OMNIVISION’s OV9281 and OV9282 are high-speed global shutter image sensors that bring 1 megapixel resolution to a wide range of consumer and industrial computer vision applications, including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), collision avoidance in drones, bar code scanning and factory automation. Built on OMNIVISION’s OmniPixel®3-GS pixel technology, the OV9281 and OV9282 feature a high-speed global shutter pixel with best-in-class near-infrared (NIR) quantum efficiency (QE) to meet high-resolution and low-latency requirements.

Special features of the OV9281 and OV9282 include region of interest (ROI) selection and context switching. This allows some of the camera settings to change dynamically as fast as alternating frames. The sensors are available in both narrow and wide chief ray angle (CRA) settings.

The 1/4-inch OV9281 and OV9282 capture 1280 x 800 resolution images at 120 frames per second (fps) and VGA resolution at 180 fps with 2-lane MIPI and DVP output. The OV9281 and OV9282 also feature support for frame synchronization and dynamic defective pixel correction.

The OV9281 has a chief ray angle (CRA) of 9 degrees and comes in a chip scale package (CSP). The OV9282 features a CRA of 27 degrees and is available in a reconstructed wafer (RW) format. Both sensors are currently available in volume production.
