The 1/2.3-inch OV16820 and OV16825 sensors are capable of operating in full resolution (4608 x 3456) video at 30fps, 4K2K (3840 x 2160) video at 60fps, and 1080p HD video at 60fps with extra pixels for EIS. Their image processing functions include defective pixel and noise canceling, RAW scaling, image size, frame rate, exposure, gain, cropping and orientation are programmable through the serial camera control bus (SCCB) interface. The sensors have up to 8-lane MIPI and LVDS data outputs.
"It was an industry-wide assumption that smartphones would cut into DSC/DVC sales; but at higher resolutions, we're seeing a very distinct divide between the two markets and both remain strong," said Devang Patel, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision.
The OV16820 is available for sampling in a ceramic land grid array (CLGA) package while the OV16825 will be available in die form (RW/COB). Lens CRA is 8.5deg (non-linear) for DSC/DVC version or 29.7deg (non-linear) for the mobile version. Both sensors are expected to enter volume production by Q4 2012.
