Color CMOS QSXGA (5-megapixel) Image Sensor with OmniBSI Technology

The OV5650 is OmniVision's advanced 5-megapixel imaging solution for mobile phones featuring 1.75 µm OmniBSI™ (backside illumination) technology. OmniBSI technology delivers a number of performance improvements over front-side illumination (FSI) technology, including increased sensitivity per unit area, improved quantum efficiency, reduced crosstalk and photo response non-uniformity, which all lead to significant improvements in image quality.

Designed specifically to address consumer demand for digital still camera (DSC) quality imaging in a mobile phone, the OV5650 combines industry leading low-light sensitivity at 1300 mV/lux-sec and a 2x improvement in (SNR10) signal-to-noise ratio (<60 lux), with the industry's lowest stack height – ideal for today's ultra-slim mobile phones.

The superior pixel performance of the 1/3.2-inch OV5650 enables high frame rate 720p HD video at 60 frames per second with complete user control over formatting and output data transfer. The OV5650 supports a digital video parallel port or two-lane MIPI, provides full-frame, windowed or binned 10-bit images in RAW RGB format, and 256 bytes of available on-chip memory.

Automatic image control features and high frame rates for video encoding deliver vivid still and video images, even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

The OV5650 – an ideal 5-megapixel solution for mobile imaging.
