Omnivision Announces 5MP 1.4um OmniBSI+ Sensor

PR Newswire: OmniVision announces the 1/4-inch OV5648, a low-cost 5MP sensor for smartphones and tablets. Using the 1.4um OmniBSI+ pixel, the OV5648 is a technology upgrade of the original OmniBSI-based OV5647. The new sensor combines a smaller die size with higher quality photography and HD video. The sensor can fit into a 6 x 6 mm fixed focus module with a z-height of less than 4.5 mm:
OmniBSI+ pixel offers improvements over our original OmniBSI architecture, including a 60% increase in full-well capacity and a significant improvement in low-light performance. The 1/4-inch OV5648 is capable of capturing 720p HD video at 60 fps and 1080p HD video at 30 fps.

The OV5648 is currently sampling and is expected to enter mass production in Q1 2013.
