The OS03B10 CMOS image sensor in a 1/2.7-inch optical format allows OEMs to seamlessly upgrade from 2MP to 3MP for higher quality images and HD video in security surveillance, IP and HD analog cameras

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — March 30, 2022 — OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog and touch & display technology, today announced the new OS03B10 CMOS image sensor that brings high-quality digital images and high-definition (HD) video to security surveillance, IP and HD analog cameras in a 3 megapixel (MP) 1/2.7-inch optical format.

The OS03B10 image sensor features a 2.5 µm pixel that is based on OMNIVISION’s OmniPixel®3-HS technology. This high-performance, cost-effective solution uses high-sensitivity frontside illumination (FSI) for true-to-life color reproduction in both bright and dark conditions.

“Many of our customers already use our OS02G10, an FSI based 2MP 1/2.9-inch image sensor, for security and video applications, such as IP cameras, baby monitors, doorbell cameras, smart TVs, dashcams and more,” said Cheney Zhang, senior marketing manager, OMNIVISION. “The OS03B10 is pin-to-pin compatible with OS02G10, enabling our customers to seamlessly upgrade their security products to a 3MP image sensor, greatly improving image capture and HD video without any redesigns.”

By leveraging an advanced 2.5 µm pixel architecture, the OS03B10 achieves excellent low-light sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, full-well capacity, quantum efficiency and low-power consumption. It can capture videos in a 16:9 format at 30 frames per second. Default and programmable modes allow for a more convenient way of controlling the parameters of frame size, exposure time, gain value, etc. It also offers image control functions such as mirror and flip, windowing, auto black level calibration, defective pixel correction, black sun cancellation and more. The OS03B10 supports DVP and MIPI interfaces.

Samples of the OS03B10 are available now and will be in mass production in Q2 2022. For more information, contact your OMNIVISION sales representative: To learn more about OMNIVISION’s dedication to innovation within the surveillance space, read here.
