OmniVision's OV6946 is an ultra-compact CameraChip™ sensor that brings high quality images and video with excellent color fidelity to endoscopes. The 1/18-inch sensor's 0.9 x 0.9 mm compact package, wide field-of-view with short focus distance, and low power consumption make it an ideal camera solution for medical and industrial applications.

Utilizing an advanced 1.75-micron OmniBSI+™ pixel, the OV6946 captures high quality 400 x 400 resolution images and video at 30 frames per second (fps). The OV6946 enables minimally invasive endoscope module designs with a width of 1.65 mm and height of 5 mm.

The OV6946 CameraChip sensor's reduced pinout and basic image signal processing functionality offer easy integration, enabling faster time-to-market.
