Micron Technology Inc. has launched the MT9M011 1.3Mpixel image sensor that is designed for mid- to high-end mobile markets, including smart phones and 3G phone platforms.

Based on a 1/3-inch optical format, the MT9M011 sensor delivers superior low-light performance, exceeding sensitivity levels of CMOS-based sensors and matching the sensitivity levels of CCD-based sensors. The low-noise DigitalClarity technology enables the sensor to capture quality color images without increasing power requirements.

Additional features include a programmable gain and exposure control and black-level calibration, a frame rate of up to 30fps at 50mW along with image decimation to any size while sustaining smooth, continuous motion.

Bob Gove, Micron's VP of Imaging, said, "We have achieved a lower dark current, low lag, higher quantum efficiency and higher sensitivity; thus providing a sensor that matches state-of-the-art CCDs yet requires less power than competing 1.3MP (Megapixel) sensors."
