Fabless semiconductor company Pixelplus Co. Ltd unveiled its new customized VGA SoC image sensor designed for various mobile and non-mobile applications.

Based on the Korean company's PlusPixel technology in 0.13?m CMOS process, the PO4030 features an optical size of 1/8.7-inch. This sensor integrates advanced image signal processing (ISP) algorithms and refined 2.6-micron pixel array, and delivers enhanced and sharper image quality in low light conditions. This can be attributed to functional features which have been incorporated and fortified in the pixels and the ISP engine embodied in the PO4030.

The PO4030 embeds an on-chip regulator which enables a single 2.8V operation to reduce the costs of camera module solutions. With a two-wire serial interface, the device can be programmed to control operating modes with respect to the exposure time, frame rate, window size, scaling, sub-sampling and color matrix to produce high quality images in any operating environment.

Samples of the PO4030 are currently available and volume production of the PO4030 is expected to commence in Q4.

Pixelplus disclosed that they plan to feature its newly developed image sensor in chip-on-board, ceramic leaded chip carrier and chip-scale-packaging to support various mobile and non-mobile applications, including security and surveillance applications, PC webcams and notebook cameras, toys and games, and mobile phones with dual camera functionality.
