Smaller 2-megapixel Image Sensor for Today's Popular Thin Phones


Micron Technology, Inc a worldwide provider of advanced memory and image sensor solutions, introduced a one-quarter inch, 2-megapixel image sensor for design into mainstream camera phones, enabling these phones to capture richer, higher-quality digital pictures. Additionally, with this product’s introduction, the company will incorporate Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) standards into an image sensor, allowing cameras to be more easily designed into mobile phones.

With Micron’s new, smaller 2-megapixel (1,600 by 1,200 pixels) image sensor designed into phones, users will be able to take and print true, vibrant pictures on a 4-inch by 6-inch photo and up to full 8.5-inch by 11-inch formats.

The new 2-megapixel sensor complements Micron’s existing CMOS image sensor portfolio for mobile handsets, which span the gamut from VGA to 5-megapixel resolution. The MT9D112 is powered by Micron’s proprietary DigitalClarity® technology, providing best-in-class image performance. Micron Technology, Inc. Boise, Idaho
