18 September 2012 CMOSIS develops cmos image sensor for new Leica camera CMOSIS develops cmos image sensor for new Leica camera CMOSIS has developed a high resolution cmos image sensor for Leica, which will be incorporated in the new Leica M digital camera. The Leica MAX 24MP cmos sensor features 24megapixels across an active sensor area of 36 x 24mm², corresponding to the full frame 35mm format. The custom designed sensor chip, counting 6,000 x 4,000pixels on a 6 x 6µm² grid across the active area is made by STMicroelectronics using 300mm wafers with its IMG175 CIS technology. "This is the first time that a cmos image sensor for a 35mm high end camera was designed, and is manufactured, in Europe for a European customer," said Guy Meynants, cto at CMOSIS. "Apart from the ceramic ic package, the Leica MAX 24MP cmos sensor is a 100% European product."
