The recent Sony Cx-News vol. 56 magazine is almost entirely devoted to new image sensor products.
IMX045PQ/IMX046PQ/IMX060PQ family of CMOS sensors is based on new 1.4um pixels and targeted to cellular phones.
IMX045PQ has diagonal of 4.5 mm (Type 1/4) 5.15M effective pixels with frame rate of 22.5fps.
IMX046PQ has a diagonal of 5.76 mm (Type 1/3.2) 8.11M effective pixels with frame rate of 15fps.
IMX060PQ has a diagonal of 7.1 mm (Type 1/2.5) 12.25M effective pixels with 10fps frame rate.
Whole family supports 720p and 1080p HD video with 27-30fps rate and has 2-lane MIPI interface.
The new camera phone modules IU046F and IU060F are based on 8MP and 12MP 1.4um sensors. They feature 4-element/4-group plastic lens with piezoelectric AF actuator:
New series of ICX667/ICX677 CCDs has 1.55um pixels. It is an incremental shrink of the previous generation having 1.68um pixels. The 1/2.3-inch CCDS have 12MP resolution and offer 720p 30fps HD video.
Yet another IMX035LQR 1.39MP 1/3-inch CMOS sensor is intended for high speed industrial applications. It achieves 120fps frame rate at full resolution.
