Sharp today announced the RJ63YC100, a new back-illuminated CMOS camera sensor for devices such as smartphones that comes in a slim package at 5.7mm thick. The small size will help the sensor fit better into thin devices. The sensor rates 12.1 megapixels, can capture 1080p HD video, includes optical image stabilization and autofocus, and has a lens speed rating of f/2.5. Samples of the camera module will be available starting December 2. The chip will go into production in January.
