OmniVision Technologies, Inc. announced the OS02G10 security image sensor, which provides the best value for mainstream, high-volume security cameras requiring 1080p resolution and excellent low-light pixel performance. The OS02G10 offers best-in-class low-light captures via a 2.8-micron pixel built on the OmniPixel3-HS architecture, which features high quantum efficiency and an optimal signal-to-noise ratio. Compared with OmniVision’s prior-generation mainstream security sensor, it has a 60% better SNR1 and 40% lower power consumption.
OmniVision is using 12” wafers to produce this image sensor, instead of the 8” wafers that are in tight supply but are typically used for 2MP, 1080p sensors. This enables the company to better address the increasing demand for this resolution, which remains the most popular in the steadily growing market for consumer-grade, IoT security cameras, as well as low-end industrial and commercial surveillance cameras.
Other key features include a 15-degree CRA, which is compatible with a broad range of widely available lenses. This sensor also offers an integrated dynamic defective pixel correction algorithm for optimal image quality, and a two-lane MIPI interface. It provides 2MP, 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second.
Samples of the new OS02G10 image sensor are available now in a compact chip-scale package.
