Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has announced the development of its high-quality CMOS image sensor (CIS) chips and camera modules. The 1/3-inch, SXGA (1.3mega pixel) and a 1/5.8-inch, VGA (330,000 pixel) camera module, including the CIS and ISP (Image Signal Processor) chips, will be available for mass production in December 2003.

With a minimum illumination rating of <2 lux, the CIS chipset complies with the EIA (Electronics Industries Alliance) standard method less than one tenth of the 10 to 20, or above, lux levels found in current CIS chips. This is also equivalent to that of CCDs.

Manufactured using the company's active pixel sensor and ADC processing technologies, the product features a dark current level of -20e/s at RT and random noise level of <10e to achieve high SNR and high sensitivity of 1.8V/lx-sec. At 24MHz, 1.3 million pixel images are reproduced at 15fps lowering power consumption levels down to as low as 72mW.
