OmniVision Technologies, Inc. has announced that the company has developed a new wide-format image sensor, that can capture high quality color images and video in a 2:1 aspect ratio. Based on OmniVision’s 4.2-micron OmniBSI-branded split pixel technology, the 1.7-Megapixel OV10650 is capable of delivering 1820 x 940 resolution at up to 60 frames per second and 120dB of dynamic range with what the company is saying is best-in-class low-light performance. The new sensor is fully compatible with OmniVision’s new image signal processing (ISP) companion chips (OV491 and OV495) that can be used in display-based automotive applications.
The company has stated that the new sensor OV10650, is ideal for use in next-generation rear video mirrors having wide, high-resolution displays as it has a high dynamic range and wide field of view.
OmniVision is launching another variant of the OV 10650, the OV10652, which has the same high performance and specifications but uses an RCCC color filter pattern for automotive camera integrators designing front-view advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Both OV10650 and OV10652 have specifications that meet the standards required by the 2018 New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Systems using these two sensors can enable safety features like lane departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, headlamp control, and traffic sign detection.
When it comes to packaging, the OV10650 and OV10652 each come in AEC-Q100 Grade 2-qualified, compact 9.5 mm x 6.8 mm chip scale packages. They also come with advanced features to enable ISO26262 ASIL B-rated camera systems. Currently, both sensors are available for sampling and the company expects to commence volume production in the third quarter of 2017.
