720 Pixel HD Video Sensor for Portable Devices

Mon, 02/08/2010 - 7:30am

OmniVision Technologies, Inc. has unveiled its first native high-definition (HD) video sensor built on OmniBSI™ pixel technology. The compact 1/6-inch OV9726 delivers 720p HD video at 30 frames per second (fps), making it suited for high-performance HD cameras in notebooks, netbooks, webcams, mobile phones, portable media players (PMPs) and other mobile entertainment devices. Implementing OmniVison's 1.75-micron OmniBSI backside illumination pixel architecture, the OV9726 achieves excellent low-light sensitivity of 1,480 mV/lux-sec in the smallest available form factor (1/6.5-inch). With OmniBSI architecture, the image sensor receives light through the back side of the chip. As a result, there is no metal wiring to block the image light, and the entire backside of the image sensor can be photo-sensitive. Not only does this enable a superior image, it also permits the front of the chip surface area to be devoted entirely to processing, and permits an increase in the number of metal layers, both of which result in greater functionality.,
