Toshiba has just announced the launch of "T4KA7", a 1/2.4 inch, 20-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor, which enables 6mm z-height camera modules for smartphones and tablets.
With a 1.12 micrometer pixel size contributing to a smaller chip size, Toshiba’s new sensor achieves 20 megapixel images at its highest level and realizes 6mm z-height camera modules for smartphones and tablets.
The new sensor also offers a much improved frame rate of 22fps, 1.8 times faster than that of Toshiba's previous 20-megapixel sensor.
The Japanese company has started sampling the T4KA7 and plans to start mass production next February.
