Aptina Introduces 10-megapixel 1” Format AR1011HS Sensor

Aptina has announced the upcoming release of a new 1” sensor with 10 megapixels and a pixel pitch of 3.4 microns. Like the similarly sized, “CX-format” sensors used in the Nikon 1 J1, J2 and V1 compact system cameras, the Aptina AR1011HS imager is capable of reading full 10MP resolution at 60fps, and enables a variety of video modes, including broadcast quality quad HD, oversampled 1080p for True HD resolution, 1080p video at 120 frames per second, and additional high frame rate modes for slow-motion playback. “The AR1011HS image sensor is a great match for the performance-oriented bridge and mirrorless camera market,” said Sándor Barna, Vice President and General Manager of Aptina’s Consumer Camera business. “Image quality and speed are the two things this market cannot compromise on. Tier-1 OEMs competing in this market are looking for increasingly versatile solutions to meet the demand for speed and performance, and this sensor provides both.” Aptina’s AR1011HS image sensor is currently sampling in limited volumes and will be in mass production in Q1CY13.

Aptina Introduces High Performance Camera Sensor to Bridge and Mirrorless Camera Market

New Aptina Consumer Camera Image Sensor Combines Larger Size with Unique Pixel for Performance and Speed

SAN JOSE, Calif. & COLOGNE, Germany—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Aptina, a global provider of CMOS imaging solutions enabling Imaging Everywhere™, announced today the release of the AR1011HS digital camera image sensor. The new 1-inch optical format sensor is ideal for enabling high quality bridge and mirrorless cameras and targets Tier-1 camera OEMs. The sensor provides 10-megapixel (MP) resolution, 3.4-micron pixels, with Aptina’s DR-Pix™ technology, delivering uncompromised low light and bright light scene image quality. The AR1011HS high-speed sensor architecture is capable of reading full 10MP resolution at 60fps, and enables a variety of video modes, including broadcast quality quad high definition (HD), oversampled 1080p for True HD resolution, 1080p video at 120 frames per second, and additional high frame rate modes for slow motion playback.

“The AR1011HS image sensor is a great match for the performance-oriented bridge and mirrorless camera market,” said Sandor Barna, Vice President and General Manager of Aptina’s Consumer Camera business. “Image quality and speed are the two things this market cannot compromise on. Tier-1 OEMs competing in this market are looking for increasingly versatile solutions to meet the demand for speed and performance, and this sensor provides both.”

Integrating Aptina’s DR-Pix™ technology, the AR1011HS delivers both high-pixel sensitivity for low-light imaging, and high-pixel capacity for bright outdoor scenes. The combination of this outstanding pixel performance and high-speed readout technologies enables fast, vivid broadcast quality video and high-end still image capture quality in a single sensor solution.

The AR1011HS uses Aptina’s advanced 24-lane HiSPi™ High Speed Serial Pixel Interface for fast data transfer. HiSPi is an open access, scalable technology that enables 1080p/120 fps performance (and beyond) and has been adopted by many of Aptina’s business partners to meet the challenges of high-speed, low-power consumption data transfer.

Availability

Aptina’s AR1011HS image sensor is currently sampling in limited volumes and will be in mass production in Q1CY13.

The AR1011HS image sensor will be available for customers to view, by invitation only, during the 2012 Photokina show in Cologne, Germany, September 18-23, 2012.

About DR-Pix Technology

DR-Pix technology combines two modes of operation in one pixel design – low conversion gain mode for large charge handling capacity in bright scenes and a high conversion gain mode with increased sensitivity and low read noise for low-light scenes. The result is a sensor that offers the best possible noise performance over all ISO speed conditions.

  2. We don't need an exclusive supplier, we need more suppliers for all the manufacturer's, and the competition will will be good for the industry as a whole!
