Two 1/4 inch 5M pixel 1.4 µm CMOS image sensors: TCM9518MD

The TCM9518MD camera module incorporates two 1/4-inch 5M-pixel CMOS image sensors, making it suitable for smartphone and tablet PC applications. The distance between the camera and objects can be calculated by using the TCM9518MD in combination with a dedicated companion LSI. As a result, distance information can be provided as depth data, which allows you to create new features together with application software. For example, it is possible to realize a focus adjustment feature and objects extraction after images are captured. The resolution enhancement feature available with the companion LSI makes it possible to improve the output resolution to approximately the same level as 13M-pixel smartphone cameras. As a result, it is possible to realize smartphones that are thinner than those with a 13M-pixel camera but offer comparable resolution.
