STMicroelectronicsSingle-chip SXGA camera module for mobile phones : STMicroelectronics, a world leader in CMOS imaging technology and the largest supplier of camera modules for mobile phones in 2005, has introduced its latest single-chip 1.3-Megapixel (SXGA) camera subsystem for high-volume mobile applications. Integrating a CMOS sensor with a digital image processor and analog system functions in a tiny package, ST's VS6624 meets customer requirements for cost-effective, all-in-one mobile imaging solutions with maximum design-in flexibility. Engineering samples are available now, with the volume production scheduled for the end of Q1 06. Unit pricing is $8.50 in quantities up to 50,000 pieces.

"ST's vertically integrated supply chain, unique in this market, allows us to control all steps in the design and manufacturing process, resulting in highly optimized cost and excellent image quality," said Jean-Yves Gomez, Group Vice President and General Manager of ST's Imaging Division. "Our latest all-in-one SXGA camera module benefits from ST's advanced optical packaging, world-class image processing, and System-on-Chip integration expertise."

STMicroelectronics VS6624 camera module
The VS6624 camera module integrates a 1/3.7-inch optical-format sensor with an active pixel array of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), using ST's advanced 3.0 µm pixel design. ST's latest developments in pixel defect correction, sharpness enhancement, gamma correction, and color space conversion ensure that the embedded Image Signal Processor (ISP) delivers outstanding picture quality. Advanced anti-vignetting algorithms and automatic white-balance control support top-notch color rendition in varying light conditions.

VS6624 camera module - Digital video stream at full SXGA resolution
The device produces an industry-standard digital video stream at full SXGA resolution at up to 15 frames per second (fps), while its fully flexible image-scaling capability optimizes data for display in non-native resolution settings. The VS6624 also offers a low-power video mode, supporting 30 fps at VGA resolution. The VS6624 couples excellent image quality with small space requirements and high integration flexibility. It is housed in a tiny 8 x 8 x 6 mm Small Optical Package (SmOP2), with footprint further reduced by embedding passives in the module. To enable the best fit for their end application, customers can choose between a flex-cable package and a tape-and-reel variant, compatible with a range of industry-standard hardware sockets.

SXGA camera module - Price & Availability
In addition to mobile phones, the VS6624 camera module can be used in a wide range of portable devices such as PDAs, mobile gaming platforms, and videophones. Engineering samples are available now, with the volume production scheduled for the end of Q1 06. Unit pricing is $8.50 in quantities up to 50,000 pieces. The device is available in two package options, mounted on a 20-way flex cable (VS6624POL5) or in Tape-And-Reel (VS6624Q0KP).
