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.
