New Sony 1/2.3-inch 10.3Mpixel 50 frame/s Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensor

ISSCC published the Advance 2010 Program which contains some interesting new sensor developments news:

1/2.3-inch 10.3Mpixel 50frame/s CMOS image sensor fabricated using a 0.13μm 1P4M CMOS process with back-illumination technology achieves sensitivity of 9890e-/lux·s, random noise of 1.7e- and saturation of 8850e-. The sensor integrates a 10b/12b analog-to-digital converter, an internal PLL and a 10b serial LVDS interface to enable a data-rate up to 576MHz.

I can imagine the sensor to find his use in future Sony camcorders.
