Although the concept of backside detectors is not new, OmniVision would be the first to create a mass-produced sensor if we can believe their claim to be sampling next month. This technology offers many performance advantages over conventional sensors that will be obvious to those in the field. Part of what is enabling this is the proliferation of SOI technology through Soitec and its sister company Tracit Technology. This idea may not be novel in Junko's definition, but this requirement would exclude most production devices from the news. Consider the laser. The first working prototype was demonstrated in 1960, but that did not make the first compact disc players any less exciting to consumers (or the media). Parts Search
