Aptina introduces a new image sensor for mobile phones

The sensor allows mobile phone manufacturers to easily update existing 1/3.2-inch optical format designs, including those manufacturers using Aptina’s 5MP MT9P012, providing increased resolution from 5MP to 8MP in the same size camera module. The new sensor provides high definition video of 720p at 30 fps and 60fps, or 1080p at 30fps with advanced binning techniques supporting the sensor’s high quality image performance.  Additionally, the sensor’s 2-lane MIPI®, CCP2 and parallel interfaces provide handset manufacturers with added high speed flexible options. The new 8MP MT9E013 compliments Aptina’s mobile image sensor portfolio which includes 2MP, 3MP, 5MP and 8MP solutions.
