Samsung is the primary in lots of niches as a result of it not solely designs finish merchandise but additionally manufactures numerous elements. Even its closest rivals are its largest purchasers. This doesn’t imply it has no equals within the semiconductor market. Vice versa, in lots of classes, the Korean producer nonetheless yields its rivals. Say, by way of digicam sensors, the Japanese Sony is an unreachable chief. And although Samsung’s lenses are on many merchandise, Sony nonetheless wins the race. Nonetheless, this will change quickly. Right this moment, Samsung introduced the trade’s first 0.64-micrometer picture sensor, the 50-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL JN1. The latter comes with the newest pixel applied sciences corresponding to enhanced ISOCELL 2.0, Good ISO and Double Tremendous PDAF. On account of them, the JN1 can seize extra vivid pictures on the trade’s smallest 50Mp cellular sensor.
“Samsung’s superior pixel applied sciences have as soon as once more pushed boundaries with the utmost precision to develop a picture sensor with the trade’s smallest pixel measurement, but with highly effective efficiency. The brand new ISOCELL JN1 at 0.64μm will be capable to equip tomorrow’s sleekest smartphones with ultra-high decision cellular images,” mentioned Duckhyun Chang, government vice chairman of the sensor enterprise at Samsung Electronics. “As we drive our dedication to innovation in pixel applied sciences, we are going to proceed to carry a variety of cellular picture sensor choices to the market.”
New Applied sciences Used In ISOCELL JN1
Properly, one of many largest highlights of the ISOCELL JN1 is the ISOCELL 2.Zero know-how. It comes with improved mild sensitivity by round 16%. When capturing in low-light environments, the CMOS makes use of Samsung’s 4-to-1 pixel binning know-how, dubbed Tetrapixel, to merge 4 adjoining 0.64μm-pixels into one huge 1.28μm-pixel. With this, it quadruples mild sensitivity. The small 1/2.76-inch sensor may also cut back the peak of the digicam module by round 10%. In different phrases, it's a lot slimmer and received’t have an effect on smartphones look.
Due to this know-how, the ISOCELL JN1 essentially the most versatile picture sensor but from Samsung. This sensor can be suitable with current 1/2.8-inch merchandise. So it may be used for front-facing, ultra-wide or telephoto cameras, along with commonplace huge digicam choices. Merely put, the ISOCELL JN1 can turn into the world’s strongest selfie digicam sensor that takes 50Mp decision images. Plus, it's able to recording 4K movies at 60 frames-per-second or full HD at 240fps.
This sensor additionally comes with Good ISO for enhanced dynamic vary. This new know-how modifications the conversion acquire primarily based on the setting’s illumination stage. The ISOCELL JN1 integrates improved Double Tremendous PD that makes the auto-focus quicker. Double Tremendous PD has twice the density of pixels (1/16) used for part detection than Tremendous PD (1/32).
The Samsung ISOCELL JN1 is at the moment in mass manufacturing.
