The ultra-thin (3 mm) high-performance OV7739 video sensor provides the ideal image solution for a variety of applications including mobile, notebook PCs, netbooks, and gaming applications. In addition to its small footprint and high-performance features, the OV7739 is capable of producing various output formats over a parallel DVP or serial MIPI port, providing a versatile platform for use in single and multi-camera applications.

Developed specifically to address the low-light sensitivity demands of the fast-growing mobile market, the OV7739 delivers best-in-class low light performance at 3300 mV/lux-sec, enabling high quality video conferencing and recording in virtually any lighting condition.

Based on OmniPixel3-HS™ architecture, the 1/7.5-inch OV7739 is capable of operating at 30 frames per second (fps) in VGA resolution and 60 fps in QVGA resolution with complete user control over image quality, formatting and output data transfer. The OV7739 provides full-frame, sub-sampled, windowed or scaled 8-bit/10-bit images in RAW RGB and YUV formats.

All required image processing functions, including exposure control, white balance, and defective pixel canceling, are programmable through the SCCB interface. The OV7739 eliminates image contamination issues such as fixed pattern noise, smearing and blooming to produce a clean, stable and vivid color image.
