Toshiba Introduces New 8-Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor and 2MP CSCM in 1/5-inch Optical Format


Toshiba Expands Dynastron┬« image sensor and chip scale camera modules (CSCMs) with the introduction of a new 8-megapixel (MP) CMOS image sensor and a 2MP CSCM in a 1/5-inch optical format. Both devices use Toshiba’s 1.75-micron image sensor process technology which was designed to address the needs of the mobile handset market by delivering large pixel counts in a small form factor and capturing high-quality images in low-light conditions. The 8MP Dynastron image sensor (part number ET8ER4-AS) is designed for use in high-end camera phones that offer auto-focus or optical zoom capabilities. The 2MP CSCM uses Toshiba’s through chip via technology to allow mounting and assembly of camera components in the chip wafer during manufacturing to reduce the module’s size by as much as 64 percent in comparison to other camera modules…
