20MP BSI CMOS image sensor sets resolution bar higher

-January 09, 2013

A 20-megapixel CMOS image sensor, the tCM5115CL by Toshiba Corporation offers the industry's highest resolution in the 1/2.3 inch optical format, using backside illumination technology (BSI) to improve sensitivity and performance.

The TCM5115CL achieves a 15% improvement in full well capacity—the amount of charge an individual pixel can hold before saturating—against Toshiba's previous generation 16MP sensor (pixel size = 1.34μm). It is designed to meet the demands of high quality, fast frame rate image capture and HD video recording supporting smooth, slow motion playback, and delivers the high frame rates 60fps at 1080p and 100fps at 720p.

Features include:

  • Optical Format - 1/2.3 in.
  • Resolution - 20MP
  • Pixel Size - 1.2 micrometers
  • Frame Rate - 30fps@20MP, RAW10, 60fps@1080P, 100fps@720P

Sampling will begin at the end of January 2013 and mass production will follow in August 2013. Contact company for delivery and pricing.
