Medical imaging sensor
Aug 2006Omnivision Technologies Inc.Request Info
OmniVision Technologies Inc. has released a 1/18-in.
CMOS image sensor for use in disposable cameras for medical applications such as
intubation and diagnostic systems. The OV6920 2.1 x 2.3-mm chip scale package will
make possible a camera module that is 3.2 mm in diameter. The module is expected
to make many medical procedures less invasive for patients. It will enable the fabrication
of smaller medical devices, such as endoscopes, for use in infants and children.
The single-chip OmniPixel2 CameraChip system requires only a clock and power to
get the NTSC composite signal out for direct interface with a VCR/TV/monitor. It
employs a single 3.3-VDC power supply.
