Samsung has developed 2.1MP and 1.3MP CMOS image sensors that will bring high-definition support to webcams and cameras requiring video capture. The 1.3MP (S5K6A1) and 2.1MP (S5K5B3) image sensors are specifically created to accommodate in thin LCD notebook panels without compromising on the capture quality.
The imagers boast improved low-light sensitivity of 70Lux while the 2.1MP (S5K5B3) supports 1080p at 30fps whereas the 1.3MP (S5K6A1) supports 720p at 30fps. Additionally with the integration of enhanced depth of field (EDoF) function, the 2.1MP sensor is capable to read barcodes and business cards.
Samsung is currently sampling both the sensors while the mass production is slated for Q2 2010.
