Commercial Image Sensor Measures A Mere 0.575 mm x 0.575 mm

OmniVision Technologies launches the OV6948, said to be one of the world’s smallest commercially available image sensors. Initially developed for small-outer-diameter medical endoscopes and catheters, the OV6948 can be designed into a wide range of applications, including dental, veterinary, IoT, industrial, wearable and forensic devices. The OV6948 leverages OmniVision’s proven OmniBSI+™ pixel technology to deliver best-in-class image quality and low-light performance in a package that measures just 0.575 mm x 0.575 mm.

 

Additional features include:

  • 1/36-inch optical format
  • 200 × 200 pixel capture at 30 frames per second (FPS)
  • High sensitivity: 1000 mV/lux-sec
  • Analog data output with the ability to transmit up to 4 meters with minimal signal noise
  • Minimum package size (4 pads total) for easy integration

 

The OV6948 is currently sampling and is expected to start mass production in the second quarter of 2018. Find out more at http://www.ovt.com
