Image Sensors Bring 5-Mpixel Selfies To Next-Gen Smartphones And Tablets
OmniVision Technologies Inc.

The OV5675 and OV5695 5-Mpixel image sensors debut as cost-competitive camera solutions for front-facing camera applications in smartphones and tablets. Built on 1.12-micron PureCel technology, the 1/5-inch OV5675 is reportedly the smallest 5-megapixel image sensor currently available on the market. It can capture full resolution video in a native 4:3 aspect ratio at 30 fps, or 720p and 1080p video at 60 fps. Compared to previous generation image sensors, the OV5675 offers improved quantum efficiency, crosstalk, and power efficiency in a compact package with a z-height of less than 4 mm. The 1/4-inch OV5695 utilizes a 1.4-micron OmniBSI+ pixel architecture to capture full resolution video in a native 4:3 aspect ratio at 30 fps, 1080p video at 30 fps, or 720p video at 60 fps with support for interlaced high dynamic range (iHDR). The sensor's exceptional low-light sensitivity enhances image and video quality when recording in low-light conditions, and reduces user dependence on the device's front-facing flash functionality. Additionally, the OV5695 supports low power mode.
