Omnivision at MWC 2009

Yahoo: At the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) OmniVision unveiled its latest low-voltage 1/4" 3MP sensor. Featuring OmniVision's 1.75um OmniPixel3-HS FSI pixel, the OV3650 delivers 960mV/lux-sec sensitivity.

The OV3650 operates at up to 15fps at full resolution and provides all required image processing functions, including exposure control, white balance, and defective pixel canceling, all are programmable through the SCCB interface. For customized information purposes, the OV3650 includes a OTP memory. The OV3650 has a one lane MIPI interface and a traditional parallel digital video port.

The OV3650 is immediately available for customer sampling. Volume production is expected in the second calendar quarter of 2009.

Yahoo: Also at MWC in Barcelona, Omnivision demos its OmniBSI Development Platform (OV8810 8MP BSI sensor coupled with Fujitsu Milbeaut M5mo ISP), CameraCube Technology (OVM6680 & OVM7690 sensors), the OV3642 3MP 1.75um pixel SOC with embedded EDoF ISP.


  1. Looks like Omnivision made the OV3650 for somebody that wanted the high sensitivity feature on the cheap, and also did their own image processing. Now what company is known for its lack of supplier loyalty and does its own image processing? iWonder who it could be.

  2. don't get it, sorry.

  3. My guess is that "iWonder" is a clue for Apple.

  4. "Now what company is known for its lack of supplier loyalty". Like your comment...:-)
