Image Sensor Brings High-Definition Video To Mobiles

The rapidly growing demand for affordable, HD-quality digital video cameras is addressed by the OV2710, a native 1080p high-definition (HD) CMOS image sensor designed to deliver high-end video conferencing and recording for camcorders, notebooks, net books, and other mobile applications. The 1/3-in. sensor offers a 1920 x 1080 array using a 3-µm OmniPixel3-HS pixel, delivering excellent low-light performance of 3300 mV/(lux-second), dark current of 6 mV/s and a peak dynamic range of 69 dB. As a result, the OV2710 operates in low-light situations well below 15 lux. The sensor, which operates at 30 frames per second, supports multiple platform architectures and controllers with both parallel and MIPI interfaces. The OV2710 significantly reduces product development time by allowing system designers to leverage the same opto-electrical design across various products and multiple market segments. The OV2710 will enter into mass production in September 2009. OMNIVISION TECHNOLOGIES INC., Santa Clara, CA. (408) 567-3000.
