OmniVision's OV7261 is a 3-micron global shutter image sensor for driver monitoring systems in automotive applications. The ultra-compact and power-efficient OV7261 features high quantum efficiency at near-infrared wavelengths, bringing significant LED illuminator power reduction for advanced features in vehicles such as gesture control and driver drowsiness and distraction detection.

Built on OmniVision's market-proven global shutter technology, the OV7261 enables accurate fast motion capture and stereo vision pixel-level synchronization for driver monitoring systems. The OV7261 captures 640 x 480 (VGA) resolution up to 100 frames per second (fps) and delivers 10-bit RAW image output.

The OV7621 comes in an ultra-compact AEC-Q100 Grade 2-qualified 3.9 x 3.4 mm chip scale package.
