Image Sensors Outfit Industrial Cameras

OmniVision Technologies’ latest 2-micron image sensors, the OS02F10 and OS04B10, are built with OmniBSI pixel technology. According to the company, the two sensors provide the industry's most cost-effective backside illumination (BSI) solutions and are designed for capturing high definition (HD) images in entry-level IoT, industrial, commercial, and residential security and surveillance cameras.

 

The OS02F10 and OS04B10, reportedly, can produce high-quality digital images and HD video, even in poor lighting conditions. This capability is critical for security applications. Their wide chief ray angle (CRA) of 9 degrees enables thinner modules with wide-aperture lenses for accurate, unobtrusive surveillance.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The OS02F10 is a 2-megapixel (MP) sensor that supports 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution streaming video at 30 frames per second (fps). This ultra-compact sensor features a 1/4-inch optical format and a 4.9 x 3.0-mm chip scale package (CSP). Its high quantum efficiency (QE) requires less IR illumination, thus enabling low power consumption for excellent camera battery life. The OS02F10 itself consumes less than 120 mW.

 

The OS04B10 is designed for applications covering larger surveillance areas. With 3.6-MP resolution, the OS04B10 supports 2K (2560 x 1440) resolution streaming video at 30 fps. It features a 1/3-inch optical format and a 6.3 x 3.7-mm CSP. The OS04B10's power consumption is less than 140 mW, and it has high QE for low system power.

 

The OS02F10 and OS04B10 image sensors are available now. Visit OmniVision for more info.
