OmniVision's OVM6946 is a compact camera module for medical applications such as minimally-invasive endoscopes. The 1/18-inch OVM6946 utilizes OmniVision's market-proven CameraCubeChip™ wafer-level module technology to streamline manufacturing processes and shorten time-to-market, and is the industry's most cost-effective single-chip imaging solution for single-use endoscopes.

Built on OmniVision's OmniBSI™+ pixel architecture, the OVM6946 captures high quality 400 x 400 resolution video at 30 frames per second (fps). The OVM6946 comes in compact 1.10 mm x 1.10 mm packages with z-heights of 2.37 or 2.27 mm, enabling a 90° or 120° diagonal field of view. The OVM6946 is well-suited to a wide range of endoscope applications, including medical, veterinarian, and industrial.
