The new pixel sensitivity is said to be the highest in the industry at 3,230e-/lx/sec/sq.um. Panasonic claims it has improved S/N ratio by a factor of two. A "light-concentrating structure" improves the new pixel's color reproducibility and angular response.
Another three new features of the sensor, as quoted by Tech-On:
- high-sensitivity photo diode: wide, deep photo diodes in small pixels
- microfabrication technology, which reduces parasitic capacitance for improving the sensitivity of in-pixel amplifier and reducing the noise of transistor
- optimal matching design technology for the lens of camera module and the light-concentrating structure developed by Panasonic
