Aptina announced today that its AR0833 mobile imaging sensor with MobileHDR
technology has been selected by NVIDIA to enable the NVIDIA® Chimera™
Computational Photography Architecture in the NVIDIA Tegra® 4 family,
including Tegra 4 – the world’s fastest mobile processor – and the new Tegra
4i – the first integrated Tegra LTE processor.

Aptina’s leading-edge MobileHDR™ technology provides an outstanding
high-dynamic range (HDR) experience at sensor frame rates.The Tegra 4 and
