Omnivision Adds Cable to its Endoscopic Offerings

OmniVision announces the OVMed Cable line of medical endoscope, catheter and dental cables, to create a platform in combination with the company’s portfolio of CameraCubeChip wafer-level camera modules and OVMed ISP boards. Looking on Omnivision endoscopic products, it started from a sensor, then wafer level optics has been added, then ISP, and now, there is a long cable connecting them all together.

BusinessWire: OmniVision and Almalence announce a joint solution that eliminates the conflict between camera size and resolution found in current medical imaging solutions. The solution is based on OmniVision’s OVM6948 CameraCubeChip—the world’s smallest fully packaged, wafer-level camera module measuring 0.65mm x 0.65mm, with a z-height of just 1.158mm. Almalence pre-tuned its SuperResolution algorithm, effectively increasing the OVM6948’s resolution by 1.5x to 300x300 and boosting its SNR by up to 8dB for a total of about 42dB. These increases would otherwise double the image sensor and camera size, due to the required increase in pixel count.
