OmniVision improves mainstream security image sensor

This post was originally published on this site

OmniVision Technologies, Inc. has introduced the OS02G10 security image sensor, aimed at mainstream security cameras requiring 1080p resolution and excellent low-light pixel performance. The CMOS 2-MP OS02G10 claims best-in-class low-light captures via a 2.8 micron pixel built on the OmniPixel3-HS architecture, which improves image capture under very low-light conditions. Compared with OmniVision’s previous-generation mainstream security sensor, it offers 60 percent better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR1) and 40 percent lower power consumption.

OmniVision reported that it is using 12-inch wafers to manufacture the new security image sensor instead of the 8-inch wafers that are in tight supply but are typically used for 2-MP, 1080p sensors. This enables the company meet demand for this resolution, which is the most popular for consumer-grade,  IoT security cameras, as well as low-end industrial and commercial surveillance cameras.

Image sensors advance for wide-ranging applications

Other key features include a 15-degree CRA, an integrated dynamic defective pixel correction algorithm for optimal image quality, a two-lane MIPI interface, an output format of 10-bit RAW RGB, and 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. Programmable controls include frame rate, mirror and flip, cropping, and windowing. The operating temperature range is -30°C to 85°C.

Samples of the OS02G10 image sensor in a chip-scale package are available.
