Color CMOS 720p Image Sensor with OmniBSI™ Technology

OmniVision's OV9724 is a compact, high performance image sensor offering 720p high definition video capture at 30 frames per second (fps) in an industry-leading miniaturized form factor. The low-power 1/9-inch OV9724 CameraChip™ sensor is built on OmniVision's powerful 1.4-micron OmniBSI+™ pixel architecture, enabling high quality color images and fast frame 720p HD video at 30 fps or cropped VGA at 60 fps on a highly-compact camera modules of 6 x 4.5 x 2.5 mm.

This unprecedented combination of high performance and small form factor allows HD cameras to be integrated into ultra-slim, narrow-bezel devices, making it an attractive solution for next-generation smartphones, notebooks, tablets, portable gaming systems and other mobile devices. The OV9724 is designed to satisfy all major industry standard performance and quality requirements currently prevailing in the market, offering customers an extensive flexibility when designing advanced imaging systems.

The OV9724 provides full-frame, sub-sampled or windowed 10-bit images. All required image processing functions, including exposure control and defective pixel cancelling, are programmable through the serial camera control bus (SCCB) interface. The image sensor is available in COB and CSP3 versions and features a one-lane, high-speed MIPI interface.
