Toshiba today launched the of "T4K37", a 1.12µm, 13 Megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor with color noise reduction (CNR).
The specific part had been initially scheduled for release late last year but it seems that Toshiba has brought it to mass production six months later.
The small device integrates a CNR circuit fabricated with the 1.12µm pixel process and achieves the same signal-to-noise ratio as equivalent products fabricated with 1.4µm pixel process, according to Toshiba.
The T4K37 also incorporates a high dynamic range (HDR) function that faithfully reproduces dark and bright areas in high contrast images. The product's high frame rate of 30 fps at full resolution reduces delays in imaging, resulting in less shutter lag, and allows continuous shooting.
The CMOS has been optimized for use in cell phones, smartphones and tablet PCs.
