Omnivision announces high-performance image sensor for surround and rear-view cameras
Omnivision has announced its new 1.3-megapixel (MP) OX01J image sensor for automotive 360-degree surround-view systems (SVS) and rear-view cameras (RVC). The OX01J is a raw image sensor with top-of-the-line LED flicker mitigation (LFM) and 140db high dynamic range (HDR). Availability of the OX01J provides automotive OEMs with the flexibility to purchase just the image sensor if they already have their own backend image signal processor (ISP) architecture.
“We originally designed the OX01E20 SoC to provide customers with superior LFM, HDR, and low-light performance for their next-generation vehicles, and it has generated strong market traction since its launch a year ago. In an effort to give our customers greater flexibility for their designs, we now offer the OX01J – it offers the same performance as the OX01E20 SoC but is a raw sensor alternative for our customers to choose from, based on their system architecture,” said Paul Wu, head of automotive product marketing at Omnivision.
The OX01J provides the industry’s best imaging performance in its class, for SVS and RVC across a range of challenging lighting conditions, along with the most compact form factor and lowest power consumption. It features a 3-micron (µm) pixel in a 1/3.55-inch optical format with class leading low-light performance and ultra-low power. It comes in an a-CSP package for the smallest possible solution and is built on Omnivision’s PureCel Plus architecture, which is renowned for its low-light sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio performance.
