OmniVision's OV13A10 is an ultra-compact 13-megapixel image sensor built on OmniVision's second-generation, 1.0-micron PureCel®Plus-S stacked die pixel technology. Designed specifically for dual-camera applications, the OV13A10 achieves a z-height of less than 6 mm, meeting the compact space requirements of next-generation smartphones.

A customized chief ray angle (CRA) enables the OV13A10 to be used as a tele-sensor in a 2x optical zoom configuration, which offers DSLR-like image quality and user experience. The OV13A10 is also optimized for dual-camera zoom solutions, with features such as context switching and frame synchronizing to simplify camera system architecture.

The OV13A10 brings a host of advanced imaging capabilities to smartphones, including zigzag high dynamic range (zHDR) and phase-detection autofocus (PDAF), which extends the sensor's dynamic range capabilities and enables snap-quick autofocus, respectively. The sensor supports multiple resolution and frame-rate configurations, including full-resolution 13-megapixel images and video at 30 frames per second (fps) with zHDR, 4K2K video at 30 fps, and 1080p video at 60 fps.
