Renesas to Develop Camera Sensors for Smartphones

Renesas, a manufacturer of camera chips based in Japan, has declared that the company is planning to produce a sensor called, CE150 that would enable the manufacturing of 16 MP cameras.

The CE150 will offer considerable enhancement for current cameras used in smartphones such as the 12.1-MP camera in the Nokia N8 or the 13-MP cameras from manufacturers in Japan. The latest chipset would allow nonstop shooting that will be five fold quicker than the existing camera phones  in the market.

The CE150 will enable cameras to take pictures at a resolution of 1,080 p and playback, as the company’s chips are able to perform currently. Renesas has  not disclosed anything about the phone producer who is going to use the chip. The company has already shipped sample chips. The volume production of  CE150 will commence in March 2011.
