Heralded as the automotive industry’s first and smallest-in-class 2-MPixel, RGB-IR global shutter image sensor, OmniVision Technologies’ OV2312 automotive image sensor enables multiple functions in one camera. The ability to capture both RGB and IR images with one global shutter (GS) sensor reduces the number of cameras and total system cost. According to its maker, the OV2312 enables dual-mode cameras with motion-artifact-free images at resolutions of 1600x1300 at 60 fps and 1280x720 at 90 fps. Additionally, the sensor comes in a 7.2 mm x 6.1 mm automotive chip-scale package.
For operation without visible light, the OV2312 features the 3.0-micron OmniPixel3-GS architecture, which provides a near-infrared (NIR) quantum efficiency of 14% at the 940 nm wavelength. In terms of power economy, the sensor itself consumes 190 mW in typical conditions.
Samples of the AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified OV2312 are available now. To learn more, peruse the OV2312 datasheet.
