Toshiba introduces the T4KA7, a 1/2.4 inch, 20-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor, designed to enable 6mm z-height camera modules for smartphones and tablets.
Smartphones and tablets increasingly require smaller cameras with much higher resolution. Featuring a 1.12 micrometer pixel size contributing to a smaller chip size, Toshiba’s new sensor achieves 20 megapixel images at its highest level and realises 6mm z-height camera modules for smartphones and tablets.
The new sensor also offers a much improved frame rate of 22fps, 1.8 times faster than that of Toshiba’s previous 20-megapixel sensor.
A reference module incorporating the new product will be available from September 1.
The launch of the new 20-megapixel CMOS image sensors reinforces Toshiba’s commitment to meeting demands for higher resolution images for smartphones and tablets.
