Samsung har netop annonceret deres nye teknologi, ICOCELL, der er en pixel-knologi der sørger for bedre billeder i lav belysning.
Ifølge Samsung vil den nye teknologi kunne kontrollere hvor meget elektron(er) der skal absorveres (jeps, du læste rigtigt), og reducere støj på billeder med op til 30%.
“This new technology substantially increases light sensitivity and effectively controls the absorption of electrons, resulting in higher color fidelity even in poor lighting conditions. ISOCELL improves the image quality and enhances the user experience of premium smartphones and tablets that integrate sensors with this exciting new technology.
The quality of an image sensor is determined by the amount of light that is accurately captured by the individual pixels within the sensor array. With the market pressure to increase camera resolution and image quality, without growing the camera size, the pixels have had to shrink, while improving their performance at the same time – a challenging task.
To meet this challenge, previous sensor technology developments focused on improving the light absorption of each pixel, and have progressed pixel technology from FSI (Front Side Illumination) to BSI (Back Side Illumination) which places photodiode at the top to maximize photoelectric efficiency. While being very effective at the time, this BSI technology also faced limitations in improving image quality as pixel sizes continued to decrease”.
Samsung begynder allerede nu at implementere den nye teknologi i deres produkter. Teknologien er til “premium smartphones” der bruger 8MP og derover.
