Tiny Camera Sensor Exploits 1.4-Micron Technology

Unveiled as the industry’s 1/3-inch, eight-megapixel CMOS image sensor, the OV8810 emerges as the company's first CameraChip sensor to employ its 1.4-micron OmniBSI backside illumination technology. The BSI architecture enables both a smaller sensor size and a lower stack height, meaning the device can achieve a higher chief ray angle (CRA). A higher CRA allows for lower height lenses, thinner camera modules, and easier lens zooming. Capable of fitting within an 8.5 mm x 8.5 mm x 7 mm camera module, the sensor delivers image data in full, eight-megapixel resolution at 10 fps. It captures 720p high definition video at 60 fps or 1080p at 30 fps. Additionally, it supports eight-/10-/12-bit RAW RGB data over a two-lane MIPI or parallel interface. The device also supports all common automatic image control functions. The OV8810 is available for sampling with volume production set for the first quarter of 2009.
