SMaL Camera Technologies has announced the availability of its Ultra-Pocket 3 rapid development kit for 1.3-megapixel credit card cameras with color TFT display. The company claims that the development kit enables OEMs to deliver the world's thinnest and most portable digital cameras with long battery life and high dynamic range to their customers quickly and affordably.

The Ultra-Pocket 3 kit offers 1.3-megapixel resolution, supports 1.5-inch or 1.8-inch color TFT LCD displays, and features the Autobrite and Longevity technologies. The Autobrite exposure technology provides more dynamic range than standard cameras, so details in both bright and dim areas are clearly visible at the same time.

The Longevity design with rechargeable battery uses roughly 90 percent less power than traditional digital cameras. The camera charges automatically during USB download and stores enough charge for more than 200 shots.

The kit includes 1.3-megapixel color CMOS image sensor with Autobrite, ASIC controller, lithium-polymer rechargeable battery, taking lens, optical viewfinder, and complete reference design specifications.
