OmniVision Launches OmniBSI-2 Image Sensor For Smartphones, Tablets
Monday, June 04, 2012:
OmniVision Technologies has come up with the new 12.7-megapixel CameraChip sensor. The OV12830 enables manufacturers to design high-end smartphones and tablets with improved image and video recording capabilities. The 1/3.2-inch OV12830 is said to utilise the 1.1-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture to capture 1080p high definition (HD) video at 60 frames per second (FPS), and full resolution 12-megapixel high-speed photography at 24 FPS to reduce shutter lag, minimising shutter lag from shot-to-shot.
Thanks to an on-chip RAW scaler, the sensor can record video at 30 FPS while maintaining full field of view. The OV12830 is available in die format with 4-lane MIPI interface connectivity.
