PR Newswire: Omnivision launches a 12.6MP RAW image sensor supporting 1080p/60fps video with electronic image stabilization (EIS) aimed at high-end feature phones and smart phones.
The new OV12825 is built on OmniVision's proven 1.4-micron OmniBSI pixel architecture with sensitivity of 650 mV/(lux-sec). The sensor's binning capability further increases sensitivity in 1080p HD video mode at 60 FPS, while still providing additional pixels for EIS.
The OV12825 has an active array of 4,224 x 3,000 OmniBSI pixels operating at 15fps at full resolution. Its interfaces include 4-lane MIPI, LVDS and DVP. The sensor is currently available for sampling, and volume production is expected to begin by the second quarter of 2011.
While we are at Omnivision, here are few slides from its March 2011 investors presentation:
