Samsung Intros 5 MP Camera Sensor, Capacitive Screen Chip
Samsung introduced several more chips today that are meant for use in mobile devices such as phones. First, the S5K4EA is a 5 megapixel system-on-a-chip CMOS sensor that offers auto focus, Xenon flash, mechanical or electronic rolling shutter, and support for high-quality video capture at 30 frames per second. Samsung also announced a new chip that integrates a capacitive touch screen control function in a mobile display drive. Samsung points out that, compared to resistive screens, "capacitive touch screen control technology allows more advanced features such as soft-touch and multi-touch functions." Samsung has used resistive screen technology on many of its mobile devices.
