Sony Describes 1.75um Sensor Generation

Vol. 54 of Sony Semiconductor's quarterly magazine CX-News presented 3MP, 5MP and 8MP CMOS sensors based on 1.75um pixels.

The whole family is targeted to camera phone applications. 3MP IMX029 and IMX058 differ by the interface type: IMX029 has serial interface while IMX058 has parallel one. 5MP IMX034 and 8MP IMX043 have conflicting data on their interface: the header claims they use parallel one, while later in the text both are mentioned as having serial sub-LVDS interfaces. 8MP IMX043 is able to operate at 15fps speed at full resolution.

The sensors use 0.14um 1P4M Cu process, which allowed for an increase in chief ray angle, as compared with the 2.5um ancestor pixel.
