SANTA CLARA, Calif. — October 20, 2014 — OMNIVISION Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced the newest additions to its portfolio of OmniHDR™ automotive high dynamic range (HDR) sensors: the 1.3-megapixel OV10642 and the WVGA OV10625. Both the OV10642 and the OV10625 deliver top-level sensitivity and HDR performance in their respective market segments. The sensors also use a special red-clear filter that is required for many forward-looking automotive applications. These benefits enable a host of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), including lane departure warning, blind spot detection and traffic signal detection, among others.
“As more automobiles adopt image sensor technology to enhance safety and the driving experience, the importance of high quality imaging and reliable sensing technology cannot be overstated,” said Inayat Khajasha, senior product marketing manager for automotive products at OMNIVISION. “With industry-leading HDR and ultra-low light sensitivity, these sensors are capable of supporting highly advanced vehicle sensing systems deployed in the latest vehicle platforms.”
The 1.3-megapixel OV10642 image sensor utilizes OmniBSI™ technology to deliver industry leading sensitivity and extended dynamic range in a simple, low-power and cost effective system. The 1/2.6-inch OV10642 supports an active array of 1280 x 1080 pixels and fits into a compact 7.4 x 7.2 mm package.
The 1/3.2-inch, WVGA OV10625 delivers HDR performance of up to 120 dB and best-in-class low-light sensitivity of 15 V/Lux-sec, ensuring accurate scene reproduction in a wide range of driving conditions. The OV10625 supports digital RAW data output and fits into one of the industry’s most compact and efficient 7.3 x 7.8 mm package.
Both sensors are currently sampling and are expected to enter volume production in the fourth quarter of 2014.
