Toshiba Declares 13 Super Pixel, 1.12 Micrometer, CMOS Picture Indicator With Shade Disturbance Decrease That Enhances Picture Quality

Company's new CMOS image sensor created with on-circuit color noise reduction decreases pixel noise and improves image excellent on cellular phones, cellular devices

Toshiba The united states Electronic Elements, Inc. (TAEC)*, a dedicated innovator that works with technological advancement companies to create cutting-edge styles, declared a new 13 mega pixel, 1.12 micrometer, CMOS image sensor providing high-image excellent comparative to a 1.4 micrometer pixel image sensor. Toshiba applied back side lighting (BSI) technological advancement and incorporated color noise reduction (CNR) to develop its latest CMOS image sensor that suits into an 8.5mm x 8.5mm dimension camera component and allows high-quality images even in low-light circumstances.
"As mobile devices like smartphones and tablets get smaller and thinner, the pixel size of image sensors needs to shrink accordingly," said Andrew Burt, vice president of the Analog and Imaging Business Unit, System LSI Group at TAEC. "However, the miniaturization of pixel size reduces the amount of light entering into the pixel which impacts image quality. Toshiba addresses the challenge of pixel miniaturization with its newest CMOS image sensor."

The miniaturization of pixel dimension effects performance of mild understanding and indication to noise rate (SNR) in modern 1.12 micrometer pixel image receptors. BSI technological advancement helps improve understanding, but fails to provide on increasing image excellent. Utilizing its advancement and technological advancement skills, Toshiba developed its latest CMOS image sensor with BSI and CNR incorporated on the sensor to address both low-light understanding and SNR. As a result, the Toshiba CMOS image sensor provides roughly 1 ½ times higher SNR value1 than a 1.12 micrometer pixel image sensor with no CNR feature enabling producers to provide products with high-quality visuals, even in low-light circumstances.

Pricing and Availability

Samples of the Toshiba 13 mega pixel, 1.12 micrometer CMOS image sensor, part number T4K37, will be available in December 2012. Sample pricing begins at $20.00 (U.S.). For more information go to:

New Criss-Crossing Tape Sculptures From Megan Geckler's

On show at the The state of utah Art gallery of Modern Art until Feb 23 are Megan Geckler's new site-specific installations designed with her trademark content - flagging tape. Using cautious statistical computations, she changes the space with shiny jolts of shade. The show, named“No chance to move backwards and see,” attracts from geometrical illusionism and concepts of style. Not only will guests get to see several of her flip sculptural performs, they'll also come experience to deal with with her wonderful weaved walls painting.

The Diving Horses of Atlantic City

For nearly half a century, Atlantic City, in New Jersey, United States, was home to an attraction almost too fantastical to believe—an apparently fearless horse with a young woman on its back would leap off a tower some 40 feet high into a pool of water below. The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.

Staggering Photos Capture the Otherworldly Beauty of Antarctica's Icebergs

Tokyo-based nature and untamed life photographic artist Martin Bailey catches the powerful excellence of Antarctica in this enthralling photograph arrangement. While the frozen continent is home to numerous seals and penguins, Bailey decided to photo the clearing scene without any indications of life, rather concentrating on the merciless and ethereal excellence of 1,000-year-old ice shelves and glaciers.
