Through major technological advancements in CMOS image sensors, driver assistance and safety-related imaging applications are becoming mainstream in today’s vehicles. These include camera-enabled systems for lane departure warning, rearview, 360-degree surround view and autonomous driving.
By 2018, the number of image sensors sold annually will exceed 100 million, which will be driven by rapid growth in application areas like rear- and surround-view camera systems, forward-facing machine vision, and mirror replacement.

Commitment to Quality
When it comes to our AutoVision products, quality is paramount. OmniVision conducts the most rigorous testing procedures on each and every one of its sensors to ensure they meet the highest quality, performance and reliability standards. In addition, all OmniVision automotive products are submitted to full AEC-Q100 qualification.
The OmniVision automotive design team has placed strong emphasis on package and test engineering. OmniVision’s automotive components are designed specifically to ensure reliable operation in harsh environments —resisting extreme temperatures, vibration and humidity.
Proprietary Color High Dynamic Range Technology
OmniVision’s proprietary color high dynamic range (HDR) concept and processing technology enables its automotive sensors to deliver excellent scene reproduction in the most demanding lighting conditions, achieving dynamic range of up to 120dB in color and black and white. Additionally, our HDR sensors employ auto dynamic range control to rapidly adjust to changing lighting and scene conditions, producing a clear, detailed and low-noise color image in any automotive scene. This proprietary approach to generating HDR images also dramatically reduces or eliminates motion ghost artifacts and other unwanted effects, resulting in the industry’s leading-quality brand of automotive image sensors.
Industry-Leading Features to Support ISO 26262 (ASIL) Safety Standards
Many of OmniVision’s AutoVision sensors have integrated features to support different levels of ASIL compliance. Features such as embedded data and built-in temperature sensors deliver high-value information about data reliability to the system designer. OmniVision is the industry leader in features that help to ensure system confidence.
World's Smallest Automotive Package
OVT now offers its latest automotive sensors in its proprietary AutoVision chip-scale package (aCSP™), placing OVT at the forefront of packaging technology, including the industry’s smallest and most cost effective automotive package—up to 50 percent smaller than competing CMOS devices.
