World's Smallest Video Camera is Less than a Millimeter Across, Medigus Reveals


5/5/2011 8:26:11 AM

Israeli company Medigus has created the world's tiniest video cameras, at less than a millimeter in diameter. Designed for medical use, they are made from safe materials, says the company. They're based on the TSV (Through Silicon Via) method, which enables miniaturization and helps keep costs down. A dedicated 0.66x0.66 mm CMOS sensor provides high image resolution at 45,000 pixels, and the camera uses the company's own digital video processing systems. The cameras are designed specifically for small-diameter disposable endoscopic devices, used in diagnostic and surgical procedures in areas of the body where larger scopes aren't viable.
