Mobile technology evolves in unstoppable form and one of the points that manufacturers have more in mind when it comes to finding new developments and advances is photography, as this has become in one of the essential elements When it comes to bring to market a phone on sale.
Sony, as much as their own phones manufacturer as a supplier of sensors for other companies, continues to work on new elements which improve the user photographic experience and now have gone up even more the level with a new CMOS sensor that incorporates its own DRAM.
Advantages of DRAM on the sensor
DRAM (dynamic RAM) is a type of data storage high speed which until today was associated with devices such as computer processors, but Sony has found a way to transfer that technology to photo sensors to give them of increased speed of reading.
The DRAM of this new three-layer BSI CMOS sensor is of 1-Gigabit (approximately 125 MB) and is located between pixels BSI structure and coating of circuit that handles the processing of the signal, so the data can be read and be processed much faster.
Reading data is performed four times faster that conventional sensors
Specifically, Sony specifies can register 19.3 million pixels in just 1/129 fraction of a second, compared with conventional sensors requiring 1/30 split second, by what we would be talking about a speed four times. Also sensor 21.2 megapixels is capable of recording 4 K to 60 FPS or 240 FPS for Full HD video.
Super slow motion
Another advantage you get incorporating DRAM to the sensor is able to capture slow motion at 1,000 fps even in resolutions 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), by what we would be talking of a slow super recording so far not seen in any mobile device’s camera.
At the moment is everything Sony has revealed about this new component that so it is sensed, can revolutionize the Mobile photography market but touch wait to find out if the Japanese company will incorporate it in their next terminals or some other companies flagship integrate it into your photographic equipment.
