0.8 Micron, 32-Megapixel Image Sensor for High-End Smartphones

OMNIVISION’s OV32A is a 0.8 micron pixel image sensor with 32 megapixel (MP) resolution. Built on our PureCel®Plus stacked die technology, the OV32A offers leading-edge performance for high-end smartphones. It provides a compact form factor, combined with many advanced features.

The OV32A’s submicron 0.8µ pixel size can provide leading-edge 32MP resolution with a 1/2.8 inch optical format. It uses a 4-cell color filter array, and features on-chip re-mosaic, for full-resolution, 32MP Bayer output in normal light conditions. In low light conditions, the OV32A can use near-pixel binning to output an 8MP image with 4 times the sensitivity. It can output a variety of formats, including 32MP at 15 frames per second (fps), 8MP with 4-cell binning at 60 fps, 4K2K video at 60 fps, 1080p video at 120 fps and 720p video at 240 fps. Additionally, its pad locations on the top and bottom of the image sensor reduce module size in the x-direction, which is ideal for front-facing cameras in thin-bezel, infinity-display smartphones.
