New generation of CMOS imagers in global shutter technology at Omnivision

Omnivision’s latest global shutter image sensors are 26% more compact and 50% more energy efficient than previous generation models.

Virtual or augmented reality glasses, drones, industrial vision, barcode readers. These are some examples of applications targeted by the latest generation of CMOS imagers Omnivision’s global shutter technology, which is a big step up compared to previous generation models. Image sensors AND0VE are thus 26% more compact and 50% less energy-consuming than their predecessors.

Utilization of technology OmniPixel3-GS of the company, these VGA imagers (640 x 480 pixels on 3 ┬Ám side) in 1/7.5 inch optical format have dimensions of only 3.6 x 2.7 mm and a power consumption of less than 34 mW for 60 images per second operation in VGA.

Their global shutter architecture for fast motion detection as well as their good low light sensitivity enables these sensors to be used in any application that requires simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), gesture detection, head and eye tracking of a person, and more generally depth and depth sensing.

That OG0VE, which have a single-channel MIPI D-PHY interface up to 800 Mbit/s, are available for sampling now. Their volume production is expected to take place in mid-2023.
