PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OX03A10, a 2.4MP sensor for rear-view and 360-degree surround-view automotive cameras. The OX03A10 leverages OmniVision's BSI-2 and Deep Well pixel technologies.

"With a dual-exposure HDR of 120 dB and industry-leading low-light sensitivity, the OX03A10 meets the automotive industry's most demanding requirements," said Will Foote, senior automotive marketing manager at OmniVision Technologies. "Acceptance by multiple tier-1 manufacturers are evidence that the industry appreciates the performance advantages and packaging options that this image sensor offers."

The OX03A10 addresses several issues with existing HDR image sensors, such as motion artifacts when taking multiple images and performance lags in low-light conditions. The OX03A10's HDR can deliver high quality images at up to 90 dB with single exposure and no motion artifacts, and up to 120 dB with double exposure. Additionally, OmniVision's state-of-the-art BSI-2 technology allows the sensor to combine low power consumption with superior image quality.

The OX03A10 image sensors are currently sampling.


PRNewswire: OmniVision also announces the OX01B40, a color CMOS sensor and an ISP, connected together in a single, 8.5 x 8.5 mm package. The OX01B40 system-in-package (SiP) can deliver 120 dB HDR for automotive cameras. The OX01B40, on the other hand, provides three options: digital video port (DVP), MIPI serial interface, and NTSC analog interface.

"Connecting the image sensor and ISP in a single package provides the smallest form factor for HD cameras today, enabling the design of an automotive viewing camera that consumers won't even notice," said Andy Hanvey, Sr. Staff marketing manager at OmniVision. "At the same time, we keep system costs down and reduce developers' engineering issues by supporting three different interfaces and including all the features their customers want to see in a single package."

The OX01B40 features include:
  • 2.8-micron OmniBSI-2 Deep Well pixel, enabling best in class low light performance
  • HDR ISP
  • Local and global tone-mapping support
  • Distortion and perspective correction, which creates undistorted images at up to a 190-degree angle
  • Overlay feature that supports static and dynamic overlays of up to eight independent layers
  • Low power consumption below 400 mW

The OX01B40 is sampling now, with volume production expected in Q4 2018.
