Toshiba launches 8 megapixel CMOS image sensor for smartphones and tablets
Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) announced the launch of “T4KA3”, an 8-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor that allows smartphones and tablets to record HD video at 240 equivalent frames per second (fps), the industry’s highest frame rate. Sample shipments start today.
High speed video recording requires a high frame rate with short exposure time, resulting in underexposed images. “T4KA3” incorporates “Bright Mode” technology that boosts image brightness up to four times, realizing HD video capture at 240 fps equivalent. It allows smartphones and tablets to record high quality, high speed video, and to offer extended imaging functions including smooth slow motion playback and high speed continuous shooting.
