SMaL Camera Announces 1.3-Megapixel Design

2/04/2003 10:15:00 AM Eastern

Cambridge, Mass. - OEM camera designer, SMaL Camera Technologies, announced a new digital imaging kit yesterday that will enable manufacturers to create the world's thinnest 1.3-megapixel, CMOS-based digital cameras.

SMaL's previous camera design, adopted by Fujifilm, Logitech, RadioShack and Oregon Scientific, was for a VGA camera that measured 6mm thick. According to SMaL, the company delivered more than a half a million of these kits in 2002.

The new Ultra-Pocket 1.3-megapixel kit includes SMaL's proprietary 1.3-megapixel CMOS imager with Autobrite technology, ASIC controller, lithium-polymer rechargeable battery, taking lens, viewfinder, and complete camera reference design.

The Ultra-Pocket 1.3-Megapixel kit enables the same credit card size of its predecessor, with only a slight increase in thickness due to higher resolution optics. The new design will add features, such as a strobe flash and an SD card slot for expanded memory storage.

The kit also features SMaL's proprietary low-power technology and lithium-polymer rechargeable battery. This combination allows consumers to take hundreds of pictures on a single charge and then recharge the battery automatically each time the camera is connected to a PC or Mac via USB cable, rather than replace batteries.
