The OV7261 global-shutter image sensor is described as an imaging solution for gesture control and driver monitoring applications such as driver drowsiness and distraction detection. Built on a 3-µm pixel, the sensor offers significant LED illuminator power reduction due to its high quantum efficiency at near-infrared wavelengths. The sensor's global shutter pixel also enables accurate fast motion capture, and stereo vision pixel-level synchronization. Specifications include a 640 x 480 (VGA) resolution up to 100 fps, 10-bit RAW image output, and a 3.9 mm x 3.4 mm AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified chip scale package. The sensor is available for sampling now, and is expected to enter volume production in the first quarter of 2017.
