Omnivision Introduces 16MP Sensor for Mainstream Smartphones

PRNewswire: OmniVision announces OV16E10 — the new generation in its 16MP sensor family built on 1.12um PureCel Plus stacked die technology.

With 16-MP cameras moving into a greater variety of smartphones, consumers at all price points expect their phones to deliver high-quality images and video,” said Xinjing Wang, product marketing manager at OmniVision. “Following the success of the previous-generation OV16B10 in the high-end mobile segment, this new image sensor brings high resolution with the same excellent image quality and features to the mainstream smartphone market.

Integrated into this sensor is a 2x1 Microlens PDAF. The OV16E10 is adapted for dual-camera and tri-camera designs. Its built-in frame rate synchronization supports image fusion in dual- and triple-cameras while simplifying camera system architectures. The OV16E10 also features a gyro interface that reads and synchronizes the motion data from an external gyroscope to enable image stabilization for video and still capture.

The sensor also supports multiple resolution configurations, including 16MP output at 30 fps, 4K2K video at 60fps, 1080p video at 120fps and 720p video at 180fps.
