With its new ISOCELL Plus technology, Samsung is enhancing the colour accuracy and sharpness of mobile photos. This technology allows CMOS image sensors to capture more light, significantly increasing light sensitivity and color fidelity.
CMOS sensors should hold as much light or photons and transmit the right colour information to the photodiode for taking high-quality photographs. This was introduced in 2013 by ISOCELL technology. In 2018, enhancing this technology, Samsung pushes pixel isolation technology through an optimized pixel architecture. For ISOCELL Plus, Samsung replaced the metal barrier with an innovative new material developed by Fujifilm, minimizing optical loss and light reflection.
The new ISOCELL Plus delivers higher colour fidelity along with up to a 15-percent enhancement in light sensitivity. The technology also enables image sensors to equip 0.8-micrometer (µm) and smaller-sized pixels without any loss in performance, making it an optimal solution for developing super-resolution cameras with over 20-megapixels.
