Sharp Develops 4K HD CMOS Image Sensor for Mobile Devices

Sharp has unveiled a new image sensor for 4K HD video recording. The new CMOS image sensor is designed for shooting video at 4K and has a resolution of 12-megapixels, with each pixel having a size of 3.1 x 3.1 micrometers. The pixel size, combined with a sensitivity level of 1.42 V/lux-sec, was achieved using Sharp’s own proprietary image cell technology. The sensor is capable of recording 4K or 2K video at 60 fps. Power consumption rate is at a mere 420 microwatts, allowing the sensor to considerably reduce image noise due to heat. Specialty-wise, the new CMOS image sensor is more geared for darker
