TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced that it will launch a Full-HD (1080p), 1.12 micrometer, back side illumination (BSI) CMOS image sensor integrating a color noise reduction (CNR) circuit. Samples will be available at the end of April with mass production scheduled to start in September.
The new 1.12 micrometer image sensor, "T4K71", integrates both BSI and CNR to achieve a signal to noise ratio (SNR) equal to Toshiba's existing 1.4 micrometer product. It enables chip and camera module miniaturization and will contribute to achieving thinner smartphones and tablets.
The T4K71 delivers a high speed frame rate of 60 fps at full resolution, essential for smooth, continuous recording of full high-definition video.
