OmniVision's OV9286 is a global shutter image sensor designed to enable facial authentication in mobile devices. The high-resolution OV9286 sensor offers 20% more pixels than the previous-generation sensor, to enable the highest level of accuracy in facial authentication. This makes the OV9286 ideally suited for smartphone applications that require the highest levels of security, such as mobile payments, e-banking or personalized device unlocking.

The OV9286 can also be used for other biometric authentication applications. For example, it can be used to combine facial authentication with fingerprint ID for even higher security.

The OV9286 has a high chief ray angle (CRA) of 26.7 degrees, enabling low z-height and allowing slim-profile smartphone designs. Available in a 1/3.5-inch optical format, the OV9286 captures 1328 x 1120 resolution images and video at 90 frames per second (fps) using advanced 3 x 3 micrometer OmniPixel®3-GS technology. Additionally, the sensor's excellent near infrared (NIR) sensitivity at 850 nm and 940 nm helps reduce device power consumption to extend battery life.
