In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Aptina Introduces 1080p Full HD Mobile Sensor with Gesture Enabling Features for Front Facing Video Applications

Aptina announced today the introduction of the world’s highest performance Full HD mobile sensor with industry leading 60fps/ 1080p video and high dynamic range capability. Aptina’s newest high performing mobile solution, the AR0261, targets OEMs and ODMs designing in high end features to meet the demand for forward facing applications in Smartphones, Tablet PCs and TV monitors. The new 1080p sensor has a 1.4-micron pixel providing outstanding low light performance with incredibly fine detail. This unparalleled performance is enabled by 4th generation Aptina™ MobileHDR™ technology that delivers superior low light performance and best-in-class high dynamic range which enables Smartphones with video capture performance that rivals video cameras regardless of lighting conditions. Furthermore, the fast 60fps frame rate also enables new gesture applications that open up a new way for users to interact with their devices.

The AR0261 captures native 1080P full HD video (16:9 aspect ratio) or 720p HD video at speedy rates of 60fps for smooth video playback, encouraging an immersive viewing experience. Smartphone users running video applications will benefit from the image senor’s built-in video resolution and dynamic range capabilities. MobileHDR technology increases dynamic range to maintain image sharpness and compensate for motion, meaning subjects can sit inside a room with challenging lighting such as a bright window lighting a low light room without having the subjects faces darkened during a video conference chat. The end result is crisp, clear images and videos across varying lighting conditions. Not only is the users’ video experience more pleasing, the sensor employs a new design architecture that enables the fast speed while promoting low power for longer battery life as demanded by most portable electronics.

Additionally, other exciting applications such as gesture recognition and 3-D video capture are possible with AR0261. Accurate gesture recognition can be enabled by the fast frame rate, while Aptina’s 3-D technology synchronizes two AR0261 output data streams to work collaboratively for 3-D. Exclusive front facing applications for 3-D TVs and other devices can be enabled.

“Designers choosing the AR0261 will find new and exciting ways to enable users to interact with their favorite devices,” said Aptina’s Roger Panicacci, VP of Product Development. “Gesture recognition, 3-D and HDR will open a whole new world of personal interaction with these devices.”


The AR0261 is sampling now and will be in production by summer of 2013. Available in die and CSP packaging for OEMs and manufacturers who have their own ISP; this sensor is also available with Aptina’s imaging co-processor for a fully tuned, complete front facing camera solution.

The AR0261 sensor has a 1/6-inch optical format and is targeted for standard 5.5 x 5.5mm modules with low z-heights. The AR0261 is manufactured on the latest 300mm CMOS image sensor process at TSMC producing category leading image sensor performance.
