OMNIVISION Announces the First 200MP Resolution Image Sensor with the World’s Smallest 0.61-micron Pixel Size for High End Smartphones

Announced at CES 2022, OMNIVISION revolutionizes smartphone cameras with the OVB0B, a 0.61 µm pixel 200MP resolution image sensor featuring 16-cell CFA for dramatically better preview and video quality

LAS VEGAS — January 5, 2022 — OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog and touch & display technology, today announced at CES 2022 the OVB0B―the world’s smallest 200MP image sensor with pixel size at just 0.61 µm for smartphone cameras. The unique 16-cell binning of the OVB0B delivers premium video and preview quality in 12.5MP mode, especially in low light. The OVB0B is the first 200MP to offer 100% quad phase detection (QPD) technology for excellent fast autofocus performance.

“Consumers want high resolution captures and high quality preview and video. As the image sensor technology leader, we have applied our PureCel®Plus‑S stacked die technology to dramatically push mobile main cameras to a new level,” said Arun Jayaseelan, staff marketing manager at OMNIVISION. “With the new OVB0B, we now offer the industry’s highest resolution in a small package for high end smart phones along with the best low-light performance in its class.”

The OVB0B features the industry’s first 16-cell binning capability for 4K2K video with 16 times the sensitivity. In low light environments it achieves 12.5MP performance with 2.44 µm-equivalent pixel size using near pixel 4×4 binning. An on-chip remosaic enables 50MP at 24 frames per second (fps) and 8k video at 30 fps with 1.22 µm-equivalent performance. The OVB0B can also output 12.5MP at 30 fps with 3‑exposure staggered HDR timing.

“The introduction of 200MP image sensor products for smartphone cameras promises to capture stunning details within images, meeting the needs of smartphone vendors who are aggressively looking to differentiate their devices with enhanced cameras that feature high-resolution image sensors. We estimate more than 40 million image sensors with 100MP+ resolution are expected to be shipped to smartphone vendors in 2022,” says Jeffrey Mathews, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics.

The OVB0B supports CPHY, DPHY and dual DOVDD (1.8V and 1.2V). Samples of the OVB0B are available now. Contact your OMNIVISION sales representative for more information: www.ovt.com/contact-sales.

How to Fast-Charge Your Supercapacitor

Sponsored by Analog Devices

Supercapacitors (or ultracapacitors) are suited for short charge and discharge cycles. They require high currents for fast charge as well as a high voltage with a high number in series as shown in two usage cases: an automatic pallet shuttle and a fail-safe backup system. In these and many other cases, the fast charge is provided by a flexible, high-efficiency, high-voltage, and high-current charger based on a synchronous, step-down, supercapacitor charger controller.

Power Profiler II

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Nordic Semiconductor

If you are working on a low-power IoT design, you are going to face power issues that can get quite complicated. Addressing these issues earlier in your design process can save you a lot of time, effort, and frustration. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kristian Sæther from Nordic Semiconductor about the details of the new Nordic Power Profiler Kit II - including how it can measure actual current, help you configure the right design settings, and show you a visualized power profile for your next design.
