Micron's Ultra-small 8-Megapixel Image Sensor


The world of digital cameras just got bigger and smaller at the same time. Using a tiny 1.75-micron pixel design, Micron Technology has built the first 8-megapixel image sensor in a 1/2.5-inch optical format, the standard size for mainstream digital cameras.

The company today unveiled a prototype of an 8-megapixel image sensor that offers high capture rates at full resolution and high-definition (HD) video capture. Because of its high resolution, the sensor captures large (11-inch by 14-inch) or can be used to zoom-in and print just a portion of the image without sacrificing image quality.

The sensor is capable of bursting more than 10 pictures a second at full 8-megapixel resolution and more than 30 pictures a second at 2-megapixel resolution. Also given its high-speed, the sensor allows for cameras to have advanced features like image stabilization for reducing the effect of blurred images typically caused by jittery hands and fast auto-focus response, resulting in sharper images .

The sensor also enables a digital camera to capture and playback HD video, which equates to shooting video at 30 frames per second (fps) in 720p (progressive) format.

Additionally, Micron announced its work on a 1.4-micron pixel and unveils pictures taken with test chip.

General sampling is planned for the fall of 2006 with mass production expected in the first half of 2007. The 8-megapixel pricing will be determined at the time of general customer sampling.
