Sony IU233N2-Z and IU233N5-Z — the smallest camera modules with resolution of 1 MP
Upscaling is not the only direction of development of image sensors and camera modules for mobile devices. You can work on reducing size, exemplified by the modules IU233N2-Z and IU233N5-Z, presented by Sony. According to the manufacturer, Sony IU233N2-Z and IU233N5-Z — the smallest camera modules with resolution of 1 MP (1296 x 816 pixel).
The dimensions of the modules without considering the trail is 2.6 × 3,3 × 2,32 mm. Refine that the module consists of a sensor image format 1/10,49 inch (diagonal active area — 1,72 mm) and a lens with a diagonal field angle of 80.7°. In addition to miniaturization, the advantages of modules include a low power consumption. The evaluation of Sony, in a power saving mode the power consumption is 10-60% less than existing modules such permission. When shooting video at full resolution with a frequency of 60 K/s power consumption is approximately equal to 55 mW, with a frequency of 15 fps — 22 mW and a frequency of 3 K/s and 8 mW. Module Sony IU233N2-Z — color, IU233N5-Z — monochrome.
In the areas of application of the new modules is named wearable head displays and smart watches.
