Fujitsu offers new camera chip

Japanese electronics conglomerate Fujitsu announced this week the release of a new CMOS image sensor chip designed for adding digital camera functions to cell phones, handheld computers and other portable devices. Camera-equipped phones, which allow people to instantly beam photos to another phone, have become popular in Japan but have yet to make headway in the United States. Fujitsu's MB86S02A measures about 8 millimeters by 7 millimeters, making it one of the smallest image sensors on the market, and can record images with a resolution of 110,000 pixels.
