CategoryImage Sensor - 2MP to 5MP
OMNIVISION’s OS04A10 is a 2.9 µm pixel size, 4 megapixel (MP) resolution member of its industry-leading Nyxel® near-infrared (NIR) and ultra-low light (ULL) image sensor family. It provides security cameras with greater zoom range and AI-enabled surveillance systems with better object identification and facial authentication accuracy. Additionally, it maintains the industry’s best performance, day and night, for detecting incident light in both the visible and NIR wavelengths to produce even more precise color and monochrome images. The OS04A10 also features OMNIVISION’s PureCel®-S die stacking technology, which enables its extremely small package and large 2.9 micron pixel size.
OMNIVISION’s Nyxel® NIR technology imparts the OS04A10 with exceptional quantum efficiency (QE) of 60% at 850 nm and 40% at 940 nm, which is 3x to 5x better than sensors without this technology. This excellent QE enables the use of lower power IR illumination in total darkness, resulting in an estimated 3x reduction in system-level power consumption. Additionally, 940 nm NIR lighting cannot be detected by human eyes in dark indoor settings, while the 850 nm light is ideal for outdoor security cameras.
The OS04A10 achieves industry leading SNR1850nm and SNR1940nm performance that is 2x to 3x smaller when compared with the leading known available competitor sensors. Additionally, OMNIVISION’s integrated dual-conversion-gain technology provides the industry’s best ULL and high dynamic range (HDR) performance, along with greater flexibility in selecting a companion image signal processor.
