Sony to Develop Exmor R CMOS Image Sensors for Smartphones

Sony has declared that the company’s IMX081PQ camera sensor is designed in such a way as to overcome most of the conventional obstructions encountered with the mobile phone imagers.

The IMX081PQ is  Sony’s initial 16.41 megapixel camera sensor which uses Exmor R-enabled CMOS sensing unit in a phone.

The significant feature of this device is that it employs a back-illuminated sensing system to lower the background noise and the unique light diode positioning functionality delivers high-standard quality pictures even with a miniature 1.13 µm photo cell.

By deploying this functionality the device is capable of capturing 1080p video in 30 frames per second and the ultra-thin lens design eliminates the protrusion of the lens.

The IMX105PQ is designed for use in intelligent phones where space is highly limited. The device, with the integration of ultra-thin lens can be installed even into a small space with 5.67mm, maintaining its 16.4-megapixels, Exmor R configuration and intense light susceptibility.

Sony aims to initialize large-scale manufacture of its 8.13-megapixel and 16.41megapixel sensing devices in January, 2011.
