Automotive SoC excels in LED flicker mitigation for cameras
Omnivision has released its most advanced automotive SoC for surround view systems (SVS) and rear view cameras (RVC). The OX01E20 is pin to pin compatible with 1.3Mpixel designs and brings LED flicker mitigation (LFM) and 140db high dynamic range (HDR) capabilities to the company’s portfolio of automotive single chip image sensor and signal processors.
The OX01E20 is claimed to provides the industry’s best imaging performance for SVS and RVC across a range of challenging lighting conditions. It also has the most compact form factor and lowest power consumption, said Omnivision. In a single 1/4-inch optical format package, the OX01E20 features a three micron image sensor, an advanced image signal processor (ISP) and full-featured distortion correction / perspective correction (DC / PC) and on-screen display (OSD). Designers can achieve a small form factor with “excellent low light performance, ultra-low power, and reduced cost, while also improving reliability by using only one PCB,” said Omnivision.
The HDR and LFM performance applies over the automotive temperature range, added Omnivision.
The OX01E20 is built on Omnivision’s PureCel Plus architecture, which is renowned for its low light sensitivity and provides the industry’s best SNR (signal to noise ratio) performance, claimed the company.
The OX01E20 is ASIL-B safety-compliant. It is sampling now and will be in mass production in June 2023.
