PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OV2778 automotive image sensor, which is said to provide the best value of any 2MP RGB-IR sensor for cabin- and occupant-monitoring, such as detecting packages and unattended children. The OV2778 comes in the smallest package available for the automotive in-cabin market segment — a 6.5 x 5.7mm automotive CSP. It also offers advanced ASIL functional safety, which is important for in-cabin applications when the OV2778 is being integrated as part of an ADAS system.

Demand for cabin and occupant monitoring are accelerating growth in the global automotive image sensor market,” said Thilo Rausch, product marketing manager at OmniVision. “Our new OV2778 image sensor enables these applications in mainstream vehicles by providing the best value with high sensitivity across all lighting conditions.

The OV2778 is built on 2.8um OmniBSI-2 Deep Well pixel technology, which delivers a 16-bit linear output from a single exposure. With the second exposure, the DR increases to 120dB. Additionally, with an integrated RGB-IR, 4x4 pattern color filter and external frame synchronization capability, the OV2778 yields top performance across varying lighting conditions.

This image sensor is AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified for automotive applications. OV2778 samples are available now, along with a plug-and-play automotive reference design system that can be connected to any vehicle for rapid development.
