Sharp Fits OIS, AF, F2.5 Optics and 12MP BSI Sensor into 5.47mm-High Module

Sharp announces a 12.1MP, 1/3.2-inch CMOS camera module with optical image stabilization and autofocus that features the industry’s thinnest profile - 5.47 mm in height. The new RJ63YC100 is intended for use in mobile devices such as smartphones. Sample shipments will begin from December 2, 2011, volume production from January 10, 2012.

The 11.0 (W) x 11.0 (L) x 5.47 (H) mm module has F2.5 lens with horisontal viewing angle of 61 deg. The module supports 1080p video through 4-lane MIPI interface.


  1. Anyone knows what OIS technology is inside? This seems much too small to hold a VCM-based OIS

  2. Check out T-Lens from poLight

  3. How do you know if it's not a LensVector technology?

  4. Could be Cambridge Mechatronics

  5. How about the image sensor itself? Is there any information on the manufacturer and part #?

  6. poLight and LensVector only have 1/4" lens. Sharp module is 1/3.2".

  7. poLight's TLens offers some crucial advantages to the camera module market thanks to its extremely small size (4.2mm x 4.2mm x 0,5mm), while achieving high optical quality (megapixel independent and HD compatible).

    For these features, the TLens is using materials that are capable of passing all reflowability test requirements. Combined with its extremely low power technology, the TLens is the ideal solution for the latest camera phone applications such as videos with continuous-autofocus.

    TLens key features

    High image quality : >95% transmittance, Megapixel independent and HD video compatible
    Smallest Autofocus in the market : 4.2 x 4.2 x 0.5 mm
    Very Fast response time : <1ms
    Energy efficient : 1mw
    Re-flowable : 260°C, (high heat resistance allows automatic reflow soldering on PCB)
