SANTA CLARA, CA. OmniVision Technologies, Inc. released its first 0.8 micron pixel image sensor with 32 megapixel (MP) resolution, the OV32A, which is manufactured on OmniVision’s PureCel Plus stacked die technology.

The OV32A’s high-resolution images come in many versions, including 32MP at 15 frames per second (fps), 8MP with 4-cell binning at 60 fps, 4K2K video at 60 fps, 1080p video at 120 fps and 720p video at 240 fps.

“The demand for high-performance smartphone cameras is very strong, with consumers clamoring for ever-higher resolution in high-end mobile phones—including selfie cameras,” said OmniVision’s senior marketing manager, Arun Jayaseelan. “At the same time, circuitry space within smartphones is at a premium. With the OV32A’s submicron 0.8µ pixel size, it can provide leading-edge 32MP resolution with a 1/2.8-inch optical format. This compact form factor, combined with many advanced features such as on-chip re-mosaic and near-pixel binning, make the OV32A ideal for high-end smartphones.”
