BSI-Based VGA Sensor A First For Mobile Apps
In a trim, 2.4- by 2.3-mm package, OmniVision Technologies’ OV7695 debuts as the first VGA sensor for mobile devices employing the company’s OmniBSI+ pixel architecture. Billed as a cost-effective upgrade for front-facing cameras in smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices, it’s also OmniVision’s smallest high-performance camera chip. Exploiting a 1.75-µm OmniBSI+ pixel architecture, the OV7695 demonstrates a significantly lower noise level than devices using FSI pixel architectures. This yields a sizeable dynamic range boost resulting in higher quality video. The OV7695 captures VGA video at 30 fps and supports a MIPI interface. It is available for sampling and production ramps up in the first quarter of 2013.
