This is a great teaser and the cameras sound like they have great potential. However, not yet enough information to understand the technology... Pelican's patents must be recent filings (less than 18 months) since I don't see them as pending applications. Even the term "array camera" is unclear in this context: how would the basic camera hardware differ from current mobile phone camera technology? Combined with the growing Instagram application, these new imaging capabilities could be a hit.

My preference would be to have better, larger sensors and optics on board in improve the current picture quality. Light sensitivty and optics, thank you...

Eureka! The article makes much more sense once the photograph at the end uploaded (on a return visit) indicating that this is an "array camera" as in an array of small cameras which can be computationally combined to improve quality and depth perception while also allowing for a thinner phone. [I guess all cameras are some kind of array: linear array, 2D array, etc.] Maybe the reason my internet is so "fast" is that it cheats by selectively leaving out essential images.

And also the noise will be much reduced due to RMS summing. Sounds an excellent idea

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
