PR Newswire: 10MP OV10810 has been named the best image sensor of 2011 by Electronic Design Magazine, as part the publication's annual 'Best Electronic Design' awards. Determined by staff editors, the awards recognize the most significant designs and innovations of the year across fifteen categories, ranging from power and communications to components and displays.
"The OV10810's ability to capture full-frame 10-megapixel images while simultaneously recording 1080p high-definition video sets it apart from other image sensors," said Mathew Dirjish, component editor at Electronic Design Magazine. "The complete convergence of high-resolution still photography and high-definition video places it in the top ranks of this year's best image-sensing technologies."
"The OV10810 leverages our second generation OmniBSI pixel architecture", said Devang Patel, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision. I'm a little confused about the difference between the second generation OmniBSI, OmniBSI-2 and OmniBSI+. Interesting that neither initial OV10810 announcement nor the product's page mention the second generation of OmniBSI.
