Samsung Announces 0.9um Pixel Sensor for Smartphones, More

BusinessWire: Samsung introduces two new ISOCELL sensors: 1.28 μm 12MP Fast 2L9 with Dual Pixel technology, and ultra-small 0.9μm 24Mp Slim 2X7 with Tetracell technology.

The Fast 2L9 features reduced pixel size from the previous Dual Pixel sensor’s 1.4μm to 1.28μm.

At 0.9μm, the Slim 2X7 is said to be the first sensor in the industry with pixel size below 1.0μm. The pixel uses improved ISOCELL technology with deeper DTI that reduces color crosstalk and expands the full-well capacity to hold more light information. In addition, the small 0.9μm pixel size enables a 24Mp image sensor to be fitted in a thinner camera module.

The Slim 2X7 is also features Tetracell technology. Tetracell improves performance in low-light situations by merging four neighboring pixels to work as one to increase light sensitivity. In bright environments, Tetracell uses a re-mosaic algorithm to produce full resolution images. This enables consumers to use the same front camera to take photos in various lighting conditions.

Samsung ISOCELL Fast 2L9 and ISOCELL Slim 2X7 are new image sensors that fully utilize Samsung’s advanced pixel technology, and are highly versatile as they can be placed in both front and rear of a smartphone,” said Ben K. Hur, VP of System LSI Marketing at Samsung.
