New Sony IMX230 Camera Sensor Found in Motorola Moto X Style

A topic of great interest for many of our readers is Sonys mobile ambitions and how that plays into the companys image sensor business. Just recently, it was revealed that Sony would be investing $4 billion into that division. Following that news, Sony revealed a new partnership with Japanese robotics firm ZMP to create Aerosens, a new drone company.

While odd at first, Sonys ambitions are clear; to create a compelling drone with stellar optics that are powered by the companies image sensors. In short, while Aerosens will be a fully functional company with its own path and vision for drones, the true goal of the company is to showcase Sonys sensor technology and sell it to much larger players like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Parrot, Lockheed Martin, and DJI.Now comes news that Motorola, a competitor of Sony Mobile, will be using the companys latest camera sensor, one that even Sony itself isnt using in their smartphone line.

Announced earlier this morning, the Motorola Moto X Style is the newest flagship smartphone that offers21 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture, 1.1 micron 1/2.

4-inch sensor, Phase Detect Auto-Focus (PDAF) and 1080p/4K video HDR.This new 21-megapixel sensor is actually powered by the Sony IMX230 camera sensor. The Xperia Z3/Z4, the latest Sony flagship smartphone currently utilizes the Sony IMX220 though if a new flagship smartphone is on the way from Sony as rumored have pointed out, dont be surprised if they also use the IMX230.

While some, including former Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer, have called for Sony to keep their technology to themselves and not let it power competitors devices, the reality of the landscape is far different. Sony cannot afford to keep this technology to themselves when they are making billions from their competitors. While it would be an exclusive feature for Sony to keep, the truth is that image sensors are only part of the puzzle.

Apple famously uses Sonys older 8-megapixel sensor yet photos from the iPhone 6 tend to rival, if not flat out beat photos from Android devices that carry cameras with two or three times the megapixel count.Even if Sony was able to replicate the photo quality of its competitors in its mobile line, the reason consumers pick a certain device is never hinged upon a single feature. For that reason, Sony till now has lost the mobile market and while they could keep technologies like the IMX230 camera sensor exclusive to their mobile division which sells around 40 million units a year, they are instead selling hundreds of millions of these sensors to their competitors and in turn, fueling the company.

Now this doesnt mean that Sony is somehow on purpose piecing together devices for themselves that cant compete. If fact, the reason youre not finding the IMX230 in the current Xperia lineup is likely due to the fact that by the time they launched, Sony still hadnt finished this image sensor. Samsung who is a fierce competitor of Apple, no matter if their mobile division is doing good or poorly continues to supply Apple when they can because its just good business, thanks to the volume of devices Apple sells.

In this case, no matter if a consumer picks up an Xperia smartphone or one from Motorola, Sony stands to make a profit which is good business.Discuss:Do you think its wise for Sony to power its competitors devices?[Via XperiaBlog].

RELATED QUESTION What is the working principle of an electric motor ? An electric motor uses the attraction and repulsion of magnetic fields to produce motion. The simplest is the permanent magnet motor.

A simplified version is shown below.Placing a coil of wire inside a permanent magnetic field and fixed so it can freely rotate. Pass a current through the coil of wire and it will rotate to the perpendicular position.

Now reverse the current flow and the coil will spin 180 degrees. The brushes and the commutator does the switching directions of the current through the coil at the appropriate moment to keep the coil rotating in one direction. This is the basics of all electric motors.

Flemings left hand rule above describes the relationship between the main magnetic field. The current flowing in the coil and the direction of the movement or forceNow we can use electronics to do the switching instead of the commutator and brushes. These motors are called Brushless DC motors.

Larger motors require a stronger magnetic field and more electrical ,power to drive it faster and with more torque. Stronger magnetic fields are created by electromagnets. AC motors use induction from the stationary windings to create the second magnetic field in the rotor.

That induces currents in the rotor and these currents have their own magnetic field which interact ( repel and attract) with the main magnetic field to make the rotor rotate

Make a Motorized Camera Gimbal for $60
Inspired by a member of his photo and film club with cerebral palsy, Tadej Strah decided to make a gimbal to automatically keep a small camera level.Interesting mechanical elements of this build include a handle normally used for an angle grinder, and two hobby servos mounted on bent pieces of metal to control the leveling axes. Motion sensing is accomplished via an MPY-6050 sensor, and an Arduino Mega provides processing power for the assembly. You can see it at 2:30 in the video here rotating around in the mirror on its own or at 3:10 on a ski slope. Though its not yet perfect, Strahs goal was to keep things both simply and inexpensively. Its a really neat accomplishment, especially considering he estimates it could be constructed for around $60. RELATED QUESTION What is the working principle of an electric motor ?

You wind up with a Fermi problem for your calculation. That is, you take all your best guesses, and work them together; the more factors you have an educated guess about, the more likely your high guesses will balance out your low guesses, and you'll end up with something approximating the right answer.Even then, that's not going to get you a lot of data points here. Here's how it would go for me:Number of motorcyclists I know (100)Number of motorcyclists I know that ride with a camera (2)Based on that, I'd estimate 2% of motorcyclists ride with a camera. That's not great data to go on, though, partly because I'm only vaguely certain about the second number. But it passes the "sniff test" and seems reasonable. What else could you factor in to arrive at a number?Other factors you might consider:How many GoPros are sold per year?How many GoPros are sold to motorcyclists?How many motorcycle camera mounts are sold?What other products would a ride-recording motorcyclist be interested in? Can I get sales figures for those?How many camera-on-board motorcycle videos are there on YouTube?What percentage of ride videos make it from the camera to YouTube?What is the number of active motorcyclists in your country?What's the ratio of motorcyclists to the general population?What types of riders are likely to use a GoPro? Off-road? Cruisers? Stunters? Racers?Take all these factors together, and I think you might start approaching a reasonable answer.How many motorcyclists ride with a camera?

Many years ago (35?) I was selling mini-computers (back when the earth was still cooling), and I sold several to the National Park Service, with one going into Yosemite. They were planning to install the system in a cabin inside the park for purposes of tracking growth of vegetation, as well as animal activity. We were a little concerned about environmental control, but the Park Service assured us that they would have no difficulty maintaining sufficient temperature control to avoid operation outside of the systemu2019s specified range. But sure enough, it only took a few weeks before the systemu2019s power supply blew out. We sent a service guy out, and the power supply was quickly replaced. Unfortunately, the replacement only lasted a few days before it fried. So we took another power supply, but decided to monitor the system carefully for a few days to be certain the environment was sufficiently stable. And lo, the answer showed itself the very next morning, in the form of certain four-legged creatures. In our concerns about temperature control and such, we didnu2019t think about the rather wild setting and the various animals that might come visiting. And, very much like the housing industry found many, many years ago, mice are just about everywhere, and they love to chew on the insulation used in electrical wiring. Not unlike the metal flanges used to keep rats from making their way aboard ships in harbor via the mooring ropes, we fashioned and secured in place a flange around the base of the computer system. And after that one simple step, that computer system magically turned into one of the most reliable systems we ever installed. And yes, our engineers did, indeed, change our wiring specification to use insulation that small creatures find distasteful.What is the weirdest thing you have found causing problems in a computer?
