4K2K Resolution Image Sensor for Home and Professional Security Cameras

The OS08C10 is a high-performance 8MP resolution, small-form-factor image sensor with on-chip staggered and DAG HDR technology, designed to produce superb video/image quality in challenging lighting environments

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — October 24, 2023 — OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog, and touch & display technology, today announced the new OS08C10, an 8‑megapixel (MP) backside illumination (BSI) image sensor that features both staggered high dynamic range (HDR) and single exposure dual analog gain (DAG) for high-performance imaging in challenging lighting conditions. The 1.45‑micron (µm) BSI pixel supports 4K2K resolution and high frame rates. It comes in a small 1/2.8‑inch optical format, a popular size for home and professional security, IoT and action cameras.

“Our new 1.45 µm pixel OS08C10 image sensor provides improved sensitivity and optimized readout noise, closing the gap with big-pixel image sensors that have traditionally been required for high-performance imaging in the security market,” said Cheney Zhang, senior marketing manager, OMNIVISION. “The OS08C10 supports both staggered HDR and DAG HDR. Staggered HDR extends dynamic range in both bright and low lighting conditions; the addition of built-in DAG provides single-exposure HDR support and reduces motion artifacts. Our new feature-packed sensor supports 4K2K resolution for superior image quality with finer details and enhanced clarity.”

OMNIVISION’s OS08C10 captures real-time 4K video at 60 frames per second (fps) with minimal artifacts. Its selective conversion gain (SCG) pixel design allows the sensor to flexibly select low and high conversion gain, depending on the lighting conditions. The sensor adopts the new correlated multi-sampling (CMS) to further reduce readout noise and improve SNR1 and low-light performance. The OS08C10’s on-chip defective pixel correction (DPC) improves quality and reliability above and beyond standard devices by providing real-time correction of defective pixels that can result throughout the sensor’s life cycle, especially in harsh operating conditions.

The OS08C10 is built on OMNIVISION’s PureCel®Plus‑S stacked-die technology, enabling high-resolution 8MP in a small 1.45 µm BSI pixel. At 300 mW (60 fps), the OS08C10 achieves the lowest power consumption on the market. OMNIVISION’s OS08C10 is a cost-effective 4K2K solution for security, IoT and action cameras applications.

The OS08C10 is sampling now and will be in mass production in Q1 2024. For more information, contact your OMNIVISION sales representative:
