PR Newswire: OmniVision introduces the 1/9-inch OV9724 sensor offering 720p/30fps video in a miniaturized form factor. Developed specifically for highly compact designs, the new CameraChip sensor is based on 1.4um OmniBSI+ pixel to enable camera modules of less than 2.5 mm in height. This allows HD cameras to be integrated into ultra-slim, narrow-bezel devices, such as next-generation smartphones, notebooks, tablets, portable gaming systems and other mobile devices.
Additionally, OmniVision introduced the OVM9724, which corresponds to the OV9724, packaged in CameraCube format. The OVM9724 offers an easy-to-integrate, cost-effective camera solution for even thinner bezel notebook and tablet designs.
The OV9724 comes with a one-lane MIPI interface and fits into a 6 mm x 4.5 mm x 2.5 mm module size. It is currently available for sampling and is expected to go into volume production in Q2 2012. The OVM9724 comes in a 4 mm x 3 mm x 2.5 mm CameraCube module and is expected to start sampling early in Q2 2012.
