OmniVision Technologies, a known name in the field of advanced digital imaging solutions has announced OV64B, industry’s first and only 64MP image sensor with 0.7 micron pixel size.
The OmniVision OV64B imaging sensor is built-in on OmniVision’s PureCel Plus stacked die technology. It is ideal for the main, wide , ultra-wide or telephoto rear-facing camera in a multi-camera configurations.
Apart from 0.7 micron pixel size, it offers 64MP resolution in 1/2-inch optical format for the first time, allowing smartphone designers to create the thinnest possible smartphone with high resolution 64MP camera.
The OmniVision OV64B supports 3-exposure, staggered HDR timing for up to 16MP video modes. It also integrates a 4-cell color filter array and on-chip hardware re-mosaic for high quality 64MP Bayer output in real time.
In dark environments, it can use near-pixel binning to output a 16MP image with 4X sensitivity offering 1.4 micron equivalent performance. It also allows 2X digital crop zoom with 16MP resolution and fast mode switch.
Additionally, OV64B features type-2, 2×2 microlens phase detection auto focus (ML-PDAF) to boost auto focus accuracy, especially in low light. It has CPHY interface for greater throughput using fewer pins. The imaging sensor also allows slow motion video 1080p at 240fps and 720p at 480fps.
Other outputs include 64MP at 15fps, 8K video at 30fps, 16MP captures 4-cell binning at 30fps, 4K video at 60fps and 4K video with EIS at 30fps.
