OmniVision's OV13870 is the industry's first 13-megapixel "big pixel" sensor capable of recording full-resolution 1080p high definition (HD) video at 240 frames per second (fps). The OV13870 also features a 12-bit analog to digital converter (ADC) to enable better low light signal to noise ratio (SNR), phase detection auto focus (PDAF), and dedicated support for dual-camera functionality.

Built on OmniVision's new PureCel Plus-S pixel architecture, the OV13870 delivers best-in-class pixel performance with significant improvements in low-light performance and crosstalk reduction with minimal chip size. Even with a 1/2.74-inch optical format, the OV13870 has an extremely compact module with a z-height of about 5.5 mm.

The OV13870 can capture full-resolution 13-megapixel still images at 45 fps or record ultra-high resolution 4K2K video at 60 fps, 1080p full HD at 240 fps.
