Aptina AR2520HS brings 25MP photos, 4K video and full field-of-view
120 fps 1080p HD video to mobile devices
BARCELONA, Spain & SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Aptina, a global provider of intelligent imaging solutions, will
demonstrate the industry’s first 25 megapixel mobile image sensor at
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. The Aptina AR2520HS leaps
ahead of existing sensors with high-performance video capabilities that
capture full resolution and 4K video at 30 frames-per-second, as well as
delivers super slow motion capture of 120 frames-per-second for 1080p HD
video all without sacrificing full field-of-view. Coupled with stunning
still photo clarity and Aptina MobileHDR™ (Mobile High Dynamic Range)
technology support for great images in challenging environments, the
AR2520HS creates an ultra-high-performance category for smartphones and
The AR2520HS’s advanced BSI (Back Side Illumination), 1/2-inch optical
format increases the light capture area by 88% over traditional 1/3-inch
mobile image sensors, ensuring a richer image for mobile device users.
To ensure high-speed processing of full resolution video and still
images, the AR2520HS uniquely outputs multi-gigabit data streams via
both 8 lane MIPI® (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) and 12 lane
HiSPi™ (High-Speed Pixel Interface). Compatability with existing Aptina
18 megapixel (AR1820HS) lens designs ensures that mobile OEMs and camera
module makers can more rapidly design the AR2520HS into new devices.
“The momentum in the camera market has shifted emphatically from digital
still cameras to mobile devices. The market for image sensors in the
mobile device segment was $4.9 billion in 2012, and is forecast to grow
to $8.7 billion in 2017, and Aptina’s AR2520HS sensor is designed for
this segment,” said Brian O'Rourke, senior principal analyst of consumer
electronics at IHS.
“The AR2520HS offers an astounding full field-of-view 120
frames-per-second slow motion capture. To further enhance the
experience, this is coupled with our MobileHDR technology to ensure
amazing mixed-light performance,” said Sandor Barna, Chief Technology
Officer at Aptina. “Aptina, with this ultra-high-performance sensor, is
delivering the full camera experience into mobile phones and tablets.”
The Aptina AR2520HS will be available for sampling in the second quarter
