SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Intended for integration in smartphones, new image sensors from OmniVision Technologies Inc. offer resolutions of more than 20 MP.
The sensors leverage the company’s new stacked die technology, which separates the imaging array from the image sensor processing pipeline. This enables additional sensor functionalities, such as phase detection autofocus, two-dimensional contrast-based fast autofocus and high-dynamic-range video.
Operating at 24 fps, the the 1/2.3-in. OV23850 has a resolution of 23.8 MP. The 1/2.4-in. OV21840 offers 21.4-MP resolution and a 27-fps frame rate, enabling ultrahigh-definition burst photography.
