Micron Introduces Smaller 2-Megapixel Image Sensor

Micron Technology today introduced a new, one-quarter inch, 2-megapixel image sensor for mainstream camera phones. According to the press release, Micron is the first company to incorporate Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) standards into an image sensor, allowing cameras to be more easily designed into mobile phones.

The new 2-megapixel sensor (product number MT9D112) complements Micron's existing CMOS image sensor portfolio for mobile handsets, which span the gamut from VGA to 5-megapixel resolution. As with all Micron image sensors, the MT9D112 is powered by Micron’s proprietary DigitalClarity technology.

Key highlights of the MT9D112 include:

  • The first image sensor that supports both a parallel interface as well as the MIPI serial interface (both CSI-2 and D-PHY)
  • Developed using Micron's 2.2-micron pixel technology, it reduces the sensor form-factor to one-quarter inch
  • Fully integrated system-on-chip (SoC) sensor that includes an integrated microcontroller for more efficient image processing, global reset to avoid image tearing, and pixel binning for enhanced image viewing. The microcontroller also features integrated auto focus.
  • Capable of 15 fps at full resolution and 30 fps in video mode.

General customer sampling is planned for April 2006, with mass production expected in August 2006.
