Beefed up CMOS image sensor easily upgrades VGA camera phones to SXGA

Micron Technology’s new MT9M112, a 1/4-inch, 1.3 megapixel CMOS image sensor for SXGA cameras, is essentially a fully integrated SoC sensor that includes all the necessary imaging and digital signal processing in a one chip, requiring few parts and potentially reducing design costs. In addition, it enables mobile phone manufacturers to upgrade their existing 1/4-inch VGA cameras to 1/4-inch megapixel cameras with the same height and footprint.
