BusinessWire: OmniVision announces the OV40A, a 40MP, 1.008um pixel sensor that features super high gain and de-noise technologies in the 1/1.7” optical format. This sensor also offers multiple HDR options and supports 1080p slow-motion and high-speed video captures at 240 fps with PDAF.

TSR estimates there will be 855 million image sensors with 40MP or higher resolution shipped to smartphone manufacturers in 2021, which presents a huge opportunity for this new image sensor,” said James Liu, senior technical marketing manager at OmniVision. “The OV40A’s unique combination of features is bringing flagship-level performance to the main, wide, ultrawide and video cameras in this fast-growing market segment.

The OV40A supports super high gain of up to 256x with embedded multi-sampling de-noise functionality for enhanced low-light performance. This sensor also offers HDR through selective conversion gain, along with 2- and 3-exposure staggered HDR timing. 

Built on OmniVision’s PureCel Plus-S stacked die technology, the OV40A integrates an on-chip, 4-cell (4C) color filter array and hardware remosaic, which provides high quality, 40MP Bayer output in real time. For low-light conditions, this sensor can use near-pixel binning to output a 10MP image, as well as 4K2K and 1080p video, with four times the sensitivity, yielding 2.0um pixel-equivalent low-light performance.

Output formats include 40MP at 30 fps, 10MP with 4C binning at 120 fps, 4K2K video at 60 fps and 1080p video at 240 fps. All of these formats can be captured with PDAF. Other features include a CPHY interface, multi-camera sync and a 34.7 degree CRA.

Samples of the new OV40A image sensor are available now.
