World’s First 0.61 µm pixel, High Resolution 4K Image Sensor for High-End Mobile Phone Front Facing & Rear Facing Cameras

OMNIVISION’s OV60A is the world’s first 0.61 micron (µm) pixel high resolution CMOS image sensor that will revolutionize the capabilities of next-generation mobile phone cameras. The OV60A offers 60‑megapixel (MP) resolution with the smallest pixel size in its class at 0.61 µm. The sensor can fit into a 1/2.8-inch optical format in either 3:4 or 16:9 aspect ratio configurations. The 4-cell color filter array on the OV60A uses near pixel binning to output up to 15MP images with 4x the sensitivity offering 1.22 µm equivalent performance for preview and native 4K video with extra pixels for electronic image stabilization (EIS). The sensor also supports low power mode for “always on” sensing that can save precious battery life when paired with the phone’s artificial intelligence functions.

Built on OMNIVISION’s PureCel®Plus-S stacked die technology, the new 0.61 µm pixel is 24 percent smaller in area than the previous generation 0.7 µm pixel solution, yet it can achieve higher Quantum Efficiency (QE) with better crosstalk and angular response than the 0.7 µm generation.

Output formats include 15MP or 4K2K with EIS resolutions at 60 frames per second and supports staggered HDR timing for high dynamic range video enablement. The “always on” low power modes include an ambient light sensing mode for wake up as well as a low power streaming mode. In addition, this sensor also can support dual I/O voltage rails (1.8V and 1.2V) as well as CPHY interface.
