Exhibits leading autofocus performance while maintaining incredible image quality and simplifying integration into smartphones and tablets















Advanced 13 Mpixel CMOS Image Sensor with SuperPD™ PDAF Technology

Mobile World Congress (MWC) – Barcelona, Spain – Feb. 22, 2016 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON ), driving energy efficiency innovations, has further expanded its portfolio of imaging solutions with the release of its latest high performance CMOS digital image sensor. The AR1337 is a 1/3.2-inch format device with back-side illumination targeted for consumer electronics products such as smartphones and tablet computers. The AR1337 incorporates high performance SuperPD™ phase detect autofocus (PDAF) pixel technology, which delivers focus speeds of 300 ms or less - even in low lighting conditions below 25 lux. Furthermore, by utilizing its on-chip PDAF processing the AR1337 drastically simplifies integration into smartphone platforms and improves camera module integrators throughput from simplified calibration compared to other solutions in the market.

This AR1337 image sensor has an active-pixel array in a 4208 x 3120 pixel arrangement. Building off the success of the company’s proprietary advanced 1.1µm pixel technology, the AR1337 is able to deliver vibrant and realistic image quality with best in class signal-to-noise ratio. Its quantum efficiency reaches up to 82%, providing industry-leading sensitivity. The sensor architecture is designed for low noise to ensure a clean, sharp image. The combination of world-class sensor architecture, advanced pixel design and SuperPD technology delivers a 1/3.2” sensor that performs incredibly well in a form factor that balances great performance, small module height and cost for mainstream and performance smartphones and consumer devices. The AR1337 image sensor is capable of producing full resolution images at rates of up to 30 frames per second (fps) and supports many video modes including 4K video at 30 fps and 1080P-FullHD video at 60 fps. Furthermore, camera synchronization controls enable dual camera video capture.

“Consumers expect increasingly high performance for their smartphone cameras. They demand great image quality, the ability to take photos in lower light conditions and more recently, the desire for lightning fast autofocus,” comments Vladi Korobov, GM and Senior Director of Technology for the Mobile & Consumer Image Sensor at ON Semiconductor. “With the AR1337 we are responding to each of these demands. Not only does it have great image quality, but its SuperPD technology enables OEMs to achieve fastest possible autofocus locking times.”

Availability

The AR1337 is sampling in Bare die format today and is expected to be in mass production in Q2 2016.
