Toshiba Launching Thinnest Ever 13 Megapixel Camera Sensor

Posted March 29, 2013


Toshiba has managed to create the world’s thinnest 13 megapixel camera sensor and will start shipping samples to manufacturers in May. Measuring just 4.7 mm thick, we could see it in Android devices starting this holiday shopping season. As technology advances, so does the size of smartphones and tablets. Having a super thin camera sensor will help to better fit inside the next generation of devices. Toshiba was able to get the camera sensor so small thanks to a dedicated signal processing unit and four plastic lenses. They also used a used a flip chip structure in place of a wire bonded structure. In non-technical terms, it’s incredibly small. Toshiba plans on manufacturing one million of these per month and should cost around $74 USD.
