"Our relationship and strong partnership with Flextronics, the leading camera module provider, has enabled both of us to maximize our success in this market by jointly targeting OEM design wins," said Stewart.

The ADCC-3000's EP pixel architecture reduces dark current and noise, and removes the lens shading effect to offer breakthrough low-light CMOS sensor performance that rivals CCD sensors. Its new dynamic range expander enables outstanding contrast, and a new proprietary exposure control adjusts picture brightness without increasing noise linearly or washing out colors, as commonly occurs with existing cameras.

The ADCC-3000 is built for superior video and action shots, enabling high image data velocity and reduced image lag. The image-pipe processor is specifically tuned to Avago's EP pixel architecture and uniquely accommodates a wide range of lighting conditions, from indoor to sunlight to fluorescent, and enhances overexposed or underexposed images. The ADCC-3000's image pipe adjusts white balance and color, and corrects anomalies, including lens shadows, geometric distortion, reduced picture focus at the edge of the lens, and digital sensor noise. Unlike many third-party graphics processors, Avago's image pipe is tightly coupled with the CMOS sensor, resulting in better colors, higher contrast, truer skin tones and picture rendering that is highly adaptive to varying light, shadows and movement.

The ADCC-3000 sensor is capable of 15 frames per second at full 1280 by 1024 pixel SXGA (super extended graphics) resolution, and 30 frames per second in 640 by 480 pixel VGA mode. The ADCC-3000 contains several digital still-camera- and camcorder-like image-processing features:

-- Plausible illuminant (adapts to the ambient light), an automatic illuminant detector that improves auto white balance for true color accuracy(1).
