OmniVision has developed the smallest pixel for mobile sensors – just 0.56 microns

OmniVision company specifiedthat she managed to break the world record for the pixel size on a CMOS sensor for mobile phone cameras. With new generation sensors, the resolution of mobile recording will increase, as will the indicators associated with it: quantum efficiency and energy consumption.

Developers of mobile sensors often cite pixel size as one of the most important parameters reflecting their actual performance and advantages over competitors. The new OmniVision technology has reduced the pixel size on the sensor to 0.56 µm, which is significantly less than 0.8 µm for the ISOCELL HM3 sensor used in the new flagship Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, and at 200 even less than 0.64 µm. Megapixel ISOCELL HP1 sensor.

OmniVision also found that the pixel size turned out to be even smaller than the wavelength of individual parts of the visible range – for red, for example, this is about 0.7 microns. The manufacturer emphasizes that the new generation of sensors will be manufactured in TSMC’s factories based on 28nm process technology, which offers “uncompromising” quantum efficiency as well as improved autofocus capabilities based on Quad Phase Detection (QPD) technology.

Sensors for smartphones manufactured using the new technology will get a resolution of 200 megapixels – their production will begin in the second quarter of 2022, and the first samples will be shipped to partners in the third quarter. Smartphones with new sensors from OmniVision are expected to hit the market in early 2023.
