Color CMOS (1392x976) High Dynamic Range (HDR) High Definition Image Sensor

OmniVision's OV9716 is a high-performance image sensor that brings 1392 x 976 resolution at up to 60 frames per second with more than 120 dB dynamic range to automotive imaging applications. The sensor comes in a 1/3.8-inch optical format and is built on 2.8-micron OmniBSI-2™ Deep Well™ pixel technology, which delivers best-in-class low-light sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) performance even in challenging lighting conditions. The OV9716 is specifically designed to bring the performance of a high-end imaging solution at a cost and form factor suitable for the automotive mass market segment, targeting rear view cameras and 360-degree surround view systems.

The OV9716's Deep Well™ pixel technology provides a 16-bit linear output, capturing 94 dB of scene dynamic range in a single frame, compared to traditional sensors with only 12-bit linear output. This 94 dB output comes without HDR combination artifacts and has no sudden drops in signal-to-noise ratio across the scene. The sensor can further expand dynamic range to more than 120 dB by using a second 'very short' exposure, also minimizing motion artifacts.

The OV9716 is available in an AEC-Q100 Grade 2-qualified, compact 5.8 x 5.25 mm chip scale package and contains an advanced set of safety mechanisms to enable ISO26262 ASIL B-rated camera systems. The sensor is compatible with OmniVision's family of powerful image signal processor (ISP) companion chips for display-based automotive applications.
