The OG01A1B from OmniVision Technologies is a backside-illuminated (BSI) global shutter (GS) CMOS image sensor with a pixel size of 2.2 microns. This 1.3-megapixel image sensor provides 1280 x 1024 resolution at 120 frames per second (fps) and 640 x 480 resolution at 240 fps in a compact 1/5 inch optical format. It has a high NIR quantum efficiency (QE) at 940 nm and 850 nm, enabling the sensor to see farther and better in low- and no-light conditions, which allows designers to use less IR LED light and achieve lower system-level power consumption. For AR/VR headsets, this reduces heat generation.
The OG01A1B is well-suited to multiple machine-vision applications, including AR/VR headsets, drones, robots, and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), as well as facial authentication in smartphones and other consumer electronics. This technology is also ideal for automotive in-cabin driver state monitoring and eye-tracking.
