Sony Corporation has announced the development of  35mm full size (diagonal:43.3mm/Type 2.7) 24.81 effective megapixel, CMOS image sensor. This "ultra high-speed" sensor according to Sony will be able to capture and download 6.3 frames per second at the full resolution. The new sensor will also have a field of view similar to what is found on a 35mm film camera.

Major features:

    * 1)High picture quality in 35mm full size image sensor with 24.81M effective pixels

    * 2)"Column-Parallel A/D Conversion method" achieves high S/N and high-speed imaging

          o ·CDS/PGA(24dB)Circuit (PGA: Programmable Gain Amplifier)

          o ·12bit-AD Converter on chip

          o ·Diversified readout mode

          o ·All-pixel scan mode 6.3 frame/s (12bit)

          o ·Window readout

    * 3)High-speed digital output(12 channel parallel LVDS output)
