OmniVision and Unigroup Spreadtrum Introduce Turnkey Active Stereo 3D Camera Reference Design for Smartphones

January 11, 2018 ECD Staff

OmniVision Technologies, a developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, and Spreadtrum Communications, a fabless semiconductor company in China with advanced technology in 2G, 3G and 4G wireless communications standards, announced a turnkey active stereo 3D camera reference design for smartphones. The reference design’s small form factor and low power requirements enable smartphone manufacturers to quickly and easily incorporate advanced 3D imaging capabilities, such as 3D modeling, depth capturing and face authentication, into next-generation smartphone designs.

Pairing OmniVision’s ultra-compact OV9282 and OV7251 global shutter sensors with the powerful Spreadtrum SC9853 applications processor has resulted in a compelling active stereo camera solution that delivers the performance manufacturers expect in the remarkably compact and power-efficient form factor they need. Based on the 14nm octa-core 64-bit Intel Airmont processor architecture, the Spreadtrum SC9853 reaches 1.8 GHz in dominant frequency and delivers high-quality multimedia capabilities.
