Omnivision Releases 5MP 1.4um Pixel BSI Sensor

Trading Markets: Omnivision announced OV5647, a 1/4-inch, 5MP RAW image sensor based on its 1.4um BSI technology. OmniVision’s 1.4um OmniBSI pixel delivers 680-mV/lux-sec sensitivity. OV5647 has 720p/60fps and 1080p/30fps HD video modes. The 720p/60 HD video is captured in full field of view with 2 x 2 binning. Additionally, a post-binning re-sampling filter function unique to the OV5647 removes image artifacts around edges and minimizes spatial artifacts. The sensor fits into 8.5 x 8.5-mm module size with a z-height of less than 5-mm. It supports parallel port or two-lane MIPI and provides 10-bit images in RAW RGB format.

The OV5647 is sampling now and will enter mass production in July 2010. According to iSuppli, 5MP cameras will account for over one-third of all camera phones by 2012.

  1. Hello, apologies for commenting on such an old post, but I'm curious if you know what the pixel architecture is for this sensor. I'm using it to do my graduate research, but can't find anywhere if it's 3T, 4T, etc...

    I suspect it's 3T since I haven't seen any of the characteristic RTS Noise from CDS, but I'd like to be certain.

    Thanks much!
