Micron introduces 1/5" camera sensor

  • Camera phones and webcams could get even smaller because Micron has introduced their new 1/5" wide 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor. The MT9M019 sensor captures 1280 by 1024 pixel pictures at 30 fps or 640 by 480 pixels at 60 fps. Micron claims the low-light sensitivity of the sensor is about 1 lux which is equal to one candle.

    Micron is making small samples of the MT9M019 sensor now and expects mass production later this year.
