The Corephotonics algorithms fuse the images from the wide-angle cameras and telephoto cameras to deliver optical zoom, increase resolution, reduce SNR and enable smoother video transitions. OmniVision's OV12A10 and OV13880 sensors benefits include:
- Slim form factor enabled by reduced module height
- PureCel Plus 1.25um large pixel and 1.0um small pixel
- Dual-camera sync: master/slave capability to switch between sensors during zoom operation
- Low power using unique toggle mode to extend phone battery life
"Corephotonics is widely regarded as a world leader in dual-camera technology," said Will Foote, senior partnership manager, OmniVision. "The rapid expansion of the dual-camera smartphone market gives us the perfect opportunity to combine our companies' expertise. We are pleased to introduce our first joint reference design, and are excited about many more future collaborations based on OmniVision sensors and Corephotonics' algorithm IP."
