OmniVision's OV9736 is a high-performance image sensor that brings 1392 x 976 resolution at up to 30 frames per second with more than 120 dB dynamic range to automotive imaging applications. The sensor comes in a 1/3.8" optical format and is built on 2.8 µm OmniBSI™-2 Deep Well™ pixel technology, which delivers best-in-class low-light sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) performance even in challenging lighting conditions. The OV9736 is specifically designed to bring the performance of a high-end imaging solution at a cost and form factor suitable for the automotive mass market segment, targeting rear view cameras and 360-degree surround view systems.

The OV9736's Deep Well™ pixel technology provides a 16-bit linear output, capturing 94 dB of scene dynamic range in a single frame, compared to traditional sensors with only 12-bit linear output. This 94 dB output comes without HDR combination artifacts and has no sudden drops in signal-to-noise ratio across the scene. The sensor can further expand dynamic range to more than 120 dB by using a second 'very short' exposure, also minimizing motion artifacts.

The OV9736 is available in an AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified, compact 5.8 x 5.25 mm chip scale package and contains an advanced set of safety mechanisms to enable advanced ASIL camera systems. The sensor is compatible with OmniVision's family of powerful image signal processor (ISP) companion chips for display-based automotive applications.
