Color CMOS VGA (640x480) Image Sensor with OmniBSI Technology

The OV7727 is a top-of-the-line VGA sensor for the next generation of high-end, ultra-thin notebooks. The 1/13-inch OV7727 is the first VGA sensor built with a 1.75-micron OmniBSI™ backside illumination pixel, which offers video conference-quality low-light performance of 1300 mV/lux-sec and enables a short lens height to achieve complete camera modules of less than 2.2 mm. The sensor is designed to be integrated with sub-2 mm liquid crystal display (LCD) displays making it ideal for next generation notebooks, netbooks, tablet computers and other portable devices.

The OV7727 offers complete user control over image quality, resolution and output data format. It provides full frame, sub-sampled, windowed or scaled 8-bit/10-bit images in RAW RGB output format over a parallel DVP interface or serial MIPI port, offering a versatile platform for use in single and multi-camera applications. A new feature on the OV7727 is a serial peripheral interface (SPI), which supports multiple cameras using a single controller, while also offering support to touch screen applications.

The OV7727 comes with image processing functions, including automatic exposure control, automatic white balance control, and dead pixel correction, which are all programmable through the serial camera control bus interface.
