, low cost, and low power consumption required by high-performance camera phone applications and low-cost, high-volume applications. The SoC integrates a state-of-the-art image sensor core with an advanced, on-chip image signal processor capable of defect interpolation, black level calibration, lens de-shading, crosstalk compensation, color mosaic interpolation, color correction, auto white balancing with illuminant estimation, auto exposure and gain control, sharpening, noise reduction, special effects and gamma correction.

Cypress image sensor - Low power memorie
Cypress's broad CMOS image sensor portfolio spans both the high-end and consumer mass markets. Cypress delivers high-performance sensors for custom and high-end digital photography; ultra high-speed imaging solutions for automotive safety, machine vision and motion analysis; and consumer-oriented solutions for ultra-slim digital still cameras, single-use cameras and camera-enabled mobile devices. CMOS image sensors complement Cypress's technology and market strengths. The sensors expand Cypress's existing presence in digital still cameras, where it sells a broad array of timing solutions; in the automotive sector, where it sells configurable microcontrollers and memories; and in mobile phones where it is a leader in low-power memories.

Cypress imaging sensor - Pricing & Availability
Cypress is currently sampling the CYIWOSC1300AA with production volumes expected to be available in December of 2005. Cypress expects to sample the CYIWCSC1300AA in the fourth quarter of 2005 with production quantities available in the second quarter of 2006. Pricing for both devices is expected to be below $3.00 each, in quantity. High-resolution photos of the devices and data sheets are available at the website.
