Kodak Introduces Enhanced Image Sensor

17 July 2008

Eastman Kodak has announced a new high-resolution CMOS Image Sensor that combines two new Kodak technologies to produce higher-quality pictures from a smaller sensor. The Kodak KAC-05020 Image Sensor combines the Color Filter Pattern technology with a new CMOS pixel to create the world’s first 1.4-micron, 5-megapixel device.

The Kodak Truesense Color Filter Pattern adds panchromatic or clear pixels to color ones in order to collect higher proportions of light, increasing capture in low-light and fast-action scenarios. The Kodak Truesense CMOS Pixel re-engineers the fundamental design and architecture of traditional CMOS pixels and provides for CMOS imaging performance that rivals that available from CCD image sensors.

The sensor is designed for mass-consumer use in such camera applications as mobile phones and enables higher resolution in these small optical formats, especially under low-light conditions.
