Primed for deployment in smartphones, tablets, and other battery-powered devices that require extremely low power consumption, the eight-Mpixel T4KA3 CMOS image sensor delivers high-definition video (HDV) recording at 240 fps. Targeting midrange smartphones, tablets, and action cameras with 720p resolution, the T4KA3 operates at 15% lower power and is significantly smaller in area than the company's previous eight-Mpixel sensor. It also features Bright Mode technology, which boosts image brightness by up to four times. According to the company, Bright Mode enables users to continuously record and play back at an fps rate twice that achievable without Bright Mode. Other features include High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology that takes multiple pictures at different exposure levels and intelligently stitches them together. Sample shipments of the T4KA3 CMOS image sensor are under way. Sample price is under $12 each.
