OmniVision Presents its First 0.702um Pixel and 64MP Sensor for Smartphones

PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OV64B, the industry’s only 64MP sensor with a 0.702um pixel size, enabling 64 MP resolution in a 1/2” optical format for the first time. Built on OmniVision’s PureCel Plus stacked die technology, this sensor provides 4K video recordings with EIS, as well as 8K video at 30fps.

This year, TSR estimates there will be 127 million image sensors with 64 MP or higher resolution shipped to smartphone manufacturers,” said Arun Jayaseelan, staff marketing manager at OmniVision. “The OV64B, with the industry’s smallest size for a 64 MP sensor, is further enabling this trend among high end and high mainstream smartphone designers who want the best resolution with the tiniest cameras.

The OV64B supports 3-exposure, staggered HDR timing for up to 16 MP video modes. It integrates a 4-cell CFA with on-chip hardware re-mosaic, which provides 64 MP Bayer output in real time. In low light conditions, this sensor can use near-pixel binning to output a 16 MP image with 4X the sensitivity, offering 1.4um equivalent performance.

The sensor features type-2, 2x2 microlens phase detection AF (ML-PDAF) to boost autofocus accuracy, especially in low light. It also provides a C-PHY interface and supports slow motion video for 1080p at 240 fps and 720p at 480 fps. Other output formats include 64 MP at 15 fps, 8K video at 30fps, 16 MP captures with 4-cell binning at 30fps, 4K video at 60fps and 4K video with EIS at 30fps.

Samples of the OV64B are expected to be available in May 2020.
