OmniVision Technologies Inc. has launched the OV3640, a fully integrated 3-megapixel CameraChip sensor in a 1/4-in. format. Based on the 1.75-μm OmniPixel3 architecture, the device fits the standard 8 × 8-mm sockets used in 2-megapixel camera phones, making it a suitable drop-in upgrade for these handset designs. The sensor features image stabilization as well as a high-speed two-lane mobile industry processor interface (MIPI) to enable the rapid transfer of large blocks of data. It incorporates advanced image signal processing and jpeg compression to allow existing baseband processors without MIPI to support a camera upgrade to 3 megapixels at 15 fps in full resolution.
