Color CMOS 5-megapixel (2592x1944) Image Sensor With OmniBSI-2™ Technology

The 5-megapixel OV5680 features OmniVision's advanced 1.75-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture, designed to further narrow the performance gap between smartphones and dedicated digital video cameras. The 1/3.2-inch CMOS image sensor offers best-in-class image quality while capturing 1080p high-definition (HD) video at 30 frames per second (fps) for mobile applications.

The OV5680 utilizes an integrated scaler to provide 1080p HD video capture at 30 fps for continuous shooting and shutterless designs without any lag. The scaler enables electronic image stabilization, while maintaining full field of view in 1080p HD video mode. The sensor's 2x2 binning functionality with post-binning re-sampling filter enables 720p video capture at 60 fps, minimizes spatial artifacts and removes image artifacts around edges, delivering clean and crisp color images for best-in-class HD video.

The OV5680 can synchronize exposure and frame for stereo cameras to meet 3D video capture requirements. The new 1.75-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel is built using a 300 mm copper process with 65 nm design rules, offering optimized die size, lower power consumption, and significant performance and image quality improvements over the first-generation OmniBSI™ pixel.

The OV5680 comes with a standard 2-lane MIPI serial output interface and fits into the industry standard 8.5 x 8.5 x ≤6 mm module size.
