Product Overview

■Camera module “CA378-AOIS-V2”

Compared to the existing "CA378-AOIS" (equipped with Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (SSS) 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor IMX378(*)), the brightness (F value) of the lens of the new product has been increased from 2.0 to 1.8, enabling photography in low light conditions. At the same time, the response speed of autofocus (AF) has been increased by changing the actuator.
