Omnivision announced the development of the industry’s first 0.7 µm, 9.2 megapixel image sensor for next-generation laptop cameras. The product received the designation OV08X.
The CMOS sensor has an optical format of 1/5.7 inch. It offers 4K resolution – up to 3840 × 2160 pixels. It is possible to record video material in the 4K standard at a speed of up to 30 frames per second. We are talking about HDR (High Dynamic Range) support.
The novelty implements the proprietary PureCel Plus-S technology, an analogue of Samsung ISOCELL Plus. Special partitions between pixels are used to capture photons more efficiently and accurately. As a result, the light sensitivity indicators increase and the color reproduction improves compared to conventional sensors.
Support for 10-bit 4C RGB RAW and Bayer RAW output formats is mentioned. The operating temperature range is from -30 to +85 degrees Celsius. The product has low power consumption.
The OV08X image sensor supports AI Auto Framing, which keeps the user in the center of the image during video calls.
Test deliveries of the sensor have already started, and mass production will be organized in December this year.
