OmniVision Technologies announced in advance of CES the expansion of its backside-illuminated global shutter sensor family, with the OG0VA image sensor and OC0VA CameraCubeChip wafer-level camera module. The VGA imagers are presented as having the industry’s smallest pixel size at 2.2 microns, and in addition the OC0VA is the first CameraCubeChip with Nyxel technology.
These imagers feature OmniVision’s PureCel Plus-S stacked-pixel architecture and Nyxel NIR technology. Targeting consumer and industrial machine vision and 3D sensing applications, the imager’s global shutter helps avoid motion blur, and the devices' system power consumption is reduced by requiring less IR LED illumination in low- and no-light conditions.
With an optical format of 1/10 inches and a 2.69x3.04mm footprint, the OG0VA camera module delivers 640x480 (VGA) resolution at 240 frames per second, and 320x240 QVGA resolution at 480 fps. The OC0VA CameraCubeChip combines this sensor with image signal processing and optics into a 2.69 x 3.04 x 3.04mm wafer-level camera module. A high MTF enables sharper images with greater contrast and more detail, The QE is 40% at 940nm and 60% at 850nm.
