OmniVision High Frame Rate Camera for Video, Gaming, Portable Entertainment and Webcam Applications

OmniVision High Frame Rate Camera for Video, Gaming, Portable Entertainment and Webcam Applications

OmniVision Technologies, Inc. introduced its latest high-performance VGA sensor that can capture video at 60 frames per second (fps), enabling smoother motion video, as well as improved accuracy for motion detection applications. The high-speed OV7735 VGA sensor provides one of the thinnest (less than 3mm) VGA camera solutions available today, making it ideal for portable applications, including digital video cameras, portable media players, as well as gaming devices and webcams.

The OV7735 is built with OmniVision's popular 3.0-micron OmniPixel3-HS(TM) high sensitivity pixel to produce excellent quality video, even in the most challenging lighting conditions. Achieving a sensitivity of 3300mV/lux-sec, and capable of operating at 60fps in VGA resolution, the OV7735 offers complete user control over image quality, resolution and output data format. The OV7735 provides full frame, sub-sampled, windowed or scaled 8-bit/10-bit images in RAW RGB and YUV formats over a parallel DVP or serial MIPI port, offering a versatile platform for use in single and multi-camera applications.

All required image processing functions, including exposure control, white balance, and defective pixel detection and correction are programmable through the SCCB interface. The OV7735 also addresses image contamination issues such as fixed pattern noise, smearing and blooming, producing a clear and crisp color image. Designed primarily for portable or wireless applications, the new sensor features low power consumption, requiring just 100mW under normal operating conditions.
