SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 17, 2012 — OmniVision Technologies Inc. has introduced the OV16820 and OV16825, two 16-megapixel CameraChip sensors that support 16-megapixel burst photography and can capture 4K2K video, or quad full high definition, at 60 fps. Built on the 1.34-μm OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture, they were developed to support emerging standards in high-resolution video recording for the digital still and video camera markets and the high-end smartphone market, respectively. The 1/2.3-in. image sensors operate in full resolution (4608 × 3456) video at 30 fps, 4K2K (3840 × 2160) video at 60 fps, and 1080p high-definition video at 60 fps with extra pixels for electronic image stabilization. They enable full-resolution 16-megapixel burst photography, a critical feature for digital still camera applications. All required image processing functions, including defective pixel and noise canceling, RAW scaling, image size, frame rate, exposure, gain, cropping and orientation are programmable through the serial camera control bus interface. The sensors are offered with industry-standard connectivity, including up to eight-lane MIPI and LVDS output interfaces for high data transfer rates. The OV16820 is available in a ceramic land grid array package, while the OV16825 will be available in die form.
