Aptina launches 14MP CMOS sensor with 1080p video Aptina Imaging, "the CMOS imaging leader," has announced today the launch of a 14MP CMOS image sensor for mobile phones, one that can handle recording at 1080p/60fps.
The sensor, the 1.4-micron MT9F011 includes "low power consumption, a four-lane MIPI® data interface (configurable as single, dual or quad lane), Bayer resample for improved video, 1/2.3” optical format, and 25 degree chief ray angle to minimize module height."

Adds Farshid Sabet, Aptina General Manager, Mobile Business Unit: "Aptina continues to enable imaging everywhere. In an increasingly video-centric world, the availability of the MT9F011 and its full HD video combined with unparalleled pixel performance and sensor functionality enables our customers to deliver new and differentiated video products faster. Based on recent interest and design-in activity, the MT9F011 sensor positions us to leverage our strength and capitalize on new opportunities."

The company says samples are currently available and mass production expected in the Q2.

The dimensions of the image might be 1080P, but I'm sure the video quality still won't be as good as a 1980's micro-VHS handicam.
