OmniVision Technologies has released its latest imaging solution for mobile phones with the 1.75µ OmniBSI (backside illumination) family. Designed specifically to address consumer demand for digital still camera (DSC) quality imaging in a mobile phone, the new devices combine very low-light sensitivity at >1400m V/(lux-sec) and a 2x improvement in signal-to-noise ratio (< 70 lux), with one of the industry's lowest stack heights suited for today's ultra-slim mobile phones. Automatic image control features and high frame rates for video encoding deliver vivid still and video images, even in the most challenging lighting conditions. The 1.75µ OmniBSI family consists of a 5-megapixel OV5650 RAW sensor for mobile phone high resolution cameras, and the 2-megapixel OV2665 system on chip (SoC), designed to deliver the industry's best image quality to the mass market sector.
