Advasense has announced what they claim is the world's smallest 5MP autofocus camera module. The module, which was developed with the help of Creative Sensor Inc., uses a technology called Feedback Controlled Pixels (FCP) to reduce image lag and noise within the tiny sensor. The new moduled, the ASIO 5, is designed for mobile phones but looks ideal for robotics use. The sensor provides a maximum resolution of 2592x1944 at 15 FPS, HD 1080p at 30 FPS, or 720p at 60 FPS. The output is Bayer RGB data (for the ASIO5) or RGB and YUV (for the ASIO5I). Both MIPI and SMIA serial output is provided as well as a parallel output and an I2C control interface. In addition to autofocus, the module also provides built-in image stabilization. For more details see the full specification. No word on quantity or single unit pricing but most mobile phone components are designed to be as inexpensive as possible.
