The Milbeaut line of image-processing chips integrate various functions necessary for image processing - such as color interpolation, compression, and a variety of interfaces - into a single chip.
The new MB91683 chip is ideal for compact, slim, and lightweight digital cameras, as it provides basic functionalities required on a single chip. Functions which in the past required peripherals devices - such as audio processing, calendar features, anti-shake with high-sensitivity photography, are now featured on the chip. Integrating these functions into a single chip enables the design of smaller, lighter, and slimmer cameras featuring high-resolution imaging.
MB91686 is based on the MB91683 model and offers additional features for video recording and playback and CD-quality audio processing.
Both chip models are manufactured at Fujitsu's advance semiconductor fab in Mie, Japan using 300-mm wafers and 90 nanometer (nm) process technology.
