Utilizing a 1.75um OmniBSI+ pixel, the OV6946 captures video at 30fps. The OV6946 enables endoscope modules with a width of 1.65 mm and height of 5 mm. Additionally, the sensor's reduced pinout and basic ISP functionality offer extremely easy integration. The OV6946 is currently available for sampling and is expected to enter volume production in the third quarter of 2015.

PRNewswire: OmniVision partners with preferred solution providers Precision Optics Corporation, Inc. (POC) and Fujikura Ltd. to develop the 160K (400 x 400 pixel) camera module, a quick go-to-market camera solution for OEMs. POC is a leader in designing and manufacturing micro-optics and associated medical imaging devices, and Fujikura is a leading miniature CMOS imaging module manufacturer.
Based on OmniVision's new OV6946 sensor, POC's Microprecision lens technology, and Fujikura's flexible micro-coaxial cable technology and small packaging capability, the 160K CIS module provides high quality images and video with a distal end diameter of only 1.60 mm. Evaluation units of the 160K CIS module are currently available, and volume production is expected to begin in 2016.
