Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) unveils a 13MP, 1.12µm, CMOS image sensor that boasts high-image quality equivalent to a 1.4µm pixel image sensor.

Toshiba's CMOS image sensor integrates back side illumination (BSI) technology and colour noise reduction (CNR) to address both low-light sensitivity and SNR. The CMOS image sensor fits into an 8.5mm x 8.5mm size camera module and boasts high-quality pictures even in low-light conditions.

The Toshiba CMOS image sensor provides approximately 1½ times higher SNR value than a 1.12µm pixel image sensor with no CNR feature allowing manufacturers to deliver products with high-quality imagery, even in low-light conditions, said the company.

Samples of the Toshiba 13MP, 1.12µm CMOS image sensor, part number T4K37, will be available in December 2012. Sample pricing begins at Rs.1,058.20 ($20).
