13-Mpixel Image Sensor Focuses On High-End Mobile Applications
Groomed for demanding, high-end mobile imaging, the13-Megapixel OV13870 PureCel Plus-S image sensor is capable of recording 1080p high definition (HD) video at 240 fps for slow motion, quadruple the frame rate of the company’s previous generation 13-megapixel sensor. The sensor features a 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to enable better low-light signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), phase detection auto focus (PDAF) for snap-quick focusing, and dedicated support for dual-camera functionality. Built on the company’s latest 1.25-micron PureCel Plus-S pixel architecture, the OV13870 boasts best-in-class pixel performance with improvements in low-light performance and crosstalk reduction while maintaining an optical format of 1/2.6‑inch and a compact, 5.2-mm module height. Additionally, it can capture full-resolution 13-megapixel still images at 45 fps or record ultra-high resolution 4K2K video at 60 fps. The OV13870 is currently available for sampling, and is expected to enter volume production in the second quarter.
