Magnachip Announces 1.3MP Sensor

Yahoo: Magnachip announced HD-ready SXGA (1280x1024) resolution raw Bayer output image sensor. MC515ER sensor is made in 0.13um process, its pixel size is not mentioned. The speed is 30fps at HD resolution. It has low-EMI parallel and SMIA-compatible CCP2 interfaces.

The sensor is said to have high QE and low read noise to enable "a Signal to Noise ratio (SNR) that is over 15 dB better than the performance available for typical sensors in the market today." I think Magnachip meant DR, rather than SNR here.

The samples are available now. The MC515ER will be in mass production in the first half of 2008.
