Color CMOS 8-megapixel (3264x2448) Image Sensor with OmniBSI™ Technology

The 1/3.2-inch OV8825 is an 8-megapixel CameraChip™ sensor built on OmniVision's advanced OmniBSI+™ pixel architecture, providing many significant improvements over the previous OmniBSI™ generation, including a 60 percent increase infull-well capacity, a 10 percent increase in quantum efficiency and a 10 percent improvement in low-light sensitivity. OmniBSI+ pixel architecture enables the OV8825 to dramatically improve image and video capture in both bright and low-light conditions, making it a highly attractive solution for next generation for smartphones and tablets.

The OV8825 operates at 24 frames per second (fps) in full resolution, and in 1080p high-definition (HD) video mode at 30 fps or 720p at 60 fps. The sensor's high frame rate also helps eliminate image lag for shutter-less designs, and enables continuous shooting, minimized rolling shutter effect and real-time image capture with no lag between resolutions. A high-speed, 4-lane MIPI interface facilitates the required high data transfer rates necessary for capturing 10-bit 8-megapixel images and HD video.

An integrated scaler offers electronic image stabilization and enables it to maintain full field-of-view (FOV) with improved signal-to-noise performance in 1080p high-definition (HD) video mode at 30 fps. The sensor's 2x2 binning functionality with a post-binning re-sampling filter function minimizes spatial artifacts and removes image artifacts around edges, delivering clean, crisp color images.

The OV8825 fits into the industry standard 8.5 x 8.5 mm module size and features certain image processing functions such as lens shading correction and defect pixel correction, as well as 256-bytes of embedded one-time programmable memory.
