Image Sensor Enables High-Quality Video Capture From Smartphones

OmniVision Technologies’ OV02K is a video-centric, 2.9-micron 1080p image sensor designed for smartphones. Built on the company’s PureCel Plus pixel technology, the sensor allows the secondary camera in multi-camera configurations to capture high-quality videos, even in very low ambient light conditions.


The large 2.9-micron pixel size enables greater sensitivity and very low noise, resulting in an SNR10 of less than 10 lux. The OV02K, which comes in a 1/2.8” optical format, features 1080p resolution at up to 120 frames per second (fps), suitable for either standard or slow-motion video capture. The sensor also supports up to three exposures of staggered timing to enable high dynamic range (HDR) and supports frame-to-frame dual conversion gain (DCG).
