Samsung Electronics launches'Isocell GN2', an image sensor closer to the human eye
New image sensor with upgraded auto focus function
[Introduction of the case / Reporter Park Yeon-pa] = Samsung Electronics has released a new image sensor called'Isocell GN2' with an upgraded auto focus function.
Isocell GN2 is the first in the industry to apply'Dual Pixel Pro' technology that divides pixels diagonally. Previously, the subject was focused by dividing the pixels into left and right sides, but IsoCell GN2 goes one step further and applies a high-level technology that utilizes the upper and lower phase difference information by dividing some of the pixels diagonally, so that even subjects or backgrounds with many horizontal patterns It provides an enhanced auto focus function.
Isocell GN2 is a '1/1.12 inch' sized mobile image sensor that has 50 million pixels of 1.4㎛ (micrometer, 1 millionth of a meter) integrated. As the pixel size increases by 0.2㎛ compared to the existing GN1, the The area that accepts is increased by about 36%, allowing you to shoot brighter and clearer images.
In addition, IsoCell GN2 supports various pixel modes according to the user environment. When using the Tetra Pixel technology, which combines four pixels into one, it is possible to take 12 million pixels of bright and clear photos in low-light environments, and up to 100 million pixels by applying an intelligent remosaic algorithm that rearranges color pixels and an upscaling technology that improves resolution. It is possible to produce a sophisticated and ultra-high resolution image.
In particular, IsoCell GN2 applied a “staggered HDR” technology that immediately transmits and processes image information received through the sensor to the AP. This technology minimizes the energy required for product use by reducing operating power by about 24% compared to the existing “real-time HDR,” which processes an image by the sensor itself and delivers it to the AP.
In addition, it is equipped with the latest camera technology such as ‘Smart ISO Pro’ and a super slow motion function that can capture high-definition, dynamic FHD video at 480 frames per second or 4K 120 frames per second, allowing high-quality images to be taken anytime, anywhere.
Deok-Hyun Jang, Vice President of Sensor Business Team, System LSI Division of Samsung Electronics said, "Isocell GN2 is a new product that can take not only very precise photos, but also bright and clear photos, and has enhanced auto focus function." It contains all the innovative technologies that can be done.”
