Eastman Kodak Co. has launched two CMOS image sensors for camera phone and consumer digital still cameras. The KAC-3100 3.1-megapixel and the KAC-5000 5.0-megapixel sensors feature proprietary Pixelux technology, including pinned photodiodes and 4T4S architecture. Both offer selectable charge-domain binning for high sensitivity in low-light conditions, and both undergo a thin copper metal manufacturing process for improved optical angle response and high quantum efficiency. They operate in subsampling and region-of-interest windowing modes for custom readouts. Programming is via an I2C-compatible serial interface with dedicated strobe flash synchronization. Both models feature progressive programmable scan, an electronic rolling shutter, and digital video output with flip and mirror output options. The KAC-3100 operates at 10 to 48 MHz and the KAC-5000, at 10 to 36 MHz.
