Omivision Releases 1.4um BSI 1080p Video Sensor

PR-Newswire: Omnivision introduced the OV2720, a 1/6-inch, native 1080p/30fps HD image sensor notebook, netbook, webcam and video conferencing applications. Based on 1.4um OmniBSI features sensitivity of 680-mV/lux-sec, and enables extremely thin modules with a z-height of 3.5 mm.

The OV2720 is currently sampling with multiple tier-one customers and is slated to go into mass production in June 2010.


  1. How exactly does it "enable" low module Z height of < 3.5mm...

  2. if you use a f=3.5 lens, you will have 45° field of view ... so it is possible to have 3.5mm module.

  3. Then how they can compensate DOF? is there an EDoF inside?

  4. This was where my original question was headed.
