The major factor driving the growth of APAC in the CMOS image sensor
market is the large number of users for mobile devices, webcams, and tablet PCs.
3] "Stacked CMOS image sensors
" are CMOS image sensors
in a stacked structure that layer the pixel section containing back-illuminated structure pixels onto chips containing the circuit for signal processing, as an alternative to the supporting substrates used in conventional back-illuminated CMOS image sensors
contemplated under a non-binding memorandum of understanding between Sony and Toshiba jointly announced on December 24, 2010; refurbishment of a part of the above semiconductor fabrication facilities into new wafer lines capable of manufacturing CMOS image sensors
; and, refurbishment and equipment of a part of production facilities at Nagasaki TEC Building 3 for wafer processing to differentiate Sony's CMOS image sensors
with Sony's independently developed unique technologies.
To date, CMOS image sensors
have not had the technical capability to compete in the digital camcorder market; CCDs have dominated this entire market segment.
Samples of VGA-size CMOS image sensor
camera SoC devices (part number: MI-SOC-0343) and stand-alone VGA-size CMOS image sensors
(part number: MI-0343) are available now.
As the widespread adoption of digital lifestyles in emerging economies continues to boom, CMOS image sensor
demand is keeping pace.
Sony has developed new stacked CMOS image sensor
technology that realises higher image quality and improved functionality in a more compact size.
2) Approximately twice as sensitive as a conventional front-illuminated CMOS image sensor
by combining back-illuminated CMOS image sensor
and bright lens with small f-number.
