Omnivision Introduces 3mm Thin VGA Sensor

Yahoo: Omnivision introduced 3mm thin OV7739 VGA video sensor, developed specifically to address the low-light sensitivity demands of notebook PC market. The 1/7.5 inch OV7739 delivers low light sensitivity of 3300 mV/(lux-sec). The OV7739 is capable of operating at 30fps in VGA resolution and 60fps in QVGA resolution. It provides full-frame, sub-sampled, windowed or scaled 8-bit/10-bit images in RAW RGB and YUV formats over parallel and MIPI interfaces.

The OV7739 is immediately available in volume production.


  1. What do you suppose is meant by "3mm thin VGA sensor"? A normal CSP sensor is much thinner than 3mm.

  2. Basically, I just copied 3mm number from Omnivision's PR. I agree with you that it sounds strange.

  3. It means the height of NB camera module include lens. OV claimed that she may provide a smller module for thinner NB webcam I guessed.

  4. I agree that means module height. But OV need a better PR indeed.
