PRNewswire: OmniVision announces 1.3MP OX01F10 SoC, an 1/4" 3.0um pixel image sensor with ISP for automotive rear view camera (RVC) and surround view system (SVS).

"Analysts predict that SVS and RVC will continue to hold the majority share in the automotive camera market, with over 50% of the total market volume through 2023. SVS, in particular, is expected to double its growth between now and 2023 due to increased customer adoption," said Andy Hanvey, director of automotive marketing at OmniVision. "Our OX01F10 SoC provides the best option for automotive designers responding to this growing consumer demand for better RVCs, along with the expansion of SVS into the mainstream market. Additionally, this SOC's functional safety features allow module providers to create a single platform for both the viewing cameras and the machine vision applications that require ASIL B."

OmniVision's dual conversion gain (DCG) technology is employed in this SoC to achieve a high dynamic range of 120dB with only two captures, as opposed to three required by the competition, which minimizes motion artifacts while reducing power consumption and boosting low-light performance. The OX01F10 features less than 300mW typical power consumption, which is said to be 30% lower than competitors.

Its integrated ISP features:
  • Lens chromatic aberration correction
  • Advanced noise reduction and local tone mapping
  • Optimizations for the on-chip image sensor's PureCel Plus technology

PureCel Plus technology provides what is said to be an industry best SNR1 of 0.19 lux. This results in the OX01F10 performing better than the competition across challenging lighting conditions. The OX01F10 SoC is AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified and samples are available now.
