Omnivision is Readying 1.8um Pixel Sensor

EETimes: Omnivision is readying a new 3.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor in a quarter-inch format that will incorporate “instant focus” capabilities for camera phones. The device, to be marketed under the “OmniFocus” brand name, enables an “instant focus” function for mobile camera phones in full resolution at 15 frames per second.
The product is a two-component solution, including a module and digital signal processor (DSP). The solution is in the early prototyping stage, with shipments slated for the second half.
The “instant focus” feature is based on wavefront coding technology from CDM Optics Inc. (Boulder, Colo.), a company that was acquired by OmniVision last year.
