Toshiba Starts Mass Production Shipment of 20-Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor

- Realizes camera modules with height of 6 mm or less for smartphones and tablets -

TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 5, 2015Toshiba Corporation's (TOKYO: 6502) Semiconductor & Storage Products Company has reinforced its line-up of BSI CMOS image sensors with the introduction of the “T4KA7”, a new 20-megapixel(MP) device with an optical format of 1/2.4 inch.
Mass production shipments start today.

The 20MP resolution of the new sensor puts it in the highest class of CMOS sensors for smartphones and tablets, and ensures display of crisp, detailed images, even when zooming in close with digital zoom.

The sensor’s 1.12 micrometer pixel size supports an optical format of 1/2.4 inch and makes possible the realization of camera modules with a height of 6mm or less for mobile devices.

“T4KA7” employs the same high speed circuit technology used in Toshiba’s latest products[1] which pushes the frame rate to a new high of 22 fps, 1.8 times faster than its previous 20MP sensor[2].

With its new 20MP CMOS image sensor,Toshiba makes it possible for manufacturers to build slimmer smartphones and tablets equipped with higher resolution cameras.
