Omnivision VGA NIR Camera Module

PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OVM7251 VGA CameraCubeChip module built on the 3um OmniPixel 3-GS global shutter pixel. The module is available in an 850nm version for AR/VR eye tracking, and a 940nm version for machine vision and 3D sensing in mobile facial authentication.

Until now, most camera modules for these applications have been built with rolling shutters, which have latency issues. Meanwhile, global shutter modules have previously been too large and expensive,” said Aaron Chiang, marketing director at OmniVision. “Our new OVM7251 overcomes these challenges by providing a cost effective VGA module with global shutter performance in a wafer-level, reflowable form factor.

The OVM7251’s sleep current consumption is 5mA, and during active mode. The module is available now for sampling and volume production, along with an evaluation kit.

  1. Isn't the sleep current 1-2 orders of magnitude higher than competitors, especially for such a small resolution sensor!
