Mobile CMOS Image Sensor Comparison 2019: Comprehensive Technical and Cost Evaluation of the Main OEM Choices - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 22, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2019--

The “Mobile CMOS Image Sensor Comparison 2019” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This overview will give you a comprehensive technical and cost evaluation of the main OEM choices.

The author has conducted a comprehensive technical and cost evaluation of CMOS Image Sensors in leading flagships sold in 2018. Discover the comparative study to provide insights into the structure and technology of 28 CIS die in seven flagship smartphones from several major brands: the Apple iPhone X; Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus; Huawei P20 Pro; Huawei Mate 20 Pro; Xiaomi Mi8 Explorer Version; Oppo Find X; and Vivo X21UD. This report is connected to the authors Mobile Camera Module Comparison 2019 report, which gives an overview and details about the structure of each camera module.

The report has shown that the four manufacturers of CIS presented in the flagships, Sony, Samsung, Omnivision and STMicroelectronics, have totally different approaches. For example, Sony is the only manufacturer using hybrid bonding in the analyzed devices, having completely dropped fusion bonding with Through-Silicon Vias (TSVs). The author has extracted further technical choices from the four players from the analysis and comparisons.

The report analyzes the CIS dies integrated in rear and front-facing CMOS Camera Modules (CCMs) including main cameras, wide angle, telephoto and near global shutter infrared, from technology node to die size. Additionally, we have studied the costs of the CISs to compare the economic choices of the manufacturers.
