AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified, OmniVision Technologies’ OV2778 automotive image sensor is viable for interior applications such as detecting packages and unattended children, as well as videoconferencing. Reportedly, the OV2778 comes in the smallest package available for the automotive in-cabin market segment, a 6.5 mm x 5.7 mm automotive CSP. It also offers advanced ASIL functional safety, which is important for in-cabin applications when the OV2778 is being integrated as part of an ADAS system.
The OV2778 is built on OmniVision’s 2.8-micron OmniBSI-2 Deep Well pixel technology, which delivers a 16-bit linear output from a single exposure with best-in-class low-light sensitivity. With the second exposure, the dynamic range increases to 120dB, which minimizes motion artifacts. With leading low-light performance, this sensor is ideally suited for in-cabin applications. Additionally, with an integrated RGB-IR, 4x4 pattern color filter and external frame synchronization capability, the OV2778 yields top performance across varying lighting conditions.
Samples are available now, along with a plug-and-play automotive reference design system that can be connected to any vehicle for rapid development. For deeper illuminations, checkout the OV2778 datasheet.
