Samsung's ISOCELL unveiled, image sensor for premium mobile devices

Samsung unveils its ISOCELL technology, a new image sensor for 'premium' mobile devices (KRX:005930)

Samsung has chosen today to unveil its new imaging sensor technology dubbed ISOCELL. ISOCELL, according to Samsung, will substantially increase light sensitivity by "controlling the absorption of electrons," which will help in low light conditions.

How does this even work? Were you like me, lost at the "controlling the absorption of electrons" bit, too? Well, Samsung says that BSI (Back Side Illumination) is very limited in how much it can affect your pictures in low light conditions, whereas ISOCELL has a barrier between each and every pixel. This will reportedly cut electrical crosstalk by up to 30%.

 

Not only that, but ISOCELL will also allow a wider field of light absorption so that the camera module can be thinner. We should begin to see ISOCELL-based devices toward the end of the year.
