OmniVision to Reveal New Image Sensors for Industrial and IoT Security Cameras at the Security China Show

October 24, 2018 Laura Dolan

OmniVision Technologies, Inc. is exhibiting its latest 2-micron image sensors at the Security China Show in Beijing, Booth #E1E19, this week. The sensors are built with OmniBSI pixel technology including the OS02F10 and OS04B10, providing cost-effective backside illumination (BSI) solutions and are designed to capture high definition (HD) images in entry-level IoT, industrial, commercial, and residential security and surveillance cameras.

The OS02F10 and OS04B10 are designed to deliver high-quality digital images and HD video with a wide chief ray angle (CRA) of 9 degrees, allowing thinner modules to capture footage with wide-aperture lenses for the clearest surveillance, even in limited lighting.

The OS02F10 is a 2-megapixel (MP) sensor that supports 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution streaming video at 30 frames per second (fps). The miniscule sensor has a 1/4-inch optical format and a 4.9 x 3.0-mm chip scale package (CSP). Its high quantum efficiency (QE) requires less IR illumination, using less battery power, consuming less than 120 mW.

The OS04B10 is meant to cover larger areas of surveillance with 3.6-MP resolution. It supports 2K (2560 x 1440) resolution streaming video at 30 fps. It has a 1/3-inch optical format and a 6.3 x 3.7-mm CSP. The OS04B10 uses less than 140 mW, and it has high QE for low system power.

“Previously, entry-level IoT security and surveillance cameras could only afford frontside illumination image sensors, which has limited the performance of these cameras,” said Brian Fang, OmniVision’s business development director. “With our new OS02F10 and OS04B10 image sensors, even security cameras designed for residential applications will no longer have to sacrifice performance for cost effectiveness. The compact OmniBSI architecture reduces pixel crosstalk, yielding excellent image quality.”
