A wafer-level high-definition camera module features an ultra-compact form factor with 720p performance. The Exiguus A15-B1 from Nemotek Technologie incorporates 2-element HD and reflowable wafer-level lenses and provides lower distortion, better resolution and higher image quality while utilizing replicated lenses on glass wafers instead of traditional plastic. This makes the Exiguus A15-B1 suitable for front-facing camera applications in smartphones, tablets, notebooks, gaming systems and other portable devices.

According to recent reports, the percentage of all digital camera owners reporting the importance of HD capabilities almost doubled, from 7.9% in 2009 to 15.1% in 2011. The Exiguus A15-B1 responds to this trend and offers a 1/6-inch 1.26 megapixel, reflowable wafer-level camera solution with an active-pixel array of 1296H x 976V. It incorporates a CMOS image sensor and embedded image processor as well as sophisticated functions such as auto exposure control, auto white balance, flicker avoidance and defect correction.

The Exiguus A15-B1 also features 720p HD video capture at 30 frames per second and offers low light sensitivity in video mode. Additional features of the Exiguus A15-B1 include integrated image processing, automatic image enhancement, Parallel and MIPI data outputs and multi-camera synchronization. The Exiguus A15-B1 can also be directly reflowed onto the printed circuit board (PCB), making system design and manufacturing easier and cost-effective.

By leveraging the benefits of wafer-level technology, the Exiguus A15-B1 can withstand very harsh environmental conditions, making it an attractive solution for existing and new applications requiring cutting-edge camera technology.
