Micron samples three camera sensors for mobile handsets and one fully-fledged camera

Micron started sampling its new 2Mp CMOS sensor, MT9D011, designed for mobile handsets. The DigitalClarity innovation is claimed to provide good pictures in any environment lighting conditions.

MT9D011 is a 1/3" sensor that supports 1600x1200 still image resolution and is also able to capture 800x600 images at 30 fps or 1600x1200 images at 15 fps. The novelty can work with both electronic and mechanical shutters and supports image mirroring from left to right and top to bottom. Other features include programmable PLL and I/O mechanisms.

In a separate press release the company also announced MT9V012 dedicated sensor with reduced energy consumption and MT9V112 VGA sensor-on-a-chip. Both are also intended for mobile handsets, PDAs, etc.

MT9V112 has 4mm diagonal and is actually a fully-fledged camera-on-a-chip able to handle 13.5 megapixels at 27 MHz frequency. To get a complete solution, one will also need power source, lens and clock generator. Camera features include automatic exposure, white balance, color recovery and correction, sharpness improvement, programmable gamma correction, on-the-fly defect removal, scaling, etc. All features are programmed via a dual-wire serial interface.

MT9V012, in its turn, is a usual 1/6" sensor supporting progressive-scan video capture. It´s primarity designed for mobile handsets.
