New patent discloses a honeycomb image sensor


The new form of the photodiodes should improve the sensor performance. With that design less transistors are needed and as a consequence you can have more megapixels. We don’t know if it really works and if we will ever see such a sensor in a real camera!

* Patent Publication No. 2010-161200
* published 2010/07/22. Filled 2009/01/08
* Distance of the pixel is equal with all courses in the case of a honeycomb
* Less number of transistors used
* Low cost
* It can increase the number of the pixels
* Good sensitivity
* It assumes seven pixels one unit
