Last week, Aptina released two new image sensors, the models were AR1011HS and AR1820HS. The AR1011HS is a 1.0-inch CX-format CMOS sensor, while the AR1820HS is a 1/2.3 inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor.

In addition, the AR1011HS sensor is with 10 million pixels, the unit pixel size is 3.4 microns, with its unique DR-Pix technology it can provide 60fps continuous shooting, 120f/ s 1080p HD video recording and slow motion playback functions. The AR1820HS is a 18 million pixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, combined with the A-PixHS technology, it can provide users with efficient, high-quality and low-noise imaging results. In the 18 million pixel mode, the continuous shooting speed is approximately 24/s, when reduce to 14 million pixels (aspect ratio: 16:9), the continuous shooting speed can be raised to 30/s, and it can provide high-quality high-definition video recording function. It is an image sensor positioned in the portable digital cameras and camera.
