SANTA CLARA, CA. OmniVision Technologies, Inc. and Fullhan Microelectronics will join forces on capturing and processing high quality color (RGB) and infrared (IR) automotive interior images with a single camera for both day and night vision. The solution will merge OmniVision’s OV2778 2MP RGB-Ir image sensor with Fullhan’s FH8310 image signal processor (ISP).
The OV2778 image sensor, built on OmniVision’s 2.8-micron OmniBSI™-2 Deep Well pixel technology, provides a 16-bit linear output from a single exposure with low-light sensitivity. The FH8310 ISP features a 3D de-noise module with optimal low light performance.
The two will produce a high-quality video for both machine vision in-cabin monitoring systems (IMS) and viewing applications for facial recognition, identification of objects and unattended children, remote monitoring, and recording for ride-sharing and robo taxi vehicles.
“We partnered with OmniVision because it provides a mature RGB-IR image sensor for IMS that was readily adaptable to our processor,” said Fullhan’s VP of sales, Shen Ma. “Our FH8310 is a high performance, cost effective 2MP ISP for automotive image sensors that provides good low light performance and an internal analog high definition transceiver.”
“Fullhan provides a full-service ISP offering for China and other regions,” said OmniVision’s China regional marketing director, Shu Meng. “Following the recent introduction of our OV2778 image sensor, we developed a fine-tuned joint solution that makes it easy for designers to create high value cabin monitoring systems for mainstream vehicles.”
