Capturing HD 720p video at 60 fps, the OV9713 sensor is built on the company’s improved OmniPixel3-HS pixel technology. This pixel architecture offers better low-light sensitivity, SNR performance, and a 5-dB improvement in dynamic range over the previous generation. Additionally, it’s 12-bit RGB RAW output capability provides optimized HDR while the embedded sequential line- or frame-based HDR features allow an even higher dynamic range to address high-contrast scenes often encountered indoors. The 1/4-inch CMOS image sensor provides a low-light performance of 3300 mV/lux-second, comes with a standard two-lane MIPI interface, and fits into an 8 mm x 6 mm x 4.5 mm module size. The OV9713 is currently sampling with volume production by the second quarter. OMNIVISION TECHNOLOGIES INC., Sunnyvale, CA. (408) 542-3000.
