OmniVision's automotive reference design system (ARDS) provides automotive imaging-system and software developers a plug-and-play platform to easily design next-generation advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The modular approach of OmniVision's ARDS allows developers to quickly mix and match image sensors, image signal processors (ISPs) and long-distance serializer modules, enabling streamlined system development and accelerated time-to-market.
With its compact form factor, OmniVision's ARDS is ideally suited for a wide range of ADAS applications, including rear video mirrors, camera monitor systems (CMS) and dash cameras. OmniVision's ARDS demo kit features the high-performance OV2775 image sensor, the optional OV495 image signal processor and a serializer camera module.
The OV2775 is built on 2.8-micron OmniBSI-2™ Deep Well™ pixel technology, which offers a 16-bit linear output from a single exposure with best-in-class low-light sensitivity. The sensor is capable of recording 1920 x 1080 resolution videos with a dynamic range exceeding 120 dB. OmniVision's ARDS is available in two configurations, with or without the OV495 ISP.
