12‑Megapixel PureCel®Plus Sensors for Dual and Single Cameras in Mobile Applications

OMNIVISION’s color OV12A10 and monochrome OV12A1B are 12‑megapixel image sensors designed to deliver premium image quality for both single-camera solutions and, in particular, dual-camera solutions in high-end and mainstream mobile markets. These 1.242‑micron image sensors enable mobile dual-camera solutions to produce advanced DSLR features such as optical zoom, high dynamic range (HDR), and hand jitter reduction with excellent low-light performance and low power consumption.

The OV12A10 and OV12A1B sensors are built on OMNIVISION’s PureCel®Plus technology, which implements buried color filter array (BCFA) and deep trench isolation (DTI) for dramatically reduced color crosstalk, as well as improved signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and sensor angular response.

The 1/2.8‑inch OV12A10 and OV12A1B include phase detection autofocus (PDAF) support and capture full-resolution 12‑megapixel resolution at 30 frames per second (fps), 4K2K video at 30 fps, and 1080p resolution at 90 fps.
